This large modern cottage in a quiet area in Smithfield, Free State is ideal accommodation for singles, couples and especially familes up to 6 people. Both B&B and self catering accommodation in one, the good quality beds, linens and towels, electric blankets, DSTV, generous sized full bathroom, kitchen/lounge and dining area provide eveything you need to have a comfortable nights stay.

The Bluegum Cottage is the new guest wing of the Garlic House, a beautiful old 18th century building and home of owner/artist Kitty Schneider. Set in a large private property with lots of secure off street parking, it lies in the quiet and peaceful area of Smithfield. It is far away from the sounds of traffic on the N6 artery (between Gauteng and East London) which passes through town. Privacy, peace and quiet ensure a good nights sleep.

There are 3 rooms, 2 bedrooms with queen size beds and another very large room with the kitchen/lounge/dining area and 2 single beds. One bedroom is upstairs with a large balcony with views all around Smithfield and our "mountain". Large windows provide lots of natural light and views into the organic farm-like garden.

There are 3 dogs and 4 cats on the property, so pets are only allowed with prior arrangement. There is a plunge pool for hot summer days and plenty of space in the garden for children to run around. There is excellent 4G cell phone coverage and a great restaurant/pub down the road with WIFI. I do make dinner for guests with prior arrangement. Cereals,tea and coffee are included in the accommodation price.

Smithfield has tennis courts, a very good golf course and a bowls club. There is a museum with a very old cannon named "Ou Griekie". There are quirky shops like a great second hand bookshop, Vintage Shop, Art Gallery and 3 restaurans.Smithfield and the surrounds are wonderful for cycling with brilliant fresh air and scenic routes. We are only 60km from the Gariep Dam with Game lodges and game drives available on route.
