Excellent cottage! We were looking for a view and what a brilliant view it was! Great location, great hosts, great comfy beds. Loved the beautiful gardens and mossy areas with the silver mist! Thank you for receiving us on such a short notice Frans and Miream! God bless

Very quiet and spacious property with amazing views. Frans is unfailingly accommodating and is a great communicator. We had a superb long stay in the mountains at Diggers' Rest Lodge. No option for laundry on site however, which was the only down side as it is a very secluded spot and a lengthy drive into town.
