Picturesque spot in the mountains outside Montagu below Burgher's Pass. Great walks, running and mountain biking for us and the kids. The girls loved the tractor ride and Potjkiekos on the neighbouring Protea Farm; and the highlight was a visit to Avalon Hot Springs. They loved looking at all the gooseberries currently in season on the farm. And we enjoyed the fresh yummy gooseberry jam. We had very cold, rainy and windy weather, but it was warm inside with nice effective wall panels. We were fine with the extra blankets they suggested we bring. The inside fireplace smoked quite a bit though, probably wet wood. The cottages are small, no real sitting area if it's too cold to sit outside, just the two rooms and the small kitchen with table. Also not user-friendly shelves for unpacking clothes in the bedrooms. But it suited our needs, and we were there for only 3 nights. Two downsides … the amount of dog pooh around the cottages from other people's dogs before us perhaps, or the resident dogs … And the bottle labelled "staff tips" inside the cottage which we thought was a bit odd. I've never seen that before at a self-catering spot, or left tips at a self-catering spot. Perhaps that's just us. We would definitely recommend to friends and come back :)
