Budget Getaways Review

These two character cottages on a quiet McGregor street, both oozing a great deal of rural charm, place you right in the centre of the village, yet surrounded by tranquil gardens and a distinctly rural setting.

Wild Almond Cottage: Is a cozy and uncomplicated cottage made up of two bedrooms, (a queen and double), the queen room being ensuite (with shower) and the double room utilising a bathroom with bath. There is an additional hot shower outdoors as well. Towels are provided. The living area, floored with chunky terracotta tiles, shares an open plan kitchen, fully equipped for self-catering. There is also a large, cast iron fireplace. Open the patio doors and you've got a wonderful covered space, leading out onto a contained garden, with a swimming pool. A much needed escape in the McGregor summers! There is a Weber braai on the outside patio. Added to the mix of convenience is off street parking and free WiFi.

The Annex: Situated alongside, yet completely private and within its own Mediterranean style garden setting. The Annex is decorated in an effortless mix of classic and contemporary, and is equally as charming as its neighbour. Sleeping four, there are two queen bedrooms, both ensuite. The barn-style living area offers a feeling of space and comfort and has an open fireplace and large dining table. You've also got a modern, fully equipped kitchen perfectly set up for self-catering. Throw open the wood and glass doors from the living room and you're out on the vine covered patio overlooking the garden. Blissful indeed. As with Wild Almond, there are quality towels and linen and free wifi.

With these two charming cottages offering a well-appointed stay in a great part of the village, the option to book both units at once is available, accommodating up to eight people.

Whether it's just the two of you, or a group of friends, both are well positioned and within easy walking distance to the nearby main street and restaurants. So, for an easy going hang out in the heart of McGregor, both look to be rather delicious.

Additional Info

  • There is a shared farm-style pool on the property which you can use to cool off in summer

"This quaint cottage will have you dreading the day you need to pack up and go home! We spent the entire very rainy, cold weekend in front of the fireplace, red wine in hand.Dennis has a lovely selection of cd's and dvd's to choose from. Sadly we could not benefit from the beautiful stoep and splash pool due to the weather - but all the more reason to return in the summer."

"We absolutely loved the cottage. All we needed was provided and tasteful. The cottage was kept warm in the chilly month of July with electric blankets in all the beds and a cozy indoor closed fireplace. The garden is beautiful too. We highly recommend Wild Almond to future guests."
