Visitors Book

  • Cob Cottage was above all our expectations – it really blew us away!! – next time we need to spend more time there, 1 night was just not enough!  Willem and Marta had everything 100% under control and all catering requirements were met perfectly – despite Marta’s fathers passing.  The early morning  hike to the “running man” painting was both educational and entertaining – really enjoyed Willems commentary about life in the kloof!

  • We had a wonderful stay at Just for Two, it was really very special. We are about to have our first child in July and our trip was a last getaway as just the two of us (or two and a half really!). We particularly enjoyed our baths under the stars and the loo with the view! I think you have done the cottage beautifully, just the right mix of simplicity and comfort. I’ve already recommended your place to several friends and relatives.

     

  • We must compliment the staff you have working there they made us feel right at home and we will recommend the venue to anyone who is passing through Baviaans. Thanks for the wonderful venue we really enjoyed the stay over.

  • We had a super time at your farm.   We'd travelled thru the Kloof on a very hot day and were so relieved to find this little piece of heaven.  The hospitality (and cool dam) on arrival was perfect.  Martha and Willem are excellent hosts and the food is brilliant. We went for the marathon hike to the waterfall early the next morning and it was an experience we will never forget.  We're so happy we decided to make the effort. We'd love to come back to visit again and spend a little longer there next time.

  • We absolutely loved staying at the Cedar Guesthouse. You have a beautiful place out there and it was so wonderful to be so far away from phones and shops and the noise and stresses of daily like. It really felt like a retreat both from and into the world. We read lots and walked and swam in the river and did yoga on the stoep. We had a fire every night and gazed at the stars. Bliss. I have a pretty stressful job at the moment and have returned to work today feeling totally rejuvenated. I only need to close my eyes to be back in the secret gorge and waterfall.  Thanks so much for everything. Wilhem did a great job of looking after us too.

  • We loved our stay on your farm and in the Cedar Guest House.   Willem was a really great host and we enjoyed learning more about the farm through what was written in and on the house.  The Baviaanskloof is a real treasure and we tried to explore as much as we could. It was awesome.

  • Many thanks, we had a very enjoyable stay in your cottage. While the cottage is basic but tastefully decorated, the solitude provided ample opportunity for reflection and relaxation. We thoroughly enjoyed the falls hike on Sunday, though weren’t brave enough to swim.

  • We had a great time on your farm, it was  a dream come true. 

    Willem and Martha were excellent hosts and went out of their way to make our stay pleasant.

    The cob house was great - the insulation was perfect and the cold never got to us.

    We walked all over the property, exploring the old irrigation network, walking up the valleys and marveling at the incredible beauty of the surrounding mountains as it constantly changes with the movement of the sun.

    We plan to be back with friends.



  • Thank you so much for an incredible stay at Cob Cottage. We had a really special time and enjoyed every moment of the stay.  As an Architect myself I really enjoyed reading your book on how it was all built and wish more people could be as insightful and sensitive to the people and the context as you have been - Well done! We really loved the walks, swims, stars, bread and everything about Cob Cottage and will def be recommending it to everyone. Once again please send our thanks to everyone involved - We had a really special time.

  • We had a great stay at Cob Cottage.  It was my first visit to the area and was overwhelmed with its beauty and character.  We were fascinated by the history of the Cob Cottage project and the other accommodation.  It must have been some effort to renovate, build and develop in such a remote area.  We also attempted to go to the falls and were a little surprised at the tough 5 hour hike there and back.  Unfortunately it was still quite cold and we stopped short where you have to wade through the river between the cliffs… maybe next time.  We wish you well and thank you for sharing this awesome place with us.
