Owl Cottage sits in the heart of the green valley of Magoebaskloof. Look to one side; see a mountain covered in lush indigenous forest and to the other over indigenous bush across to mighty pine plantations. Water features in the garden bring you the wonderful gentle sound of life giving water.
We offer you tea, coffee, sugar, milk and a jar of rusks. There will be a bottle of red wine to sip as the sun goes down. We have some lovely Koekoek chickens that give us beautiful golden yolk eggs and when they are laying well we will share them with you for your breakfast. There are fresh herbs in the garden, so you could even make a delicious omelette.
Owl Cottage is situated 200ms off the R71 in the Magoebaskloof Valley, 25kms west of Tzaneen and 15kms from the village of Haenertsburg, where there is a good pub with grub and a bistro. Phalaborwa is about 90 minutes drive. The cottage is ideally situated for sight seeing being only 4kms from the Debengi Falls turn off. We are on the southern edge of the Woodbush Reserve, good for bird watching. Frequent visitors to our 4 Hectare avocado and pecan nut farm are Cape Parrots and both Vervet and the rare Samango monkey.
Owl Cottage is fully equipped self catering accommodation for up to 7 people. The well equipped open plan kitchen has a full gas stove and two fridges for the all important food and drinks. There is a gas space heater and both water and stove are fuelled by gas, so no worries about load shedding. There is a pleasant dining/sitting room. We can accommodate 7 people as our large sunroom bedroom has 3 single beds. There are 2 bathrooms one en-suite with the main bedroom. We provide all your bedding and towels, there are electric blankets for winter and some hot water bottles as well as extra blankets just in case there is a cold snap.
We are a non smoking facility but do offer ashtrays outside on the covered stoep. There is no TV but we provide board games and playing cards and a dartboard on the stoep along with 3 free standing braais and seating for 6. Outside you have a small herb garden and a good view of the valley over the sparkling swimming pool.
We are a summer rainfall area and have some beautiful misty mornings and stunning sunrises. In winter the sky is blue and the night skies are spectacular.
