Budget Getaways Review

Although we havent managed to find much in the way of guest reviews for this spot on the outskirts of Dullstroom, we really like the look of it.

Overlooking a lake and Steenkampsberg Nature Reserve, Fox and Squirrel appears to tick most Budget Getaways boxes: good location, cosy and romantic atmosphere, plenty of lovely touches, and a decent price tag.

The cottage sleeps a total eight guests across four bedrooms, two of these spacious double rooms with bay windows, open fireplaces, mini lounge areas, and open layout bathrooms with ball and claw Victorian baths, and sitting areas. Nice.

Apart from above, there are a pair of twin rooms, each with own shower, washbasin and toilet. 

The inviting kitchen is well equipped with an array of appliances and the living area comes with big leather couch, fireplace and DSTV. Just the place to kick back at after a hard day on the dam. 
 
The chilled shaded patio with Weber overlooks the dam and Suikerboskoppie. A comfortable patio overlooks the Dullstroom dam and Suikerboskoppie. A Weber braai is available on the patio and the cottage offers a well equipped kitchen with modern appliances (including oven, microwave, fridge freezer and 4-plate stove).
 
We say given this potentially ideal group getaway a twirl and let us know what you think.
