A Piece of Quiet

Getaway (South Africa) - - THE FINAL CUT BARRYDALE -


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.
