What a magical breakaway. One day felt like a week of holiday. Ewald and Coreen were amazing hosts and the entire experience was one of complete relaxation and rest! We are coming back again! Thank you for the experience.

Two nights of absolute bliss. We lazed in the hot tub, went for a hike, did a trail run, walked the farm flat, studied the stars, played with the resident cat, chased a “resident” mouse......
Will definitely go back when the souls need to be re-fueled!!!!

Really neat cottage. Would recommend "Hen of the Wood" as sheltered. Most amazing fynbos, walk and incredible hot tub. Wonderful hosts. Very thoughtful.

Lovely place to take a break from your hectic work life, and it is close to Cape Town.The owner Ewald welcomed us with rusks,a bottle of wine and a bottle of olives, such a lovely surprise.
We had a great time, relaxing in the Hot Tub, star gazing and taking early morning walks in nature.
The peace and quiet is what we needed. I will go back there any time.

Stayed a night in November 2020. Memorable sitting in outside hot pool drinking wine. Great place to chill. Very clean rooms. Will be going again definitely.
Friends owner will bring his own wine and olives to you if you ask him.

Overall, our stay was exactly what we were looking for - a peaceful, secluded stay in the middle of a forest. The hot tub under the stars was the perfect way to end the day. The unlimited supply of wood ensured that we were able to keep the water hot and have our braai!

The cool pool during the day was most welcome, as was the communal kitchen with the extra amenities.



A big thank you to our friendly host, Ewald, who went out of his way to make us feel welcome and to ensure that our needs were met.

A small town with plenty of character. Absolutely loved how close the wine farms were, and the little stalls on the side of the road had lots to offer. Food at the Botriver Hotel was also great value for money, with super friendly staff!
