360 on 62 offers self-catering farm cottage accommodation with 360-degree mountain views on a working farm just 7 kilometers outside the charming village of Montagu, in the Little Karoo on the R62. A mere 2 hours drive from Cape Town brings one through the stone portals of Cogmanskloof to the Little Karoo and the charming village of Montagu. This historic village lies in a fertile valley enclosed by the Swartberg and Langeberg mountain ranges.
The restoration process of the cottages was executed with great sensitivity and attention to detail in order to maintain an authentic flavor. They are simplistic but well-equipped with linen, crockery, and cutlery, as well as a gas cooker and microwave for indoor cooking. Each cottage has its own braai facility on its patio. The cottages do not have TVs to distract you from the sounds of birdsong, or the call of jackals and foxes. Spotted eagle owls and Cape eagle owls are handsome predators and are often seen and heard at the cottages.
