Strawcroft Cottage is situated in a quiet corner of a farm at the top of Van Reenen's Pass, just 9 km off the N3. It overlooks Nelsons Kop and the Tanjiesberg with the Wilge River in the valley below.

The cottage sleeps six people in three double bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms. There is a large open-plan lounge, dining room and kitchen area. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is a built-in braai on the covered verandah.

The cottage is built of wheat straw bales which are an eco-friendly, renewable resource. It has excellent insulation properties giving the cottage a cosy, welcoming feel. For those who enjoy their creature comforts, the cottage has an open fireplace and there are eco-heaters in all of the bedrooms. Hot water bottles are also supplied.

There are four definite seasons at Van Reenen. Summers are delightfully warm without being excessively hot, and winter mornings usually start with icy frost on the ground and the occasional snowfall.

"We stayed over at Strawcroft cottage for just one night and would definitely consider it for a longer stay. The cottage is comfortable and well furnished, even down to decent cutlery! The staff was friendly and helpful and despite the rain and mist, we enjoyed the lovely atmosphere."

"Ons het die nag baie geniet. Heerlik vuur gemaak en voor die kaggel gesit. Die uitsig is pragtig en die maan was vol. Die enigste kommentaar is die paaie wat sleg is! Per motor is die klein paadjie na die cottage regtig amper onbegaanbaar. Kan julle iets daaraan doen? Dit sal die waarde baie verhoog."
