A charming cottage set beside a swimming pool in a large indigenous garden on a sugar cane farm - ideally situated to explore the scenic coastal area of Zululand. There is ample accommodation and space for a family with children or for couples looking for a relaxing getaway in a tranquil environment with abundant birdlife. The three-bedroom cottage is fully equipped for self-catering and takes its inspiration from the colonial farm houses of yesteryear.

The space
The cottage takes its inspiration from the colonial farmhouses of yesteryear and has been lovingly pieced together after years of hunting country demolition yards, auction houses and junk shops for authentic building materials from the past.

Guest access
Guests are free to roam the large garden, walk the dogs along the farm roads and access the WiFi available in the main farmhouse.
