David, we have mixed reactions to our stay at your cottage.
GOOD: Ambiance, bed very good, fire welcome, lots of charm
NOT SO GOOD: shower over bath (for two senior people), kitchen was untidy, ie crockery/ cutlery all mixed up, bench difficult to use. Shutters were difficult to reach over shrubbery and catches did not work.
Also, we were very disturbed by the condition in which nearby chickens were being housed, could you tell me who they belong to as I intend to follow this up?
The signage to the property is totally inadequate for those driving past - tiny lettering, no light, and instructions even when we drove in were hard to follow, ie. you mention a courtyard .- YOU may know its there but to strangers all we see is grass and a wall, we dont know whats behind, there was NO light on, and we had to find the keybox with a torch. We were expecting the keys to be at the front of the house, too. I would suggest:
Drive into driveway of house, bear left, through opening then left up grassed area where you will see freestanding cottage to your right/front. In a courtyard at the rear, entered via a gate in the brick wall......
Cosy chic cottage
We really enjoyed our stay here with a little french flavour. The cottage had everything we needed with comfortable bed, nice spa bath and great little kitchen with all the bare necessities. It is very relaxing and although there was no internet it is a good place to escape and chillout. The setting was just a short drive outside of Robe and near Cape Jaffa vineyard. A fabulous spot.
Loved out stay cottage beautiful. Clean and the bed was really comfy. Bathroom very cold could do with some heat. Open fire fantastic when you can get it going. Booking did state bed and breakfast but no breakfast supplied unfortunately
