We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at RiverStill Guest Farm this weekend. The River Cottage and Stroh House is perfect for big families. Our hosts were amazing and the property is well kept. We loved the river (you can swim at the swim spot or paddle down the river in a boat), lush garden and the peace and quiet. We also saw a huge variety of birds and other animals. We will definitely be back for a longer stay. Loved it!
This place is so tranquil and peaceful. If you are looking for a place to just break away from everything and everyone, this is it! Kayaks provided hours of fun. Best experience and so many memories made!
We recently stayed at Riverstill in Brian's cottage and had the most relaxing get away. The accommodation is very clean as well as the grounds. The stream running through is beautiful. If you want a place to go to to get away from the stresses of life then Riverstill is the place to go to with no cellphone reception, fresh air and the beautiful bush!
Wonderful place. Beautiful surroundings. Able to let the children roam around. Cottages are rustic but comfortable. Dogs are child friendly. Host is truly lovely. Bring own firewood firelighters food.
The author Herman Charles Bosman describes the ambience of this magical place most aptly..."There is no other place I know that is so heavy with atmosphere, so strangely and darkly impregnated with that stuff of life that bears the authentic stamp of South Africa". We were able to completely relax and unwind in this natural haven and tune in with the rhythms of nature. Added to this was the truly genuine hospitality and friendship shown to us by Jacques at Riverstill, Santa & Egbert at Groot Marico and all the other lovely people we met there. We were so impressed by the incredible work done by the Bosman society in creating the Bosman terrain which we found tremendously interesting. To conclude, for us, the wilderness and bushveld beauty of Riverstill with its abundant birdlife, riverine woodland and star studded night skies was a gentle reminder of who we truly are.…
