Wild Plum Cottage is an open-plan self-catering cottage located in a quiet cul-de-sac of a leafy established residential suburb at the foot of the Stellenbosch mountains. This is a great place to say for a weekend getaway to the Stellenbosch Winelands, or longer if you have time.
Wild Plum Cottage can accommodate up to 4 guests and has its own private entrance and street parking. It's quiet, spacious, secure and private. The cottage contains 1 bedroom with a queen-size bed, a shower en-suite, and a large open-plan kitchen, lounge (including sleeper couch) and dining area.
You have exclusive access to the entire cottage, as well as your own private patio garden. There is also a private backyard where the firewood is located and which is available for safe storage of any large items of guests' property, such as mountain bikes. Parking is available on the street outside.
The whole cottage has been recently refurbished with new appliances, repainted in neutral tones, and supplied with new linen, including luxurious Egyptian cotton bed linen and the softest, fluffiest bath towels. It has a wonderful light, plenty of space, and a calming ambiance with touches of luxury.
The artwork on the walls is made by your host, Ros Koch, who works from her studio next door and sells her work both locally and overseas. Please let us know if you are interested in any of the work as it is all available for sale. Alternatively, pop by next door and you might find her hard at work in her studio on one of her many projects.
Adding to the spaciousness is the fact that the cottage opens out onto a garden patio, shaded in summer by a wild plum tree, which lends its name to the cottage. This is an ideal space for relaxing outside, say with a glass of chilled white wine and a good book, as you listen to the sounds of birdsong and water trickling gently into the pool.
In the winter months, there is a lovely wood burner in the lounge and we provide all that you will need to get a roaring fire going, as well as extra blankets and hot water bottles should the need arise. Hot cocoa and candles make the place a very cozy space to be in the cold and blustery season.
To sum up, Wild Plum Cottage is ideal for: couples looking for a convenient base from which to explore the Winelands; a singleton seeking peace and quiet from the buzz of town life; a professional needing a base for a business trip stopover; or even a self-catering 'camp' for small families. Please bear in mind that there is no pool fence between the cottage and the pool.
