It was very cold outside but there were multiple sources of warmth inside.

It was so beautiful there, we had a lovely time. Super relaxing and we were looked after well.

Exceeded expectations.

Whistling Bridge cottage provided us with an exceptional overnight stop on our journey up the N1. We were met by our friendly host, Kim, who showed us the way to the cottage along the farm roads and settled us into the very well-appointed cottage. The spacious accommodation was clean and very comfortable. Our only disappointment was that we were not staying longer. The padkos coffee and hot chocolate from the farm stall was our parting treat.

Lafenis vir my siel!

Ek het 'n wonderlike tyd gehad. Dit was net genoeg om my batterye te herlaai. Dankie dat ek in julle lieflike, gerieflike huisie kon oornag.

Rustige atmosfeer, luukse geriewe.

Pragtige omgewing, lieflike geriewe met alles wat nodig was. Heerlik vir 'n wegbreek maar ook gerieflik naby aan N1 vir vinnige oornag. Sal dit weer gebruik!

Het potensiaal, maar is erg verwaarloos.

Die plek het soveel potensiaal, maar is ongelukkig erg verwaarloos. Daar is geen sitplek in die tuin om die karoolug te geniet nie. Ons het in 'n kamer in die huis gebly. Daar is geen koffiestasie, yskas, of selfs handewasseep in die kamer nie. Die gesamentlike kombuis het ook nie eens 'n mikrogolf nie. Die kombuistoerusting wat wel daar was, was ook buite werking. Die kamer en die badkamer was skoon en netjies.

Has potential, but is badly neglected.

The place has so much potential, but is sadly neglected. There is no seating in the garden to enjoy the carol air. We stayed in a room in the house. There is no coffee station, refrigerator, or even hand soap in the room. The shared kitchen doesn't even have a microwave either. The kitchen equipment that was there was also out of order. The room and the bathroom were clean and tidy.

Heerlik op die plaas gebly.

Lekker gebly nadat my vrou oor haar skok gekom het. Donker bosse, verlagte huis, enigste gaste het alles spokerig laat voorkom tot ons alles in perspektief beskou en ontspan het.

Lovely stay on the farm.

Nice stay after my wife got over her shock. Dark woods, dilapidated house, only guests made everything appear ghostly until we put everything into perspective and relaxed.

'n Lekker plek om 'n rustig te wees.

'n Oulike plek, maar dit was so bietjie moeilik om te vind. Daar was van die beddens wat troeteldierhare nog op gehad het. Die huis is egter redelik goed ingerig en ruim. Ons het die besonderse stilte op die plaas waardeer.

A cute place, but it was a bit hard to find. Some of the beds still had pet hair on them. However, the house is quite well appointed and spacious. We appreciated the exceptional silence on the farm.

Will definitely be back, it's got a great vibe and Angeline and Kim were great.

We had a comfortable stay and the team were very helpful and responsive. We loved the farm dam pool and the lovely old homely house with character. My only complaint was that the farm dog spent a great deal of the night barking at nothing, which kept us awake, and we felt a little vulnerable as the door to our room wouldn't close or lock at all.

Goed uitgerus vir die reis Stellenbosch toe.

Lekker gebly, lekker stil en rustig en die ontvangs deur Kim was baie gasvry. Sal dit beslis aanbeveel as 'n oornagstop en selfs vir 'n bietjie langer as een nag.

Wat 'n pragtige oase, weggesteek net langs die N1.

'n Ruim kothuis wat pragtig toegerus is met meer as wat mens nodig het. Dit is perfek om by oor te slaap langs die langpad, maar sal selfs 'n wonderlike wegbreek-bestemming maak. En om alles net beter te maak is dit troeteldiervriendelik. Julle sien my beslis weer.

What a beautiful oasis, tucked away just off the N1.

Rustig en bekostigbaar.

Sou aanvanklik tussen 16h en 17:30 incheck, het toe motor probleme opgedoen en het eers teen 23:15 arriveer. Angeline was op haar pos en ongelooflik behulpsaam selfs daardie tyd van die nag! Groot waardering.

Lekker ontspan na 'n lang dag op die pad.

Ons het oornag by Whistling Bridge Cottage met ons twee skaaphonde. Kim en Angeline is absoluut fenomenaal. Angeline was baie behulpsaam en het gesorg dat ons heerlik eet deur middel van die braaipakkies wat hulle teen 'n ekstra koste verkoop. Die huis is ten volle toegerus, baie gemaklik, skoon en netjies. Ons het heerlik gebraai en lekker geslaap.

We had a great barbecue and slept well.

Pragtig, alles wat nodig is, goed ingerig. Heerlike kuierhuis.

Was middelpunt vir ons van Bloemfontein en ander van Somerset-Wes om naweek saam te kuier. Alles soos op die foto's. Lekker kaggel, dankie vir al die vragte gratis hout. Goed toegerus, alles wat nodig is. Lekker stapplek op die plaas en plek vir ons skaaphonde om te hardloop. Nie ver van die hoofpad nie, maar tog voel mens diep in die natuur. Personeel vriendelik en behulpsaam. Privaat, maar veilig gevoel. Beslis die moeite werd.

Well equipped, everything needed. Nice place to walk on the farm and place for our sheepdogs to run. Not far from the main road, yet one feels deep in nature. Staff friendly and helpful. Private but safe feeling. Definitely worth it.
