River Cottages
Caracal, Mongoose and dassie

Further up the valley are the three River Cottages, which are nestled between the Kloof River and the hillside.

The River Cottages are a convenient walk from the dam and the secret forest, just over the hill. Caracal Cottage is situated at the top, with a large kitchen,  an indoor and outdoor braai area. For bigger groups, book the Mongoose Chalet (sleeps 2) or the full River Cottage offering, which includes Dassie Chalet (sleeps 2).  The tranquillity of this offering is unparalleled. The River Cottages are perfect for couples or families looking for an intimate getaway.
