A Piece of Quiet
This dinky cottage, located above the R62 in the garden of Tessa Bruning, is a cosy little womb, ideal for the solo traveller or a romantic breakaway for two. The bedroom, furnished with a double bed, is entered from a stoep that enjoys elevated views over the garden and mountains. There is a bathroom with shower, and a cute kitchen equipped with the basics and a small table seating two. Guests are welcome to use the swimming pool, relax in the garden and explore the hills behind the cottage, or they can book a more structured retreat with Tessa. A one- or two-day retreat can be tailor-made to your needs, but could start with a sunrise meditation on the hill overlooking town, followed by a silent walking meditation. Mindfulness is encouraged in a mix of creative activities, preparing a shared meal and periods of silence alternating with discussions. Or simply check in and enjoy the privacy and serenity that permeates this aptly named cottage.
