Cob Cottage

Romantic 1 bedroom self catering Cottage, R980 per night, Bedding and towels provided.

The Cob Cottage lies in the valley against the cliffs on the far side of the valley and is tucked away and very private. It has a queen sized bed and very comfortable lounge.  The open plan kitchen is fully equipped with gas appliances for self catering guests.  There is a delightful rustic bathroom, half open to the sky, so you can lie in the bath and watch the eagles and stars overhead. There is solar power in the cottage for lights or you can use the paraffin lamps provided.

Please note that as we are in a World Heritage Site, we are unable to accommodate pets.

Check in is anytime from 2pm onwards, and check out by 10am. Guests are welcome to arrive earlier and leave later if you want to do walks, however please ensure you are out of your accommodation so that our team can start cleaning for the next guests.  Please note this is un-serviced accommodation, though for stays of four days or more we will organise to have the cottage cleaned and new linen and towels provided.Please make sure that you arrange this when you make your booking and before your arrival.

Thank you, we loved our stay and will defiantly be back soon for a complete reset of our mind, body and soul.


Cob Cottage is tranquility ‎at best.
Willem is very helpful and knowledgable.
We loved the peaceful night‎, clean cottage and awesome surrounds.


We had such a wonderful weekend and the silence out there was quite astonishing. Cob Cottage was perfect and we would definitely recommend it to friends. It was very special waking Rudi up on his birthday with an awesome view and a hot cup of coffee.

We did the hike to Cedar Falls on Saturday which was so beautiful and we found tracks of otter, warthog, lots of different deer, a small cat. We were also very lucky to see 2 pairs of Black Eagle.  I braved the cold water and jumped in one of the pools.

Saturday night was so clear we could have stayed out stargazing all night.

The bed and linen were wonderful, the bath was spectacular, yes we braved it in the cold air but the water was lovely and warm and all in all we wished we could have stayed a bit longer.


For years we have heard about Baviaanskloof and have been meaning to visit.

Although we only spent one night at the Cob Cottage it was defiantly worth the visit.

We will be back in the not too distant future.

The reception was great and we settled in very comfortably for a perfect evening under the stars.


We absolutely loved our stay at Cob Cottage and were so happy that we were supporting such a great initiative. The cottage is amazing and its setting just out of this world. Nobody around except nature and yet all the comforts one could need.

The file depicting its construction is fascinating and most informative . Well done to all.

We met Willem, who showed us around and advised us on everything we needed to know. He was most helpful and we regretted that we were only staying for one night…far too short.

Wishing you all well and we will certainly recommend your cottage to our friends.

We had a fantastic time at the Cob Cottage & are already planning when we can come visit the Just for 2!   We walked as far as the pools along the river which was a fantastic experience & the 1st of many hikes in the area I’m sure! As well as a 1st hike for me after many years of not being able to… A truely marvellous experience!  Thank you for making such a wonderful part of nature open for all to find it. 

 Willem was a wonderful host, telling us awesome stories & happy to answer any questions we had & very concerned when we returned home late. Loved the honey he harvests! & I don’t think we will ever forget Marta’s wonderful sour bread & roosterbrood, mmm delicious, took it all the way to Cape Town & shared with our friends before heading back to KZN.

Cob Cottage was a thumb-suck choice on the Internet & has so impressed us, we have told everyone we have spoken to. Thank you for creating such a special place like Cob Cottage in such a wonderful setting. We hope u have many years of success.
