Delightfully comfortable, Crab Apple’s AA Superior Cottages are set on the edge of the Kilgobbin Forest and the Dargle Valley Conservancy. Generations of visitors have experienced the soul-restoring reassurance that comes with being surrounded by the beauty of creation. The forest is filled with ancient trees, animals and over 200 species of birds. Find out more about birding and our walking trails here.

Retreat to one of our three thatched, self-catering cottages furnished with every comfort. The spacious, open plan living area, leads onto a sun deck. Each bedroom has a queen-sized bed and the loft, just up above the living area, has two single beds, so is ideal for the children. There is an antique cast iron Victorian tub and shower in the en-suite bathroom. The heated pool, braai and entertainment area are available for you to use. Fur-children are welcome.

Our delicious spring water, from the taps, is drinkable. We have also invested in a generator to ensure that should Eskom load shed, you will enjoy the luxury of a continuous electricity supply. There will be no ‘lights out’ during your stay with us. Enjoy our free Wi-Fi.

This is the second December in 2 years we have stayed at Crabapple Cottages. Once again, an out of this world experience! The hosts, Helen and Barend share their love and their joy with their guests. The hospitality was outstanding, the accommodation, beautiful and the location, breathtaking.
The Dargle Valley, one of those hidden gems brims with warm, interesting personalities. My wife, our dog, Brody and myself can't wait to return!

We were delighted to attend Zoe’s wedding here as my mother, Winsome Strapp born 23 August 1929, attended boarding school at Kilgobbin from the age of six. So special seeing her listed as the 50th pupil on p50 of `My Dagle’. I spent my first 5 years growing up in Dargle and have fond and special memories here!!
Fabulous cottage and hosting.

Crab Apple is paradise on Earth and Helen and Barend are angels. We had a wonderful time with all the horses, dogs, cats, chickens, birds and monkeys. The accommodation is tasteful, has every comfort you need, is spacious and considered. Helen and Barend go out of their way to ensure your comfort and nothing is too much trouble. Definitely worth at least 5 stars.

Quaint corners, scenic drives, a range of places to visit. Blueberry Cafe at Netherwood Farm stands out as a highlight - for numerous reasons.

Dargle is close to where we live in Kloof but we feel like we are on holiday in the country side. We love walking in the forest at Crab Apple Cottages.
