Welcome to The Bothy,

The cottage is 12 km from town, 8 of which are on a dirt road. 4x4/high clearance definitely advisable as private access is via a dirt road dipping through a dry river bed twice. The cottage is a short distance from the 200 year old Cape Dutch farmhouse and wagon house (currently being restored) and faces up a valley with a firepit overlooking the kloof. The cottage is a former farm labourer's cottage and has just finished being renovated. Access to hiking and mountain biking trails directly from the cottage.

The cottage compromises one bedroom with a queen size bed and 1 bathroom with a shower.

Please note that it is a Karoo farm and can experience extremes of weather conditions. There is a resident bat colony which is housed in an external bathouse - they are an endangered species and keep the mosquito and insect population to a minimum, however please do not be surprised to see one flying inside if one is not careful to keep doors and windows closed at night. Nearby is a second, private cottage facing away from the Bothy

Please note that there is around 9km of dirt road to access the cottage, much of which is on a main farm road artery however there are often corrugations so we strongly recommend guests have a high clearance vehicle.

The grounds of the cottage are being worked on now with various succulents and hardy fruit trees being planted.
