Another beautiful week spent at the cottage, but this time in summer.

I thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor shower, warm evening braais on the deck under a canopy of trees and sunset strolls through the apple trees. Rob and Andrea are wonderful hosts. Words cannot do Brookelands Stone Cottage justice.

Perfect place for rest and relaxation.

The cottage is charming - the highlights were the deck area with the stream, beautiful trees and an abundance of plants and the outdoor shower. We loved our stay!

We only stayed one night but fell inlove with this little cottage. It is so beautifully done and had fresh roses dotted all around the place. Loved the outdoor shower and the deck. Highly recommend!

Rob is very welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed. The stone cottage is very beautifully placed beneath a canopy of trees and with the stream flowing by the side of the cottage, it is the perfect place to put your feet up and relax.

The indoor fireplace keeps it nice and cozy and the outdoor fire gives it a lekker farm feel. It has an enormous bath which is amazing! You can freely walk around on the farm and enjoy all the different trees and fynbos flowers.
