We were married at Boschendal and spent a night here as part of our 1 year anniversary. This is our second time staying in these cottages and we just love them. They are equipped beautifully - from Le Creuset appliances, to lovely linen. The bathroom is stunning! We also loved the "stoep" area. Will continue to come back to this...

These self catering units are beautiful. Loved the design, decor and available utilities. We will go back but we'll be better prepared, if you have a car or not the closest convenience store is about 20kms away. Electricity was erratic (lost a rating) Go with friends, enjoy the hikes, mountain bike routes, wine, food etc Loved it loved it loved...

We stayed two nights in one of the Orchard cottages with two bedrooms. The cottage as such was very nice and clean, there's even a small pool that is shared between the cottages. In the evening there are security guards around making sure you're safe. Waking up in the morning, taking in the breathtaking view of the surrounding mountains makes...

The cottages cant be faulted but reception was semi chaotic, with a bunch of people who appeared to be falling over each other We were told that the key for our cottage was at the unit which is a couple of kms away When we got there we discovered that the keys were in fact at reception. How is this...

We spent one night at the Orchards Cottages in order to attend a wedding held at Boschendal. Our only regret is that it was only one night. The accommodation (2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms) was wonderful and the setting perched above green lawns was fantastic. After a post-party good rest, we enjoyed picnic breakfasts delivered to our cottage in the serenity...

We stayed at the retreat cottages for two nights. We had previously stayed at the orchard cottages but couldn't get in. These were just as stunning save each two bedroom rd cottage had one bathroom per cottage. Not ideal if traveling with friends. Other than this the place was magnificent. Beds perfect, decor - wow, gardens further wow and service...

We have been coming to Orchard Cottages for many years and have already booked for January 2018. They are incredibly comfortable and tastefully decorated with amazing views of the surrounding mountains. I really can not recommend this beautiful place enough. We love it.

The surroundings are beautiful and the cottage seemed to look nice. Laundry service works good. There are ants in the cottage. The door does not work like it should. Plumbing is bad. The door to the bathroom has obviously been destroyed by some reckless person and was not fixed. There was a walk to get to the breakfast which was...

Good day, Thank you for the informative feedback. We hope you took it up with the team during your stay as we prefer to sort out issues like this immediately. However, we will follow up on the specific cottage that you stayed in and will make sure it’s in good condition. Many thanks, Boschendal team
