                              The cottage was lovely, it had everything we needed and enjoyed having full choice of DSTV Channels. The cottage was exceptionally clean considering there was a lot of ornaments etc…. The decor and attention to detail is beautiful.Would have preferred having the use of the aircons included in our accommodation price , coffee was old and the 3 Buddha idols in our particular cottage made us feel uncomfortable as Christians. We were not aware that they were there when we made the booking.

                              Our stay at Boho Cottage was so lovely. Boho is quaint and cute. All staff, esp. Joy and Marietjie are so very friendly and made us feel so at home.

                              I did not spend nearly as much time as I wanted to here. Despite proximity to a main road, the gorgeous avenue of plain trees welcomes you into the countryside peace of Dunning House immediately. The cottage I stayed in was esoterically decorated (which really appealed to me) airy, bright and peaceful and an absolute delight to wake to the sounds of the farmyard and look out over paddocks of sheep and goats, with little bunnies hopping about and chickens scratching away. The kitchen was spacious and had everything you could need the shower had great pressure. The staff are incredibly welcomin...
