Interaction with guests
A warm welcome awaits you. We love having guests and aim to give each of our visitors the best stay possible. We deal with all bookings, guests and guest-related matters personally. The farm is our home and we are on hand to share local info and advice as needed. We live in a beautiful place and enjoy sharing it with visitors. Our friendly horses visit Merlin's Cottage regularly along with Kashmir the socialite of our 3 cats. We'll prepare a welcome basket of fresh farm eggs and herbs from our garden on arrival specially for you and happily share produce from our veggie garden in season.

Well, its hard to describe, but Merlin's Cottage at Angles Rest is an experience we will not forget, a wonderful three day stop in this special place, and not least because of the kindness and hospitality of Hannes. The fresh eggs (literally collected from the hens), the home made jam (we recommend the tomato jam...really), sitting around the fire pit...

About the neighbourhood
Seventeen hectares, 42 acres, of natural peace. Angels Rest Farm Retreat lies within the Garden Route National Park in one of the most tranquil parts of the Southern Cape.

Whatever you want to do, our relaxed accommodation offers a peaceful get away, your home from home ideal for exploring the natural beauty of the area and with easy access to many local attractions including wineries, animal sanctuaries, artisan handicrafts, blue flag beaches, nature reserves, hiking and biking trails and adrenalin sports.
Getting around
You'll need a car to reach us and get around in the Garden Route. Main roads are tarred and well-maintained in general but public transport is not widely available.
