THE DAM COTTAGE

Self-Catering Accommodation

Quaint, Comfortable, and Private


The most idyllic get-away-from-it-all self-catering cottage in the Midlands.
This private, secluded and secure home away from home is detailed with grey sandstone and bag-washed brickwork. You have your own panoramic view from the patio over the property’s private trout dam. This spotless two-bedroom cottage has been lovingly and immaculately finished. The wooden-beamed ceilings, cosy Jetmaster fireplace and marble-topped kitchen are complimented with antique furnishings throughout. Both rooms are en-suite. For the real romantics, the main bedroom also has a deep Victorian ball-and- claw bath. The quality bed linen is underpinned by dual-control electric blankets. Extra soft and warm blankets also make sure you stay cosy. The kitchen is completely equipped. There’s also a weber braai and free firewood.

“A hidden gem in the Midlands and we have already booked the next trip.”
