This Cottage (Shebang) is ideal for either a couple or a family of four. The Main Bedroom is built with an open-plan configuration to the Lounge and Kitchen while the second Bedroom is a private room. Each bedroom has a separate entrance to the large bathroom (corner-bath and separate shower). The kitchenette is very well equipped.

The space
My place is close to Ficksburg Town.
Springwater Cottages are situated in a scenic valley, surrounded by Sandstone ridges. We are all about peace and quiet: we have stunning stars, the peace of nature and no noise pollution.

You’ll love my place because of the ambiance and the outdoors space. Our Cottages/Chalets are set against the backdrop of our sandstone mountain with a stunning view over our peaceful, Eastern Free State valley.
We are a working sheep farm so mechanical noises are minimal. The sheep do graze in the camp where the Cottages are - depending on the time of year. Elvis the ostrich has his home right in front of the Cottages. We have 3 families of jackal and they can be heard at night, calling to each other. The whole ambience is conducive to a pleasant time away from the hustle and bustle.
My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, and families (with kids).

Guest access
You are most welcome to walk wherever your eye can see. Walks are rustic and mostly exploratory by nature, varying from easy strolls to rather strenuous excursions up the mountain.
Mountain biking on our MANY back-roads are immensely popular.
Of course just sitting on your stoep/veranda and soaking up the peace is high on our personal favourite list ;-) Especially with a glass of wine during sunset while an easy fire is warming your soul.

Other things to note
We supply complimentary wood, for both the indoors woodstove and the outdoors braai/barbecue area.
The Cottage is very well appointed with cutlery, crockery and appliances.
We supply towels and best of all: the linen! Ember Down linen features on all beds. This is Pure Goose Down duvets and 400 Thread Count Egyptian Cotton.

Our water is straight from a spring in the mountains and arguably some of the best available. The catchment area of these springs are inaccessible to motorized transport which is excellent as modern farming has not polluted the catchment area with fertilizers or herbicides .

Free State, South Africa

We live in a small valley, about 8 by 10km. It is extremely peaceful here and due to a combined effort from all involved, we are seeing a slow return of many wildlife animals such as kudu, warthog, reedbuck and so forth.
Our birds of prey populations have increased tremendously as well.
The sandstone formations, bordering the valley makes for spectacular sunrises and sunsets.
