Our time spent on an apple and pear farm with walks and dams to swim in, was awesome, not least because it's such a short drive from Cspe Town, but a world away. Very peaceful, charming, rustic. Elke is warm and welcoming.
We had such a lovely time from start to finish. The surroundings were breathtaking, even the ride to the farm was such a great experience. We thoroughly enjoyed our everyday walks on the farm and that we could explore the beautiful surroundings. The cottage was equipped with everything we could need and was received perfectly clean and in order. If there were any inquiries, Elke was just a phone call away. We enjoyed traveling to the surrounding markets and attractions in the area, it was close enough to everywhere we wanted to be. Without second thoughts, we will definitely return to Oak Lane.
Lovely location, off the beaten track in a quiet tranquil valley Cottages are very basic, have not been refurbished since the 70's. Has almost everything you need. Our unit only had a bath but there are showers and separate bathroom facilities which are more modern. I think the price is a little high considering how dated the accommodation is. None the less was good enough and had a lovely stay. One note for cyclists, the MTB trail is no longer accessible from this location, it is a few km away at back 2 basics camp and is really an enjoyable ride for all levels. I did enjoy the contactless check in and out
It has been a long time since our last visit to Oak Lane Cottages so there was an element of nostalgia to our stay. The cottage, Braeburn, was much the same as we remembered it, nestled in a secluded spot on the property along with sister cottage, Rosemarie with a shared braai area. Fortunately no one had booked Rosemarie so we had the place to ourselves. Note to self: book with friends or check that the cottage is free to avoid sharing the braai area with strangers. The little veranda provides a great parking off spotlight relaxing view down a gentle slope dominated by two magnificent oak trees. The cottage inside is basic but all we needed for the weekend. The only minor issues we had were a temperamental gas water heater (seems to be a thing with gas water heaters) and a fridge that seemed to have forgotten how to turn off. Overall impression: great value, old school, basic but comfortable, close to some of the best mountain biking trails in the western cape. We will be back. …
The location is absolutely beautiful. The property is nestled between trees, and the it is really scenic. Beds were very comfortable and the unit was clean. Unfortunately, there was no shower in the unit and not enough hot water for three people to bath comfortably. Overall, the unit missed a homely feel, taking into consideration that it is a self-catering cottage. A bit overpriced compared to similar options in the area.
