“A Home abroad ”
Reviewed 24 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We stayed in this little gem for a couple of days with our little one. Jayne was such a lovely and very helpful and polite host. Always eager to help and making you feel comfortable.
We stayed in the Savannah cottage and we loved it. It was clean and the attention to details so lovable! The area is safe and peaceful. Very good to relax as well. The kitchen and the bathroom had everything we needed. The bed was comfortable as well. The cottage was cleaned every day and we even got little treats. Jayne's daughter had made a banana cake and Jayne brought us some. Just the presentation alone was heartwarming and the cake was so yummy. At the end we did not want to leave and still think of the great time we had. It's a little heaven.

“Extremely helpful”
Reviewed 12 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

This may be considered inappropriate, but I was looking for accommodation near A venue and Jayne was extremely helpful and told me that she was a bit far from that venue, despite the fact that she had accommodation available, she referred me to something close. This kind of integrity is invaluable in the industry. Thank you Jayne

“Beauty, comfort and unsurpassed hospitality”
Reviewed 6 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Staying at Inverness Cottages was the most pleasurable experience. We arrived to find not only the most gracious hosts, Jayne and Peter. But a beautiful farm with animals, views of rolling hills and valleys, and a tastefully furnished cosy, cottage. Every single need we had was catered for upfront. We found lovely locally made coffee, tea, biscuits, rusks, fresh milk and instant porridge in a well stocked kitchen. Not to mention choccies on your pillow...every day. Jayne was even kind enough to give us a plate of home baked biscuits!! What a lovely surprise. I will definitely be going back as I cannot fault Inverness on anything. It is perfect!!!

Thank you so much Camilla for such a lovely review - it is always heartwarming to know that all our little extras are appreciated! :)
We loved hosting you all and look forward to seeing you again in Winter...which will be a very different experience for you with our chilly weather! But, a fireplace, electric blankets and heaters will ensure you are kept cosy and warm!
Take care and have a great year ahead...
Warm regards
Jayne

“Quaint little coop”
Reviewed 22 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed over for only one night while traveling between Durban and Johannesburg. What a mistake! We should have stayed longer.

The cottage we stayed in was beautifully decorated, very well furnished and thoughtfully equipped. This will comfortably sleep 4 adults and both rooms have en-suite bathrooms. The living area is very well laid out and caters for everyone to socialize no matter what you are busy with (like one making food). The Kitchen had all the utensils and appliances one could hope for including extras like milk, coffee, and even instant porridge.

It should also work well in winter as there were 3 gas heaters in the living area and panel heaters in the rooms. The ceiling is also insulated from the cold and holds in heat.

The setting is absolutely breathtaking and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. The attention to detail and the beautiful interior make it even more special. Many thanks to Jayne for the warm welcome to their home. We would definitely recommend Midlands Inverness Farm Cottages to anybody visiting the Midlands. Hope to return soon!

Just sometimes you find a place that gets everything right. The room was perfect in every way - the room was ultra clean and comfortable, the little bunches of lavender on the bed, towels, toilet rolls, the personalised welcome sign and bottle of sherry, the stunning views. The warm welcome from Jayne, the couldn't do more to help you attitude - but not overwhelming. Just sometimes you find the place that gets everything right and Jayne's and her family cottages just do that. I really can't speak highly enough. Looking forward to planning our next visit.

Our visit to Inverness for two nights over the valentines weekend was just so amazing , we were treated like family and its a beautiful farm with fantastic views of the surrounding country side. My wife , daughter and myself just love the area and can't wait to go back.
