We spent a very pleasant night at Laragh with our Namibian friends in adjoining cottages. Everything was just perfect. The attention to detail evident. We loved the lay out of the garden - almost to form secluded "garden rooms"! - We will be back for a longer stay. Thanks Jenny and Norman.

We enjoyed the regular visits from the owner's dogs. We loved the fire place inside the unit. The garden is beautiful with big trees and various birds. Thanks for all the recommendations on what to do in the village.

This is the second time that we have stayed at Yellowwood Cottage and, as before, it was a most enjoyable stay. The cottage is very spacious and everything is provided for, even some fresh milk for that first cup of tea as well as some rusks. We can certainly strongly recommend the venue.

We were very happy with the cottage. It was super clean and spacey with a very comfy bed and pillows. The shower was lovely and hot. Beautiful patio with a gorgeous view. There was everything u would need for self catering . What amazing hosts . So friendly and willing to help with anything you would need. We were on a loaded motorcycle, so they kindly helped us out with supplies we couldn’t bring along . An amazing place and stay and we will definitely be going back very soon Bill and Barbie from villiersdorp

We had a lovely stay at this cozy, neat and well-equipped cottage. The electric blankets and fireplace work wonders on those freezing winter nights. It is ideal for a family with two kids or two couples. The hostess, Jenny, was very helpful and accommodating.
