Budget Getaways Review

Ottersdrift Farm spans the banks of the Kars River, 10 kays from Bredasdorp.

For kids and adults alike, the farm has it all: wide open spaces, carp fishing on the river, quiet farm roads for the bikes, kayaks ready and waiting, a swing rope hanging from the old tree... 

The cottage itself has been tastefully renovated with light and simple furnishings, clay floor tiles, a modern kitchen and clean bathrooms.

The living areas are spacious and comfortable. The fully equipped kitchen has all you need to whip up those guilt-free holiday feasts. Adding to the gesellig atmosphere is an indoor fireplace.

Stepping out from the living room, you have a lawned garden, calm farm views, a fire pit and plunge pool. What better spot to pass a sultry summer eve?

Like we said, there's no shortage of things to do at Ottersdrift - so better brace yourself. Off the farm there are wine routes, the De Hoop Nature Reserve, The Shipwreck Museum in Bredasdorp (and a few restaurants), and Cape Agulhas at Africa's southern point.

A regular Ottersdrift patron sums up the experience:: “What we enjoy most is the absolute peace and quite in a beautiful farm atmosphere. We feel totally relaxed every time we leave.”

No arguing with that.

Guest Reviews

"We had a wonderful stay in the gorgeous and tranquil setting of Ottersdrift Farm. Annemie added some lovely personal touches to make us feel at home. This is a great spot for getting away from it all, or to use as a base for exploring the surrounding area. The beautiful setting, comfortable and homely atmosphere of the cottage, and warm hospitality of the owners make this a perfect weekend getaway!"

"We loved this farmhouse. The lovely grass outside, the small swimming pool and the dog friendliness make this an awesome spot for us. The ability to have a bigger family or friends come along and still be able to have separate living areas was also really nice."

"We had a wonderful stay at the cottage and I would recommend it to anyone visiting the area. Our host, Annemie, made sure that we had everything we needed during our stay."

"Had a magical four days at Ottersdrift. Annemie and her family are the most wonderful, welcoming and friendly hosts who made every effort to ensure myself and my dogs were happy and enjoying our stay. The cottage is beautifully equipped with everything you need, lovely big fireplace in the lounge to keep warm, and the farm itself is just beautiful. Looking forward to the next visit."

"We have visited Ottersdrift on two occasions, in summer and in winter. The cottage is comfortable, clean and fully equipped with quality essentials and special personal touches. We are absolutely delighted with the setting. What we enjoy most is the absolute peace and quite in a beautiful farm atmosphere. We feel totally relaxed every time we leave. A great place for families with young children."

"Absolutely loved our stay. Recommended a few of our friends to stay there as well."
