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.

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.

Helen and Barend are the most welcoming hosts one could ask for, they instantly make you and your fur babies feel like family in their beautiful home away from home. The grounds are spectacular with out-of-this-world views, the accommodation is exquisite and is maintained beautifully and the hosts are nothing but helpful and accommodating. You do not go wanting when staying at Crab Apple and it is a once in a lifetime experience that everyone should endeavor to enjoy! Thank you to Helen, Barend, the staff and your awesome furry friends for making our stay so memorable!

We have absolutely loved our stay in Wood Owl Cottage. Helen and Barend, everything from the booking process to the welcome to our overall stay was nothing short of magical. You made it feel like a home away from home. Luna and Scally loved your big beautiful gardens and playing with your fur kids. Thank you so much for a much needed time out. We hope to be back.

We stayed in Crowned Eagle cottage with a beautiful view from the deck over the forest to the valley below. Its so peaceful and comfortable and our hosts were so friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. Even our little dog had an amazing holiday, going for walks with us! We will be back!!

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.
