Vineyard Cottage is a cosy self-catering cottage, sitting high and proud in the centre of Darling, and offering a tranquil mood where one can just simply relax submerged by the comfort and ambience of the cottage and surrounds. Make this your base for exploring, or your anchor for relaxing, either way Vineyard Cottage is the place to stay.

This beautiful cottage is set in an elevated position; a small vineyard to the front gives one the sense of being in the winelands while the almond trees and olive grove add to that country feel. The front patio provides the perfect place for sundowners with a view as far as the eye can see.

In Room Facilities:

The kitchen is fully equipped for self-catering with a gas hob, oven, microwave, fridge-freezer, a washing machine, top quality appliances, and cutlery and crockery. The dining area contains a 6-seater dining table and chairs. The lounge boasts a comfy settee and 2 comfortable bucket chairs, a TV, a Hi-Fi, and a small selection of DVDs for your viewing. The lounge is ideal for relaxing with a book, listening to music or watching the afternoon matinee, and for those colder evenings there is a wood burner.

Area Information:

Darling is a small town in a farming area on the west coast region of the Western Cape, about 75 km from Cape Town.

By the beginning of the 18th century about 29 farmers lived in an area called Groenkloof and on one of these farms, Langfontein, Darling was founded in 1853. It was named after Sir Charles Henry Darling who came in 1851 to the Cape as Lieutenant Governor.

The Darling Museum shows the history of the town and the Darling creamery which was established in 1899 by two Swedish settlers, Nils Georg Moller and G. Threnstrom, and was closed in 1950. The museum also holds a collection of large agricultural machines. Darling is famous for its wildflowers and since 1917 the annual Darling Wildflower show is held by the Darling Wildflower Society, founded in 1915 by Mrs. Suzanne Malan and Mr. Frederick Duckitt of Waylands.[

Property Facilities:

To the side of Vineyard Cottage nestled under the almond trees is an enclosed patio complete with table and chairs for outdoors entertainment. There is a single carport and parking for a further 2 vehicles in the driveway. The cottage is fitted with an alarm system. Pets are welcome by arrangement.

Highly recommend this gorgeous cottage, which is very well designed, comfortably furnished and kitted out, with a lovely garden in a beautiful, tranquil setting. Particularly liked the sheltered braai area where we spent a memorable evening around the fire.

Superb. 5 out of 5

Vineyard Cottage was perfect for our quick visit to Darling. Beautiful views, well appointed and the wood-burning stove was a bonus. Also appreciated that we could bring our dogs along. Will definitely stay again if we ever visit the village with the darling name again!

Superb. 5 out of 5
