Our family spend the Easter Weekend in the Zara cottage on Wolverfontein. So much peace and quiet, we didn't want to leave again. We loved the beautiful dogs that came to say good morning every day. There were mountain bikes for the boys, and a cool stoep for me to sit and read. And at night the stars from horizon...

We had a wonderful stay, with hosts being there when we needed them but never in our way. Got to relax and forget about the busy world for a bit. Very interesting decor that kept us busy to find all the strange and quirky things they have come up with. Thanks our stay was great!

We often drive down from Rustenburg to Hermanus and have booked in at many places before discovering Wolverfontein Farm Cottages.....we will not bother looking for another place to stay over ever again. Between Ashley, Andre and the 3 gorgeous dogs you feel right at home. The little cottage has got so much character - we parked off on the veranda...

Ashley was a lovely host and the old farm house was fully equipped, couldn't ask for more. The perfect getaway for a dessert queen. I love the mysterious beauty of the Klein Karoo.

It was wonderful to accommodate you, and your kind words are much appreciated. The reserve you speak of is the Touwsberg Nature Reserve, which is literally 500m from our front door. Glad you enjoyed your stay.

Accommodation is exquisite and full of character. The hosts especially friendly and accommodating. The perfect get-away to just switch off, relax and forget about the rat race. The environs are beautiful beyond belief and mountain-biking in the nearby game reserve a great experience. Thank you, Ashley and Andre

Most people thought I was mad when I told them I'd be headed out into the Klein Karoo during the summer holidays but I knew exactly what I was in for (heat & sun wise). Sunblock and hats ... and don't go outside between 8am and 6pm. Don't worry, it gets light early and only really properly dark at around...

Route 62 certainly delivered on its strap line of A journey to the unexpected. Replenished with provisions from the more than adequate OK Store in Barrydale, and food and drink from Diesel and Creme, and of course Ronnies sex shop, we headed left off the road onto a dirt track. On our left a reserve with Cape Zebra, which up...
