Check-out: 10:00 AM
When can I check-in and check-out?\nYou may arrive on the reserve any time from 10am on the day of your stay. However, the cottages will not be available until 3pm (although you are welcome to ask if it might be earlier). Check-out is by 10am on the morning you leave, but you can stay on the reserve until 5pm. The exception to this is Sunday. As we do not take check-ins on Sunday, you are welcome to stay in your cottage until 3pm. We believe this will enable you to make the most of your weekend with us.\n\nAre you Pet Friendly?\nWe love animals and enjoy pets. Unfortunately, as we also want to keep the reserve a place that anyone can enjoy and protect the local fauna, we do not allow visitors to bring pets onto the reserve. The only exception will be guide dogs.\n\nDo you provide bedding?\nWe provide bedding and towels. The cottages are only serviced between stays. Should you wish your cottage to be serviced during your stay, then this will be an additional cost.\n\nDo you have electricity?\nAll the cottages have electricity (load-shedding permitting). This runs the lighting, fridge, microwave and backs-up the solar hot water. The stove is entirely gas to ensure that there is always a means of cooking.\n\nDo you have DSTV?\nWe do not provide a television of any sort.\n\nCan I get cellphone reception?\nAll the main cellphone providers give good reception in the cottages. Around the reserve, especially in the valleys, the signal is less assured.\n\nDo you have Internet/Wifi?\nThere is no Wifi in the cottages but cellphone reception is good enough for low levels of data use.\n\nDo you provide wood?\nWe provide a small basket of wood suitable for the log-burning stove. Braai wood and further supplies for the stove need to be purchased separately.\n\nDo you provide food?\nWe currently have no food available on the reserve. Breakfast, lunches, afternoon teas and evening meals can be booked in advance at the neighbouring Blue Gum Country Estate.\n\nCan you provide a cot?\nWe have one travelcot available. There is no cost but it needs to be booked in advance.\n\nWhere can I smoke?\nWe kindly request that no-one smokes in the cottages or around the reserve. We live in a very fire-prone vegetation and the risk of accidental fires from cigarettes is too great. For residents, we ask that you only smoke in the area immediately outside the cottage by the braai and discard all extinguished butts in the braai places.\n\nCan I cycle on the reserve?\nThe reserve is not very appropriate for bicycles. We are mainly mountain and there is very little flat area. It is not very long, but you are welcome to cycle along the jeep track as far as the picnic tree (please do not go on the other trails, as that will damage them). However, there is plenty of good cycling in the local area. The dirt road past the reserve entrance goes all the way down to the R43, joining it just past Madre\u2019s Kitchen, meaning that you can safely cycle into Stanford. There is also a lovely dirt road that climbs past Stanford Valley onto the Elim road. This can be made into a good loop back past the Cheese Factory, with very little tar to negotiate.
