Getaway magazine - Guide to the best rated accommodation in Tulbagh

Getaway magazine has rated our cottage as “Best private cottage” in their latest article. 

Here is what they had to say:

If you’re looking for privacy and peace amid rolling fields, a deep stoep from which to enjoy the mountain panorama, a spacious lounge-dining room with a large fireplace,
a well-equipped kitchen and a fair-sized swimming pool in your own private garden, Raptor Rise Cottage is for you. Averil and Bill Slater renovated this in order to stay here while they fixed up their old farmhouse, and it’s clear from the level of detail that they are perfectionists.
 They never did move in ‒ the cottage was commandeered by their guests, and has been busy ever since!
 They are now developing other buildings on the farm ‒ Bill recently renovated the stables (situated near the main farmhouse) into four very compact self-catering units (each sleeping two) and a two-bedroom family unit.
Room tip: Even if you’re just two, Raptor Rise Cottage
 is the one to book. [Read More…]
