Would have appreciated a blow dryer in the room and possibly more carpets as the floors were freezing cold. We got the impression that the cottage we stayed in had been broken into as there was the bare minimum in the cottage and the door showed signs of break ins. We also arrived late in the evening and the pathway to the cottage had no lights and we had a tough time walking to our cottage on a very uneven pathway in the dark. I sadly ruined a brand new pair of shoes that I wore to the wedding. Had I known I would've changed into takkies.

We enjoyed our stay in Waterwoods. The accommodation was very clean and neat. We arrived late and the person at the gate was friendly and helpful to ensure we are all settled. The firewood we could order was an extra bonus as it was an extra cold weekend!

Waterwoods is truly a special place. We stayed in the log cabin, which was perfectly rustic and very charming. We so enjoyed the spectacular views and friendly staff. A special thanks to their onsite security, who went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. Jeanette, you run a fantastic venue; we will be back!

We were met by Jeanette Pez who checked us in and made sure we were happy with everything. Despite the lockdown having harmed the tourist industry , we found our stay very enjoyable with our pet Xeba a German Shepherd female also very comfortable in the large thatch cottage. Plenty of safe walks for the 3 of us. Jeanette allowed us to postpone our visit on two occasions so thanks again Jeanette thanks again Waterwoods we will be back soon

My son and our German Shepherd escaped for the weekend! And we couldn't have asked for anywhere better to escape to. Jeanette was an amazing host and the peace and quiet of the farm was exactly what we were looking for. Beautiful long walks around the dam, through the forest, visits to the horses and donkeys, heaven! Thank you Jeanette for an amazing weekend. We will definitely visit again soon.
