The Herb Cottage

Sleeps 5 In the Mountains Self Catering

Tucked away in the beautiful green Magoebaskloof valley is The Herb Cottage, waiting to welcome you...


... A place that will soothe your soul – set amongst indigenous forests, where the sound of the crystal clear river will be your constant companion. Relaxing at the plunge pool on the verandah you may be lucky to see the endangered Samango monkeys playing in the trees nearby, or an elusive bush buck. You will be surrounded by a wonderful selection of birds and butterflies. Here is a place that you can really relax and forget about the city stress.
