          This was one of my favorite locations up to date, the view is breathtaking, the house was beautifully made up and everything was catered for. And to top it off the service was great, every aspect, from the booking, to when we arrived all the way up until we left was just effortless and easy. I highly recommend this accommodation to anyone looking for a relaxing get away or even just stopping by in the area. Complete value for money!

          We enjoyed a warm welcome and the thoughtfulness of a loaf of home-made bread with butter and jam left for us in the cottage, and a half litre of milk. There was ample coffee and tea along with firefighters and matches for our use - a far cry from some guest cottages.The cottage was clean and comfortable. The beds were made up with lovely crisp linen and there were two towels and a facecloth per person. We really enjoyed sitting out at our braai fire and watching a troop of baboons feeding in the distance along with four antelope. A real farm cottage stay - we would happily have stayed another...

          We stayed at Appelsbosch Guest House for 2 nights, I wish I had booked for longer. It's the ideal place if you want to get away from the fast pace of everyday life and just enjoy the view and the nature around you. I will definitely be going back some time for another visit.
