Budget Getaways Review

Berry Cottage offers a clean and practical base to Franschhoek's varied attractions. It's situated on a small (1.2ha) berry farm, just 5km from the town and its award winning eateries and lies within walking distance of four prestigious wineries - a big plus, if you ask us.

The cottage is circled by long open views of the valley and mountains, green lawns and a flourishing garden. Your host's home is set about 20m away. A small stream gurgles close by, lined by stone pines and home to Egyptian geese, hadedas and squirrels - elements that up to a relaxed karma.

The cottage is simply furnished, with little evidence of clutter. Clay tiles and Persian rugs throughout, a free-standing fireplace, a functional kitchen, original prints on the walls, simple bedrooms dressed in white percale cotton, is the general theme.

The main bedroom is ensuite and comes with double bed, while the second bedroom has two singles and an adjacent bathroom. As such, Berry Cottage comfortably sleeps four.

French doors open from the lounge onto a small patio and the rolling lawn. There's a further outdoor area with table and chairs, as well as a pool nearby, which you will no doubt make good use of after a hard day's wine-tasting and self-indulgence.

"Very enjoyable stay, and very private as it's the only cottage on the premises."

"A quaint cottage, simply furnished, comfortable and homely with plenty of room for two adults and two teens. It is set on a beautiful property in a garden that has featured in Franschhoek's Open Garden day. The hosts are warm and welcoming, and the homemade scones with jam were a lovely touch on a Sunday morning. Berry Farm is a welcome retreat once you've had enough of the wine, bustle and (slightly pretentious) vibe of the village."
