Ek sal nerens anders bly as ek weer in Molteno kom nie. Die egpaar Stretton is uitsonderlike gashere.

Die kothuis is keurig en gesellig met alles wat 'n gas moontlik nodig kan hê.

I will not stay anywhere else if I come to Molteno again. The Stretton couple are exceptional hosts.

The cottage is neat and cozy with everything a guest could possibly need.

Baie lekker gebraai en 'n wyntjie gedrink by die kaggel.

Perfekte oorslaap plek vir ons op pad na ons eindpunt toe.

'n Hartlike welkom op 'n baie koue aand.

Ons is hartlik ontvang en het baie uitgesien om oor te bly. Die kothuis is volledig toegerus en goed ingerig om die koue te trotseer. Die kaggel was 'n wenner, so-ook die heerlike beddegoed wat ons knus laat slaap het.

A warm welcome on a very cold evening.

We were warmly received and were very much looking forward to staying. The cottage is fully equipped and well equipped to brave the cold. The fireplace was a winner, as were the lovely bedding that made us sleep cozily.

The best self-catering in Molteno.

Serviced, WiFi and DStv. Only great green garden in town and it's well looked after by the owner. Clean and neat with everything you need. Great for a base to cycle the district roads past all the farms in the area and some great hidden valleys.

Baie rustig en goeie verblyf.

Die kothuisie is netjies en mooi. Die gasvrou was vriendelik en hulpvaardig. Vir toekomstige reisigers, wees bedag daarop dat Molteno geen fasiliteite het nie (kos en winkels) berei dus voor daarvoor. Buiten daarvoor is dit 'n heerlike ooornagpunt op die reis.

Very peaceful and good accommodation.

The cottage is neat and beautiful. The hostess was friendly and helpful. For future travelers, be aware that Molteno has no facilities (food and shops) so prepare for that. Apart from that, it is a wonderful overnight stop on the journey.

Jenny was baie vriendelik en behulpsaam. Die kothuis was baie netjies en so mooi gemeubileer. Kompleet gevoel ons was in die middel van Engeland! Die omgewing is baie rustig en Jenny se tuin was pragtig. Ons het ons aandjie daar terdeë geniet. Sal dit beslis vir enigiemand aanbeveel.

More than expected ...

My wife and I have historical roots in Molteno ... hers with the van Zyl farm, Klipfontein and mine with the Lomax family, Ambrose, John and their father Arthur from Steynsburg. We have been back before for the sake of family memories and have not been disappointed. Jenny went out of her way to ensure that we had a good stay in her lovely and cosy cottage.
