5 cottages situated behind the wine estate, just below the mountains, along a little stream, in a very quiet area - just the place to unwind.
We stayed in number 3 - the middle cottage, and it has all you need - a simple kitchen with basics to cater for yourself (but why bother, given the good restaurants 10 minutes drive away in Franschhoek), a very nice huge bed, a small dining table, a comfortable couch, shower and little else (no TV, yay!) - the perfect place to do very little in. With its close location it is excellent to explore the area, yet allowing you to escape the tourist hordes when you've had enough. Stony Brook is still one of my favourite wine estates, so going for a tasting is a must, and the service, especially if Joy is there, always superb.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Three of the cottages are single bedroom units that sleep two and one (Cottage 5) is larger with two double bedrooms each with its own en suite bathroom. There are basic cooking and barbeque facilities available in each of the units and there is access to a communal swimming pool.
