Thank you once again for a very special time – the rain was magical and the company and chats so warm. Thank you for helping us make this dream a reality (while we’re young enough to enjoy it). Thank you for everything. All our love always, Sam and Carlos.

Thank you Bronwyn and Colin for such a memorable stay in your delightful cottages. We had everything we needed and enjoyed the company of your dogs on our walks. We will return to the UK at the beginning of April with lots of photographs and very fond memories of this lovely valley. Patricia and John.

Had three fantastically relaxing days – loads of sleep – caught one fish. Took a lot of photos. Jock guarded the house for us and went fishing. Bronwyn and Colin have apiece of paradise. We’ll be back. Brian and Di.

Was awesome! Thank you. Lisa and Matthew.

Hi Bronwyn, What a brilliant place you’ve got there! We enjoyed it immensely, thank you so very much.Thanks, Johan.

Julle het ‘n pragtige, besonderse plek hier en dit op ‘n baie smaakvolle manier ‘mak’, toeganklik en gerieflik gemaak. Die ligging, die natuur skoon, die stil rustigheid – alles is manna vir die siel. Baie dankie dat ons daarin kon deel. En, o ja, die voeltjies is alsoluut fantasies! Baie dankie vir alles, saam met jul vriendelike gas-vryheid. Johan and Elena

We arrived here after three nights in Tankwa staying at Varschfontein and three nights at Simonskloof near Montagu. Both very special places. We did not think we could be third time lucky with accommodation – but we were. Previous writers have said it all. Perhaps just to add that sitting on the stoop watching the evening sky darken behind the silhouette of old man Swartberg’s face and big tummy, with a glass of whatever make you happy in your hand, has to be a particularly contented moment. Dave and Sandy

Dear Bronwyn and Colin (and Jock), Thank you for a truly fantastic stay. Everything was perfect. We leave with our souls refreshed and ready to face the world again. It was the perfect place to stay before we make the move up to Joburg from Cape Town. We will be back soon. All the best. Ben and Kate

“Grond wat rus lewer ‘n goeie oes” Presies die plek om dit reg te kry. Jock, die stoep, hangmat riverroei, sundowners, kaggel in the kamer…subliem. Die enigste fout…ons het net vir een aand geboek! Volgende keer rus ons verder. Dankie Colin en Bronwyn. Cussie en Ilse
