We loved out stay at this beautiful cottage and it was much better than we had anticipated. beautifully located and perfect for some rest and quiet. The horses came to the cottage and our little son (2) was able to feed them and enjoy getting to know horses. Knysna and Plett are both about 15km from the Farm and so everything is within easy reach. The cottage is nice and spacious, well kitted and has everything you need. Liz met us, was very helpful and assisted us with all our special requests. Very thankful for our time there and hope to be back. I believe that this offers a good value for money option on the Garden Route and is a little haven.
Merlins Cottage is a quiet retreat away from all the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
The cottage has wonderful views of all the local wildlife including the resident horses that come up to meet you on the decking most mornings.
You can take a quiet stroll through the adjoining woodland to escape the heat of the day and even have the fire pit going in the evening to do some outdoor cooking.
All amenities were available and it was also nice to have a log burner in the chilly evenings.
Liz and Hannes were great and we hope that we will go back to see them again soon.
Angel's Rest was once again the highlight of my Garden Route holiday.
Amazingly beautiful scenery, spacious, comfortable accommodation & incredible hospitality. If you need a bit of a break from everything - Angel's Rest is the perfect destination.
Apologies to Liz and Hannes for this late review. We arrived much later than anticipated, but were warmly welcomed by Liz at Merlins Cottage. We were immediately impressed with the layout of the cottage and the large basket of home grown veg and free range eggs enable us to have a simple but very enjoyable supper after our long drive.
In the morning, we were visited by the 11 rescue horses resident on the farm. Watching them come from the stables and drink at the waterhole was amazing. One of first purchases was a suitable supply of apples and carrots! Another event that made us laugh, occurred when Liz walked the 4 Border Colie dogs in the evening - we were amazed to see them being closely followed by their 3 cats as well!
Our stay was very relaxing, with access to many of the places we were to visit within a short drive.
We would like to thank Liz and Hannes for a truly wonderful stay and hope to visit again in the future.
This was my 6th visit to my second and spiritual home
As usual it was magical, within hours my stress levels were reduced and I sleep better here than anywhere else
The horses are wonderful- gentle and welcoming as are the dogs, cats, and of course Liz and Hanes, however Maya remains my special favourite ❤️
All amenities are there - well stocked kitchen, hairdryer and lots of books and games

Our stay at Angels Rest was wonderful. The location is amazing and very nice and peaceful. We loved and enjoyed the company of the horses around the house. The host Elizabeth are very friendly and welcomed us with a basket of fresh farm eggs with herbs. Our stay was very pleasant and I will recommend it to all who want to stay in peace. The house is fully equiped very everthing. Nothing short. It was also very clean at our arrival. One of the higlights is definately the horses roaming free around the house. They are adorable. We'll visit again if possible !! Regards Lynette Moore - Uitenhage.
