Beatrix was amazing, helpfull and accommodation from the start of the reservation to the end of our stay, very accommodating, the cottage was neat comfortable, had the basic utilities, the surrounds of the property was tranquil and peacefull. The gravel road to the cottages is a bit difficult but Beatrix offered to drive us to our cottage. I would go...

The weekend at Ravenna was one of my best! We were in Thorntree, part of the original farmhouse! Although old, the house offered what we wanted and needed! Big braai on the stoep as well as a swimming pool open for everyone! What we enjoyed most at night was the total darkness, more stars in heaven you can imagine, and...

Having been referred to the farm by a good friend, and on our way back home after 15 days' travelling through Swellendam and Barrydale, we decided to take the "luxury" flatlet and pay up front for 2 nights. We felt very disappointed when we arrived and saw the actual flat - we often travel in this area, and this flat...

Ravenna is lovely for a family getaway. The cottage (Gumtree) was spacious and kids enjoyed hanging out in the garden. Chino was good company; the kids loved the occasional visits. We never got to do the hiking trails though; perhaps next time.

We stayed in the Rosemary cottage, was comfortable with a little kitchen, lovely spacious shower. Little dressing area with mirrors. Table and chairs outside the sliding door and a built in braai. Quiet getaway, with lovely dams nearby and Montagu town is close. Would love to return soon.

This retreat comprises several different types and sizes of accommodation. We stayed in Lavender cottage which was joined to Rosemary cottage. Lavender was nice enough - tiny but reasonably appointed kitchen (microwave and small oven) and two single beds. Wood and electric fire inside and wood braai outside and electric blankets (well appreciated!). But Rosemary cottage has by far the...

We found Ravenna Mountain Retreat to be very peaceful and quiet. Nice open air spaces for kids to run around and play, nice walks for all to enjoy, pity we didn't bring our Mountain Bikes, will definitely bring those next time. Chalets are basic yet sufficient for self-catering. Montagu town is close by should you have forgotten anything. The braai...

Ravenna is a fantastic venue for short - or long term stays - if you're visiting Montagu / Barrydale. Not only are they well situated and cost-effective, but along with that they offer warm service, and gorgeous little cabins let on a B&B or self-catering basis. The venue is quite secluded, as are all the cabins. They have incredibly cute...

Glorious views, wonderful hikes, welcoming and unobtrusive - but willing and helpful staff (always smiling).. the silence here is so rejuvenating. It's been years since we've picked organic sun-ripened apricots straight off the tree, or had a swim in the dam (or two resident pools). The infinity pool at Eden is well worth the walk up there. A range of...

Just returned from a weekend away at Ravenna Mountain Retreat. Can highly recommend to travellers looking for a simple, relaxed get away in tranquil surroundings. There are a range of cottages on the property all with their own quaintness. A value for money experience and an awesome way to get away from it all to rejuvenate the soul. A variety...

“Cosy, Tranquil, great getaway with no TV's”

“For a romantic stay, Honeybush is definitely the way to go! Also, don't leave the outside light on if your door is open. Moths are fairly frequent visitors around the braai areas, and they will follow you indoors and swarm any indoor light source you have.”

“A cotttage facing 'the view' is probably better in high season as the pool is communal.”
