Hubby and i got away from the hustle and bustle of the city for the past weekend. It was the best thing ever. Surroundings was beautifully landscaped loved watching the cows grazing and the sound of the stream was most relaxing. Only snag is no restaurants are open after 5pm. You got to have an early dinner. Piggly Wiggly a...

Stayed in lavender cottage and very much enjoyed our stay. Very comfortable with every amenity required. Kitchen very well stocked with utensils, pans etc. Bathroom could do with updating - grouting around tiles cracked and discoloured. Directions could be a little better. We came through Howick so got a bit lost as the directions were only from the freeway exit....

We really enjoyed our stay in the protea cottage. The cottage was well furnished, extremely clean and catered for our every need. The setting was incredible with an amazing view of the countryside. Our stay was very peaceful and tranquill. We highly recommend Lions River country cottages for a peaceful, relaxed getaway.

We had a relaxing, uninterrupted and truly wonderful stay. At night we sat outside watching fireflies and by day the view of lush green and cows in the field renewed our souls. Thank you to our kind hosts.

This is an excellent example of a well maintained, comfortable cottage in a quiet, peaceful setting. We appreciated the attention given to detail that was visible all over as well as the privacy we could enjoy. Undercover parking would have completed a perfect picture. Thank you for a great experience.

Two nights were not enough - we will be back. Accommodation is secluded and private enough to make it a great get away. We arrived slightly late in the afternoon but our host was waiting for us on our arrival. Made us feel very welcome indeed.

We had a lovely stay thank you. Lavender Cottage was just what we wanted. Very comfortable and so peaceful. It would be good if you could indicated the shampoo in the shower as we weren't sure whether it was shampoo or body wash. We will be back as its a great place to recharge those batteries.

Stayed early November 2016. Two mature couples in Rose Cottage. Beautiful location, excellent accommodation. Breakfast was cooked and served in the cottage at a very reasonable cost. Only drawback was the approach track, which was a bit rough for about 1/4 of a mile before reaching the property (Vast) when the approach was paved. However, this is completely compensated for...
