Children can hold and interact with baby lambs (depends on season), or go swimming or kayaking on Mavela dam, walk on the farm, hunt for eggs in the chicken run, or you can relax at the cottage with boardgames, a large movie collection, DSTV Premium or relax with a good book.

We had a lovely stay at your cottage over the Midmar weekend! Accommodation was very comfortable. It was very quiet and in a beautiful location, the perfect place to rest.
