"I enjoyed a wonderful quiet weeks break at this beautiful, clean and stylishly decorated cottage on the Breede. Fabulously fitted out to be your home away from home. The lodge restaurant is a two minute walk if you don't feel like self-catering and a few other restaurants not far by car. I highly recommend the River View Cottage with it's stunning views and its perfect. The best week of this crazy Covid year we've all had. Thank you. I'll be back. Cathryn Cooper"
