Grootwaterval Self-catering Cottages

Grootwaterval self-catering cottages


Our two rustic cottages are renovated labourers' houses with an old fashioned warm atmosphere of oil lamps and candles. We do have a solar system for lighting but most of our guests prefer the oil lamps.

The kitchens are fully equipped with gas-fridges, gas-burner, crockery, pots and pans. Beddings and towels are also provided – just bring your own food.

Both cottages have large, covered stoeps, an ideal space to relax and breathe in the silence.

The houses are set well apart to give you privacy.




Ribbok Cottage



Ribbok Cottage (sleeps 4 - 5 persons)

This cozy cottage consists of an open plan kitchen with an old but working wood stove, a small living room with a sleeper couch, two bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other with single beds, each with en-suite shower.

On the stoep you have braai facilities and huge old acacia trees give you shade from the summer heat.

If you are looking for a swim, the natural spring water dam is close for you to cool off.



The old woodstove is in working condition, a rustic friend during the winter
