Situated 5km from mid town Bonnievale, Blue Gum Cottage and Die Stal Cottage are a laid-back and family-friendly spot with two cottages spread along the banks of the Breede.
Die Stal Cottage is a tiny two-roomed abode also overlooking an enticing stretch of the Breede River. Other than a soft patch of green grass that’s understandably popular among its guests, there’s little else separating you from the water.
The cottage features one main ensuite bedroom with double bed, plus two single beds in the cosy, open living space. Access to the bathroom with shower is through the main bedroom, so the cottage is best suited for a young family, a couple or friends and family that don’t mind sharing.
Die Stal Cottage is situated next to the main farm house, but completely private. Ideal for fishing, canoeing, swimming and bird watching. From the covered deck with an underroof braai facility, you will experience breathtaking views of the lush cottage garden and ever-flowing river.
Blue Gum Cottage itself – a private and rustic cottage tucked, as the name suggests, in the shade of a giant old blue gum tree, mere steps from the water.
With two bedrooms and extra space in the living room, Blue Gum can sleep a maximum of nine guests – all linen and towels are provided. 2 En-suite bathrooms and a fully equipped kitchen & lounge with indoor fireplace. What’s more, there’s further space for a tent outside.
The liberal use of raw timber, reed and river pebbles results in a casual, simple and cool interior, while the stoep (with braai) offers welcome shelter from the elements.
