A beautiful spot, in the Midlands, a home away from home. We were warmly welcomed by three beautiful dogs and Samke, who was such a delight and so very helpful. The Country House was spacious with loads of little spots to take in the amazing views. We loved the Kitchen Area and Braai area and the family room with the fireplace was a treat in the evenings. With the fresh midlands air and cosy rooms, keeping the promise of a good nights sleep after a busy day.

Our little family really enjoyed this cozy loft. Upstairs there were toys and books for our little girl. The bathroom and outside shower were heavenly and I just wanted to spend all my time there. The fire place added to the coziness especially on the colder days. The mountain views from the loft were amazing. Moreover, Di and her husband were really great hosts. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

We were so delighted to discover Little Fields, a real gem! The most beautiful cottages, so comfortable and tastefully put together. It was energizing to be there. The views are magnificent with the option to walk on the farm to the dam. Di is a wonderful host, very warm and helpful. We couldn't have wished for a more homely, beautiful place that is so conveniently placed. Our fist choice next time we are in the Midlands.

Was perfect for our 2-night stay with our two teenage kids, touring the surrounding area and having cosy evenings by the fire - we stayed in the 2-bedroom cottage, with one of the bedrooms an open plan converted loft space above the lounging area. A couple of hundred metres down a driveway and you could be in a remote country setting with idyllic views of rolling hills and cattle in meadows, not immediately obvious from the road. Attention to detail by the owners is superb and thoughtful - freshly baked muffins delivered at 08h00 on the dot each morning, fireplace already set up, cleanliness that relaxes you instantly and artistic decorative touches everywhere. The option of using an outdoor shower set in a lush green environment was a novel and fun experience. The property is set on the edge of a secure meadow with a small dam great for an outdoorsy experience within a controlled environment for adventurous kids. Definitely recommended. If anything, perhaps bring a small load of firewood to supplement their complimentary one. There are two cottages sited near each other one with a loft bedroom and the other with rooms on one level. Cottages ca be rented separately.
