The Cob­house

South African Country Life - - Country Escapes -

While driv­ing from East Lon­don to Port El­iz­a­beth we de­tour to Alicedale, a small set­tle­ment on the banks of the Bush­man’s River. We’re in­trigued to find The Cob­house, on a farm a few kilo­me­tres out of town, in the re­mote Ca­cadu dis­trict. Suit­ably charmed, we spend the night in the house with a choice of three cosy en-suite bed­rooms. It’s self-cater and elec­tric­ity-free, an en­chant­ing re­treat for a party of up to ten to get back to na­ture. Guests can visit sur­round­ing game re­serves and golfers can en­joy a round on the Bush­man Sands Golf Course. The house is won­der­fully cool in sum­mer, and we’re as­sured that on a cold even­ing all we’d need do is light up a crack­ling log fire in one of the wood-filled fire­places. This is a happy, rest­ful place to spend a few days.
