My husband and I enjoyed a lovely stay at the Bottlebrush cottage at Packwood over December.
We enjoyed being out in the countryside and away from the chaos of Plet and Knysna over season (the area is super for mountain bikers, walkers and trail runners as it borders the indigenous forest).
Bottle brush cottage is perfect for 2 with a comfortable living area downstairs and a large loft bedroom upstairs with a huge private wooden deck for braai’s and outdoor eating. There was a family staying in the large manor house next door to us but we didn’t even hear them which was great.
We especially loved the delicious farm fresh milk and butter that was left by Ilse – as well as our welcome dinner of chicken salad, fresh baked bread and farm cheese. The Packwood Pinot bubbly is also one of the best we have tasted!
When we arrived there were also lovely bath products left for us to use (bubble bath, shower gel and body cream) which was a thoughtful and appreciated gesture.
