About The Aloe Cottage

The Aloe Cottage is situated on a working farm between Swellendam and De Hoop Nature Reserve. You can experience real country living while watching the everyday activities that happen on the farm.

      Hostess was very welcoming and friendly. Viewing the wild buck at sunset was great.

      We loved staying here and will definitely come back. Facilities were all that we needed and more, hosts were very warm and friendly, location was great for access to the de Hoop nature reserve and the bird life here was exceptional not to mention springboks within metres of the veranda.

      All round good experience, from tranquility gazing at the rolling hills and nearby Springboks to being part of the daily farm activities. Was such a treat to go and fetch fresh eggs for breakfast. Marthie looked after us very well, providing wood for the fire, farm fresh milk and delicious rusks. The cottage was nicely set up and comfortable and clean. We will definately go back.

      We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It's quiet, clean and peaceful. Great hospitality and wonderful fresh eggs and milk daily. Springbok grazing on our doorstep. If you like the farm life this, is the place to go and relax. We'll be back!
