The setting of this choc-box getaway is picturesque. There is a lush and fertile valley floor stretching out from the outdoor living space, a small river which winds its way past the cabin and that deep blue tint of the Witzenberg mountains cutting the skyline beyond. There’s also the chance of spotting Springbok or Red Hartebeest roaming past the cabin during your stay.
The cabin is ideal for a family of four (although a fifth bed can be added on request), the ground floor is made up of the living area and a twin bedroom, while the main en suite is located on a mezzanine level. Up here the bedroom is decked out in percale linen, and the bathroom has a large shower. On the ground floor there’s a second bathroom with free-standing bath. Open plan to the lounge is a well equipped kitchen as well as a dining table.
The living space is tastefully furnished and cozy, with a fireplace to keep out the winter chill, with open beams and timber walls and floors. For summer, the cabin has air conditioning. If the heat of the day gets too much, guests can head down to the farm pool nearby for a cool off. Here there is also a braai area adjacent to the cabin, overlooking the river and valley.
Out to explore, there are plenty of gravel roads to head off on either by foot or bike, and hiking trails in the nearby mountains. Tulbagh itself is an interesting historical attraction and has galleries, restaurants and coffee shops and wine farms.
