My husband and I spent a weekend of peaceful bliss at the Mont Rouge Cottage. The cottage was next to a little river and under a massive oak tree. The views are spectacular and a serene atmosphere makes for a relaxing weekend getaway. The cottage is well equipped for self catering and even features an outdoor braai.
We stayed at what is called the honeymoon cottage although the only honeymoon we celebrated was the stay on this pretty farm. Yes they warn you about tractor noises but that just added to the appeal. The cottage was situated under oaks so be prepared for the occasional acorn crash landing on the roof. But you're on holiday so if your sleep is interrupted, so what. A sweet little stream bubbles beneath your little cottage. Do take an early morning walk amongst the fruit trees. The friendly farmer will bid you a good morning. Enjoy.
We stayed in cottage 3 at Mont Rouge. It was everything we hoped for and more when we booked.
Traveling with our 6 month old son in the middle of winter, we were worried about keeping warm. The cottage is super cozy though, with an indoor fireplace that heats the place up well.
The views from the cottage are epic - with the front of the cottage being made up by sliding glass doors - you feel as if you are in the middle of the orchards - which you kind of are.
The cottage is furnished tastefully, the kitchen has everything you might need, and the little balcony overlooking the stream is very cool.
The place was clean and neat, and the farm beautiful, with loads of paths and tracks to bicycle on and explore.
It was peaceful and quiet - the other cottages are far enough away that you don't have anything to do with your neighbours. We had a great time out from the city here and will be visiting again.

Such a great getaway. The views are spectacular, cottages are comfortable and equipped. Blown away by the natural beauty of the area.
We visit the area to experience the beautiful Winterhoek mountains and the farm with the orchards in full blossom. The view from the cottage are really breathtaking and the area absolutely peaceful.
