We stayed only one night , as we attended a wedding nearby. I wish we had stayed 2 nights, such a great place, the host (Maryke) was excellent and really cares about her guests. I would recommend this for a nice breakaway or overnight anytime....More

An amazing neat location, surrounded by peace and tranquility. The adventure part of long walks and experiencing cows being milk was so much fun.

Somewhere between Gansbaai and Stanford, deep into farmlands on dirt roads, the Traveller's Cottage feels like home from the word go, only more comfortable. Free time outdoors walking the fynbos-mountains, a visit to a real dairy farm and absolutely breathtaking scenery over both cultivated farmlands...More
