Perfekte naweek weg!

Die foto's wys nie hoe mooi alles is nie. Ons het dit so baie geniet en het besluit om jaarliks Cottage Pie toe te gaan. Dit was alles en meer.

Beeldskone natuur met 'n pragtige uitsig oor die berge.

Pragtige ligging met baie vriendelike eienaar. Ons het gereis saam met ons hondjie en sy het dit vreeslik geniet om saam met die vriendelike honde op die perseel te speel. Die huisie is ook netjies afgekamp sodat sy nie kon uitkom nie.

Picturesque nature with a beautiful view of the mountains.

Beautiful location with very friendly owner. We traveled with our puppy and she really enjoyed playing with the friendly dogs on site. The house was also neatly cordoned off so she couldn't get out.

Stylvol, maar wees voorbereid vir loadshedding!

Die instansie word ge-adverteer as troeteldiervriendelik, maar maak net vooraf seker dat hulle die boodskappe wel gelees het as jy probeer reël vir troeteldiere. Hulle was verbaas toe ons daar aankom met 'n hond en 'n kat. Maar die verblyf was steeds baie lekker. Die houthuis sit op die voet van 'n berg, en het 'n tuintjie voor, met heerlike sitplek en braaiplek langs 'n stroompie. Die enigste ding wat ons verblyf sou kon beter maak is as daar 'n gasstofie ook was. Dit was baie koud die 2 aande wat ons daar was, en met loadshedding in die aand wil mens regtig net 'n koppie koffie kan drink. Verder was dit lieflik, prentjiemooi en baie skoon en netjies.

Stylish, but be prepared for loadshedding!

The establishment is advertised as pet friendly, but just make sure they have read the messages beforehand if you are trying to arrange for pets. They were surprised when we arrived with a dog and a cat. But the stay was still very nice. The wooden house sits at the foot of a mountain, and has a small garden in front, with lovely seating and a barbecue area next to a stream. The only thing that could make our stay better is if there was a gas stove as well. It was very cold the 2 nights we were there, and with loadshedding in the evening you really just want to be able to drink a cup of coffee. Furthermore, it was lovely, picture-perfect and very clean and tidy.

Netjies maar nie uitstaande nie.

Badkamer (klein stort) benodig aandag, stortdeure gevaarlik los, wasbak afronding. Spesiaal gevra om nie die kamer vir die 2 dae te diens nie maar die kamer is nogtans betree. Hoegenaamd geen WiFi, geen verduideliking.

Goeiemore Willem
So jammer om te hoor van jou klagtes.
Die Houthuisie, Rustic Wooden Cabin, word duidelik geadverteer geen Wi-Fi en geen TV. Jy het nooit tydens julle kuier met my gekommunikeer in verband met enige navrae of versoeke nie, so ek kon gevolglik geen verduideliking aanbied nie.
Ons is altyd meer as bereid om ons gaste dadelik by te staan met versoeke. Gesels gerus volgende keer sommer dadelik met my as daar enige iets is waarmee ek kan help.
Tot volgende keer, bly gesond en gelukkig.
Vriendelike groete, Karen.

Very friendly and welcoming stay. The cabin is perfectly situated at the foot of the mountain and stream, yet walking distance from town.

Host is very friendly and helpful. Cleaning services are superb. We fell in love with the stream and mountain surrounding the cabin. Loved the fact that we had access to the Clarens Nature Reserve and got the chance to discover it.

Snoesig en aangenaam.

Die verblyf tydperk by Cottage Pie was wonderlik. Die foto's op die blad wys nie die egte pragtige prent wat die plek in persoon is nie. Die diens was goed en die kamer baie mooi en snoesig. Die enigste terugslag was die ligging teen die berg (alhoewel baie mooi) wat die sein en die temperatuur (in die wintermaande) affekteer.

This review is being shown in its original language.

Cuddly and pleasant.

