The Cottage

Camphor Tree cottage is conveniently located close to the Hoekwil village. The cottage is recently upgraded from an old derelict farmhouse dating back to the 1940’s where the walls are still half made from clay, so the cottages natural insulation is warm in winter and cool in summer.

There are many wonderful cycling routes straight from the cottages doorstep, horse-riding can be arranged & canoes are available for rent at R300 per day, as well as 2 x bicycles for rent at R300 per day hire per bike.

Interaction with guests

Jackson & myself will be on hand most of the time to assist with any difficulties or questions required.

The quaint village of Hoekwil is a mere 2km from the gate where you can enjoy breakfast on the stoep, sample the best cheesecake in South Africa and enjoy a freshly brewed cup of coffee all whilst observing the goings on of village life.
