Ran­dom Har­vest Coun­try Cot­tages


Getaway (South Africa) - - CRADLE OF HUMANKIND -

Eight cute cot­tages, each sleep­ing two, are dot­ted in the lush, groomed gar­dens of this 21-hectare farm and indige­nous plant nurs­ery. Each cot­tage is dif­fer­ent but most are open-plan, with white steel-frame cot­tage-pane win­dows and French doors that open onto lush gar­dens filled with bird­song. Six are set up for self-cater­ing; the other two have a mi­crowave, small fridge, and tea/cof­fee-mak­ing fa­cil­i­ties (these work well for one-nighters or ad­di­tional friends or fam­ily of guests in the ad­join­ing self-cater­ing cot­tages). Well man­aged by warm David Valoyi, the cot­tages come with gen­er­ous touches: com­pli­men­tary char­coal (fires are even pre­pared on re­quest) and daily top-ups of rusks, fil­ter cof­fee, fresh farm milk, cream and but­ter from the res­i­dent dairy herd. There’s a tea­room serv­ing great-value break­fasts and light meals if you don’t feel like cook­ing, and staff will help you set up a cen­tral gather­ing spot on the lawns if you de­cide to take over the en­tire farm. ROOM TIP Laven­der Tree and Le­mon Thorn have a great feel, each with pretty pri­vate gar­den spa­ces. Bush­wil­low and ad­join­ing Rock Fig are a great op­tion for two cou­ples or a fam­ily.
