About Mulberry Cottage (60 km From Graaff-Reinet)

Originally a labourer's cottage, Mulbery Cottage was upgraded to a manager's cottage by Denyl Kingwill, Judi's grandfather, after which it was unused for 20 years before being renovated into a cosy, comfortable, self-catering, private accommodation with electricity, nestled beside the Buffels River.

The cottage has 2 bedrooms, with 6 single beds; a lounge (with fireplace); dining area; kitchen with cooking gas facilities. A unique atmosphere can be created at night, with the option of lighting paraffin lamps. The cottage is north facing, making the rooms and living areas cosy in winter. A braai area, with an abundant supply of dry wood, has been added at the end of the stoep which has been enjoyed by many.

Visitors, especially children, love to explore the safe environment and wide open spaces.

In winter the landscape is transformed as a blanket of pristine white snow covers the farm. Hot chocolate before a roaring fire is essential after a brisk walk.

We consider it a privilege to be able to share the beauty of what we have.

There is also a second guest cottage, Charlton House, which is available for guests......

Charlton House....tranquility at its best. Situated near the Sneeuberg mountains, only 64 km from Graaff-Reinet, "Grootplaats", a working farm consisting of merino sheep, angora goats and an Nguni cattle stud, has been in the D.P. Kingwill family since 1927. It is here that third generation owners John and Judi Butterworth welcome you to share in the tranquility that surrounds Charlton House.

Experience the wide open spaces of the Karoo by wandering around the farm or visit the game camps where springbuck, kudu and blesbuck roam.

Charlton House is situated north of the main homestead but has its own private entrance and entertainment area...ie north facing undercover stoep and outside braai.  Poplar wood is supplied.
It has 3 bedrooms, 2 of them have 2 single beds in each with an inter-leading bathroom which has a bath, shower, toilet and basin.  The main bedroom has a double bed and a single bed in and has an en-suite bathroom which has a shower, toilet and basin.
The lounge area is very comfortable and has full DSTV.  The kitchen/diningroom/bar area is all-in-one area with an inside fireplace for the chilly winters.
The swimming is just next to the cottage which is available to you at any time.  Please to bring your own swimming towels along.
The view from the cottage is amazing with the flats and then the mountains in the background...a really tranquil  and beautiful setting!
