"Cute cottage in magnificent setting"

"Wow! What a gorgeous location. We stayed at the cottage so had the whole place to ourselves, with the gorgeous patio and pool area looking onto the mountain range. The house is nicely presented, especially the bedrooms and bathrooms. It had everything we needed. In terms of improvements, I would suggest 2 x 2 seater couches for the lounge (the current ones look a bit worn) and a blind for the stable door for the loft upstairs. Would highly recommend this venue for a weekend away."
"Great accommodation."

"My husband and I stayed in the 2 sleeper flat and it was perfect. The unit is well equipped and was short of nothing.It's quiet, peaceful and the views are stunning. Management was very welcoming, friendly and helpful. They even assisted us with a map of activities in the area as well as all the opening closing times, as we stayed from the 30th Dec to 2nd Jan. If you are looking for accommodation in the Tulbagh area, you should definitely consider Raptor Rise."

"We had a wonderful stay....just too short. The cottage is comfortable and both bedrooms downstairs were perfect. The view is superb and we felt as if we were all alone out in the country. We will be back to try out the pool in warmer weather. "

"Thanks to Averil's attention to detail we had a great time. The house was fully equipped and we had everything we needed including rusks, milk in the fridge and firelighters and matches to make a fire. The weather wasn't great but the outside veranda gave us the protection we needed. At night we retreated into the cozy lounge and into luxurious linen for a good night's sleep. Highly recommended if you want to get away from it all."
