Budget Getaways Review

Set on a working herb and avo farm in the picturesque Magoebaskloof, The Herb Cottage is a secluded cottage just minutes away from the main hub of town.

This four-sleeper self-catering abode has two bedrooms (Queen and twin) with ensuite bathrooms - one of these is wheelchair-friendly. The main bedroom opens to the swimming pool.

The farm-style kitchen is light and airy and drenched in a warm glow, thanks to the stained glass windows. Modern appliances, a fresh herb bouquet on arrival to spice up hubbie's one-pot wonder, a convivial dining table, you're set to go.

The sun-drenched living area is comfortably furnished and has huge windows with pretty outlook over the garden. 

The Herb Cottage is a versatile spot, suited to small families and romantically-inclined couples - if you fall into the latter category, a picnic hamper (with bubbly) can be arranged, for slow enjoyment at the water's edge. 

Plenty on-site activities, close to town, super comfy, The Herb Cottage is as good as they come.

Guest Reviews

"We had a really lovely stay at the Herb Cottage. The cottage is very comfortable with all your needs taken into consideration and very tastefully decorated, the bouquet of fresh herbs on the table led to some unique dishes and even tastier cocktail drinks.The pool deck and garden view was very relaxing and peaceful, perfect for afternoon sundowners. Ralph and Elspeth our hosts were very attentive and friendly during our stay, we will love to return for another visit."

"We stayed two days in the Herb Cottage and we had an amazing time. The cottage and the forest around are beautiful. The owners are very nice people. Can't wait to come back!"
