          After a long journey we were welcomed and shown to our very neat and comfortable cottage. Dinner, a three-course-meal, was absolutely delicious. We enjoyed our stay. Thank you for your warm hospitality.

          Very hospitable family who did not hesitate to do their utmost to make us comfortable. Delicious food provided for our supper. Heaters and air conditioning which kept us warm during the cold winter night in the Free State. Would go back and back and back!

          Truly a special place!! Accomodation is top notch, with a luxurious bath. The food is five star - we had a three course meal worthy of a big city resturant. And the service is impeccable!! Highly recommended ☺
