Soak up the sounds of silence in my one bedroom garden cottage with its rustic re-purposed furnishings and calming, quirky touches, whilst enjoying the delightful ambience of our quiet country village.

Doors lead out from the cosy open-plan kitchen and living area into a shady dappled garden with fruit trees and indigenous plants. An outdoor seating area, hammocks, fire pit and reading nook beckon, promising a hidden escape from the world, with fabulous wineries and restaurants on your doorstep. Monk's Cottage is tucked away in a shady corner at the bottom of my property, situated in the quiet top area of McGregor. Benefitting from the peace and privacy of the quiet area of town, but within easy walking distance of the main road. Guests have their own access and complete privacy. Surrounded by fruit and olive trees, indigenous plants and herbs, the cottage has been decorated with calm and serenity in mind, with re-purposed items salvaged from local farms and villages; a rustic retreat and detox from the world. The kitchen and living area with indoor fireplace leads into a comfortable en-suite bedroom with queen-size bed, hypo-allergenic duvet and pillows, 100% cotton percale linen, with electric blanket and extra blankets for cold McGregor nights. A standing fan and mosquito net for hot summers. Towels, fluffy gowns, hospitality toiletries, coffee, tea and other essentials are provided. Outside we have a barbecue and seating area leading to a plunge pool, fire pit and braai, and shaded reading nook. The pool, fire pit and reading area are shared with guests from the second cottage on the premises, if both are booked. Both cottages may be hired for a larger group. I live on the premises with my small dog, and guests can choose as little or as much interaction with me as they please.

My space is intended as a retreat from the world, and such we do not have Wi-Fi or television, and we request guests to respect the quiet nature of the environment.

It was fantastic, Jill gave us all the necessary details on email, Glynn met us and showed us around. We met Sugar the dog who was adorable. The cottage had everything we needed and the garden with the bird feeders was incredible . Definitely recommend.
