We had the most divine weekend at Rusty Gate! The cottage was so beautifully done and extremely well equipped. The mountain trails are beautiful and very well marked, and lots for kids to explore and enjoy too. Thanks, we'll be back.

The cottage was superbly finished and equipped, and nicely laid out. We had to spend our time indoors because of heavy rains, and it was comfortable, also with a fireplace. Would like to go back there with friends to enjoy the quiet surroundings, and outdoor activities.

Perfect breakaway. We did a business breakaway and strat session. The Pool room was a hit for socializing. We were a team of 15 that attended a 3 day break away. Big enough dinning area around the braai, kitchen for cooking magic and are for strat session. After a day of working we relaxed in the pool area or a Mountain run. Perfect for families, friend weekends or group functions like bachelorettes. We be visiting again for sure.

It doesn’t get better than this! A backdrop over looking the beautiful fynbos valleys, fully kitted house (they really thought of everything), big dam filled with clean mountain water, hiking trails which the route we took, took us to a waterfall and super friendly hosts that make you feel right at home. I can’t think of a better getaway than the Rusty Gate.
