Absolutely amazing. We all had a relaxing time and enjoyed the fishing. Caught 2 decent sized trout. The facilities are some of the best I've been to and the host really goes out of his way to make sure everything is taken care of.

What a little piece of heaven. Such a beautiful and serene setting. My husband loved the fishing, my daughter fell in love with the sheep and i got to do as little as possible. The cottage is well equipped and warm. We stayed for a week and went home refreshed.

Beautiful location and great hosts! The cabin is well equipped, tastefully decorated and very clean. Lots of lovely extras for the kids like toys, treats and dvds! Kids loved all the animals. Couldn't have asked for a more peaceful and tranquil setting. We will definitely be back.

A blissfully peaceful, beautiful chalet in an idyllic setting.

There is nothing more we could have asked for and we were very happy with everything.

The early evening call of the jackal and crowned crane completed an already perfect ambiance.

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.
