"Great value for money, nice accommodation and a great escape from the busy city. We stayed in Bushwillow, loved every minute and will definitely be back."

"The cottages were clean and cosy, the staff very friendly and we enjoyed walking the well-laid-out trails. We managed to do all trails within a day. For the price we paid (R840 per night for two people), we would have expected to have had a little more attention to detail in some aspects, e.g. loose taps, pots with broken handles, etc."
