Waterfall farm has been occupied by the same family for 4 generations. This quaint stone cottage was the first house built on the farm in1902. It has recently been lovingly restored and renovated whilst keeping all its original charm.  The stone was originally brought from the village of Van Reenen by oxwagon and although there are now modern amenities to ensure comfort, the walls still stand untouched almost 120 years later. 

Situated half way between Johannesburg and Durban the cottage provides the perfect stopover for weary travelers or for those who prefer 'the slow trip' between departure point and destination. If you dream of expansive views in every direction, a gentle walk to the river and waterfall and absolute peace then this is your ideal destination.

And if after a lazy day you feel the need for some company and a delicious dinner the famous Oaklands Country Manor is a couple of kms away. 

The cottage has 3 double rooms (main en suite) and two bathrooms and would be ideal for a group or family. The kitchen is small but fully equipped and there is an enclosed braai area in the garden. There is also an open fireplace and heaps of wood to make it cosy on cold nights.

The Wilge River and the iconic waterfall after which the farm gets its name are a short walk away.  The river is well known as a fishing destination and some record catches have been made. 

For those who prefer a more energetic holiday our neighbours, Oaklands Country Manor, offer a host of activities from polo and riding to bike and walking trails. However, if its walking, swimming, fishing, birdwatching, reading and generally relaxing you are looking for then we have it all in abundance.

The cottage garden is fenced but there are big dogs elsewhere on the property so although I have no objection to guests bringing their pets it would be at their own risk.
