Delightfully comfortable, Crab Apples AA Superior Cottages are set on the edge of the Kilgobbin Forest and the Dargle Valley Conservancy. Generations of visitors have experienced the soul-restoring reassurance that comes with being surrounded by the beauty of creation. The forest is filled with ancient trees, animals and over 200 species of birds. <br /><br />Retreat to one of our three thatched, self-catering cottages furnished with every comfort. The spacious, open plan living area, leads onto a sun deck. Each bedroom has a queen-sized bed and the loft, just up above the living area, has two single beds, so is ideal for the children. There is an antique cast iron Victorian tub and shower in the en-suite bathroom. The heated pool, braai and entertainment area are available for you to use. Fur-children are permitted by arrangement.<br /><br />Our delicious spring water, from the taps, is drinkable. We have also invested in a generator to ensure that should Eskom load shed, you will enjoy the luxury of a continuous electricity supply. There will be no lights out during your stay with us. Enjoy our free Wi-Fi.

"Relaxing environment"

"The owners Helen and Barend made our stay unforgettable. We felt part of the family right from the start, the cottage was tastefully decorated, the rooms cosy despite a distinct nip in the Midlands air and the environment perfectly suited to feeling calm. I was able to be active, taking the 10km MTB track while my son could just chill out in the beauty of the reserve near the homestead."

"There are no words which can actually express the absolute sense of 'peace &amp; well being' I experienced during my stay at Crowned Eagle Cottage.I could just as well have been perched on the edge of an Enchanted Forest with only the magical creatures therein for company...The Cottage exceeded even my high expectations, and the warm welcome and extra touches such as the Card &amp; Flowers /Hot Chocolate / Tea / Coffee &amp; Rusks were an absolutely delightful surprise.Thank you so much for the most memorable, tranquil and truly amazing time I spent in your Garden of Eden. We will be back - again and again!Hugs &amp; WagsCarol &amp; Roxy xoxoxo"

"This is just to report to you that we had an absolutely super time at Crab Apple cottages. We had friendly greetings from the owners and their pets. A letter, a vase of roses and a chocolate greeted us in the unit.The unit was very clean and we were provided with toiletries in the bathroom and detergents in the kitchen. The units are serviced and a laundry facility provided. The farm itself is absolutely in a stunning part of the country and the scenery is beautiful.The cottages are only about 15 minutes out of Howick where you can purchase anything. Definitely will return and seriously recommended."
"The Best"

Justin, South Africa
"Crab Apple Cottages was definitely the "best for last". As the last place on our holiday, Crab Apple Cottages left us wanting to extend our stay longer than just one night. We felt welcomed from the first meeting with Barend and left feeling like family after watching Helen and her horses. The cottage was warm and had everything we needed. The small details noticed and will always be remembered. Next time we will stay for at least three days."

"What an awesome special little piece of paradise! We had a thoroughly relaxing stay at the beautiful Crowned Eagle thatched cottage. The well-equipped and very private cottage has a stunning view over the valley and forest, gorgeous fireplace and even underfloor heating! Plus extra touches everywhere, from the chocolates on our pillows, fresh roses and beautiful card welcoming us in the bedroom - to name a few - proof of how much our warm and friendly hosts, Helen and Barend, care about everyone who stays with them. : )"
