Pleasant.

Incorrect cottage located to us. No 6 instead of 7 as booked. Walls very thin. Received call first night for complaint about noisy TV. Got woken up at 5 am every morning after by next door guests. Walls not sound proof.

Een van die beste plekke waar ek nog gebly het!

Anvil Stud Cottages tick al die blokkies, ruim kamer met puik meubels en toerusting in 'n rustige en pragtige omgewing. Egte koffie is super spesiaal.

Anvil Stud Cottages is ongelooflik baie mooi geleë in die Vallei van 1000 Heuwels.

Ek sal enige tyd Anvil Stud Cottages aanbeveel vir enige iemand wat goeie en luukse verblyf soek by die pragtige Vallei van 1000 Heuwels, die eienaars is baie vriendlik en behulpsaam en alle Covid-19-voorsorgmaatreëls is gevolg, daar is ook baie om te doen in die omgewing en binne kort ry-afstand van meeste restaurante en malls af, regtig uitstekende verblyfopsie.

And the cottages are so homely and warm and you just feel so comfortable, it's like your home away from home and I shall definitely be returning soon.

Die verblyf was ongelooflik lekker en ons het tuis gevoel.

Daar word baie aandag gegee aan klein dingetjies soos beskuit, warm sjokolade en self vars melk in die yskas. Selfs die wynglase is van goeie gehalte wat jou nog meer tuis laat voel. Goeie beddegoed word gebruik en selfs elektriese kombers vir koue aande. Ons sal beslis weer daar tuisgaan en ander mense aanbeveel.

The stay was incredibly nice and we felt at home.

A lot of attention is paid to small things like biscuits, hot chocolate and even fresh milk in the fridge. Even the wine glasses are of good quality which makes you feel even more at home. Good bedding is used and even an electric blanket for cold nights. We will definitely stay there again and recommend to other people.

Would like to live there forever.

The only problem I saw: with four people it is a bit cramped as 2 sleep in the lounge. So I would only advise families or people who know each other well to stay there if the group is made up of more than 2. The beds are comfortable, the pillows smelt divine and hygienic. Next time: top room, here we come!

Ons het heerlik gebly in die ruim kothuis op die lowergroen landskap.

Pragtige kothuis is baie ruim en voorsien aan alle behoeftes. Dit word daagliks skoongemaak en die beskuithouers word opgevul! Eienares, Dot, is baie gaaf en haar honde té dierbaar vir woorde. Ons het daagliks van daar na Kearsney College gery vir sport, lekker na genoeg geleë. Dis baie mooi en groen, die kleinhoewe word baie goed na omgesien. Dis baie veilig en vreedsaam op Anvil Stud Farm. Ek beveel dit hoog aan.

We had a wonderful stay in the spacious cottage on the leafy green landscape.

Beautiful cottage is very spacious and caters for all needs. It is cleaned daily and the biscuit containers are refilled! Owner, Dot, is very nice and her dogs too lovely for words. We drove daily from there to Kearsney College for sports, nice enough location. It's very beautiful and green, the small holdings are very well looked after. It's very safe and peaceful at Anvil Stud Farm. I highly recommend it.

Just three little complaints.

No milk for tea/coffee, we had to go and buy, luckily we were going out for dinner so this was not an extra trip. The double bed in the master bedroom nearest the window was slightly lopsided, my husband kept on having to move up or he would roll off the bed. Pillows not very comfortable.

Anvil Stud kothuis het ons 'n heerlike basis verskaf terwyl ons 'n hokkie kampioenskap bygewoon het.

Daar is verskeie restaurante in die omgewing, maar die kothuis is so toegerus dat jy gemaklik vir jou self kan sorg - ons het een aand heerlik gebraai en die wonderlik kalmte van die omgewing geniet. Die veraf roep van 'n visarend was 'n welkome bonus!
