About Vredenhof Cottages

A rugged Riviersonderend backdrop + 1000ha of open Boland countryside + three no-nonsense cottages = healthy soulfood for the urban weary. Tucked into the picturesque Robertson Valley, about 32km south of the town, Vredenhof’s recently renovated worker cottages make for a respectable group- or families-with-pooches escape.

The cottages are set on a gentle slope, about 50m apart. They are basic, yet perfectly adequate units: clean, comfortable and equipped, including linen and towels. Common to the triplets is an equipped kitchen, dining and living area, a loo, shower, and Dover stove to stave off the winter chill. Each has two bedrooms (double and twin), a covered voorstoep with built-in braai and soothing vistas across farmland and mountain, and a hot outdoor shower for a scrub under the stars.

While endless mugs of moerkoffie and sizzling chops on the braai will keep the bulk of us sedentary types cemented to the stoep, there's certainly enough to do. A worthwhile and easy stroll takes one up the gorgeous kloof near the cottages; there’s a farm dam where the kids can frolic and fish; informal mountain bike routes, long walks and wine farms are in plentiful supply; the night skies and general tranquillity are second to none; and Robertson, with its healthy spread of restaurants, coffee shops, wide streets and various other low-key attractions, is 32km up the road. An easy-going and uncomplicated getaway that will tick a bunch of boxes for many a Budget weekender.

Family friendly: Families like to come here to rest and just enjoy each other's company. No TV and internet - let the people talk to each other! Lots of veld/mountains to walk in and enjoy nature!

              Lovely cosy spot on the outskirts of Robertson. Would have loved to have stayed longer.

              Ons 4 aande se verblyf het 7 geword omdat ons so heerlik gekuier het in 'n praghuisie met geen TV en die mooiste uitsig op die berge en plaas. Het lekker kos gemaak op die houtstoof in die huisie en sommer hitte so verkry teen die koue. Gasvrou baie vriendelik en beskikbaar as mens navraag het. Sal beslis aanbeveel vir mense wat stilte soek. Gaan beslis weer in Kraalbos uitspan in die nabye toekoms. Voorwaar waarde vir geld.

              This is the second time I have stayed in these cottages. Good value for money I a lively quiet spot. Heaven for this farm boy who now lives and works in the city. Some info on farm boundaries and walks would've been good. One doesn't want to trespass. Flies were troublesome. Soon soray provided but I was reminded that I an allergic. Perhaps a well placed flie catcher? They are difficult to deal with.

              We loved being on the farm & away from it all. We had quality rest, quality accomodation, lovely strolls along farm roads, plenty of birding and some wildlife too. Enjoyed all the weather (heat & rain). Was absolutely therapeutic for us.The Duckitt's would recommend it anytime.
