The Little Tinderbox
Self Catering Cottage/ House/ Bungalow, Tonteldoos, Capricorn, Limpopo
The Little Tinderbox is a tranquil, alone standing cottage/house on a 14ha
farm in the quaint little farmer's community called Tonteldoos in Mpumalanga
(20km from Dullstroom). It boasts with spectacular views on the tranquil
mountain hills from the lounge, dining area as well as bedrooms.
Besides for its 3 lovely newly decorated bedrooms it also has 2 wooden loft areas which sleeps 2 people each and therefore this establishment can house up to 11 people comfortably.
It has a fully equipped kitchen & 2 bathrooms as well as a double carport.
Despite its name, the Little Tinderbox is quite spacious with double volume in the lounge area as well as a fireplace (fire wood provided free of charge on request!).
Furthermore this lovely little gem has a fenced natural rock garden surrounding the cottage which contains natural flora such as the indigenous "varkoor lillies" as well as large age-old aloes. Also found in the garden is a fruit orchard & a large braai.
On the farm many species of fauna roams such as duikers & klipspringers, porcupines and many more and this is also a hiker and bird watcher's dream. Because this establishment is so far away from any artificial lights, it has been said to be one of the best places for stargazing.
Visit the Pendlehill Diary farm for extraordinary cheeses or the local pub, The Planter to experience the heart and soul of Tonteldoos!