The stay period at Cottage Pie was wonderful. The photos on the page do not show the real beautiful picture that the place is in person. The service was good and the room very nice and cozy. The only setback was the location against the mountain (although very beautiful) which affects the signal and the temperature (in the winter months).

It was a pleasant and relaxing breakaway from everyday living.

The location of Cottage Pie cannot be beat by anyone. Sitting at the foot of the mountain with direct access, from your back yard, to pretty much all the hiking trails around town. It is very peaceful and beautiful, guaranteed to leave your soul satisfied. The rustic cabin is exactly what it sounds like, a small(but big enough) cabin with no distractions. If you're looking for a place to escape everyday life with your special someone to spend quality time together then I would recommend this option. If you're looking for something with more luxury, then one of their other room options will be what you're looking for. Karen is a wonderful host who will no doubt be able to cater to your needs.

Cosy plekkie reg teen die staproetes, was waarde vir geld en ons het verskriklik lekker gebly.

Ons het die cabin langs die stroompie en staproetes gevat, dis 'n klein cosy plekkie met net die basics, maar als wat jy sal nodig hê. Uitstekende plek en mense, het die eienaars gemis oor hulle weg was, maar ons het geen issues gehad nie en het lekker gebly.

Het nie aan verwagtings voldoen nie.

Ek sal dit as 'n budget oornag klassifiseer. Geen stort, geen lig in badkamer, lig in kombuis maar kon nie skakelaar vind nie, swak onderhoud, bad se kraankop het bv. afgeval as jy daaraan vat. Van die ander kamers is dalk beter.

Dankie vir julle kuier, Marina, en ons mooi sterre.
Die Cabin het nie Wi-Fi jammer as jy dit nie raak gelees het nie.
Sien uit daarna om julle terug te verwelkom , die Bedsitter en Upstairs under Thatch en Family Unit het al 3 WiFi.

Vinnige oornagstop te fiets.

Dit is 'n pragtige plekkie, ons was verwelkom tot 'n doodstil en rustige slaapplek. Effense komplikasie met ons fietse na die eerste verdieping dra, maar dit was weens die feit dat ons té vroeg vir toegang tot die motorhuis vertrek het. Ek kan die plekkie met 'n ope hart aanbeveel.

Quick overnight stop to cycle.

It is a beautiful place, we were welcomed to a dead quiet and peaceful place to sleep. Slight complication with carrying our bikes to the first floor, but that was due to the fact that we left too early for access to the garage. I can recommend the place with an open heart.

We stayed 1 night on our way to the Berg, and 1 night on our return.

The downstairs section was fine as it had a garden, but the upstairs room is very cramped, with hardly a kitchen and no shower.

Cottage Pie 's response

Hi Sue,
Thank you for staying with us at Cottage Pie.
The Upstairs Under Thatch room is advertised as a room with only heat and eat facilities and a bath and no mention of a shower in the en-suite bathroom, sorry if you miss read that.
We are happy that we could upgrade you, for free, for the one night to a bigger Ground level Bedsitter unit with a shower.
Next time you will know what to book and we look forward to welcoming you back.

Die plek is lekker eenkant en stil as jy nie 'n TV wil hê nie.

Geen fout met verblyf nie, maar as jy afdraai vanaf die hoofpad (teerpad), is die grondpad baie sleg vir jou kar.

Die dakkamer was baie gerieflik en skoon.

Ons het baie lekker gebly by Cottage Pie. Die enigste probleem met die dakkamer is dat die stemme van die eenheid onder ons gehoor kan word en nogal steurend kan wees as die mense hard praat. Veral vroeg in die oggend.

We had a great stay at Cottage Pie. The only problem with the roof room is that the voices of the unit can be heard below us and can be quite disturbing if the people are talking loudly. Especially early in the morning.

Sonder twyfel die heerlikste akkommodasie-ervaring wat ek al gehad het met 'n klein gesin. Kan die Cottage Pie-familie-eenheid nie genoeg aanbeveel nie.

Die familie-eenheid by Cottage Pie is 'n ten volle toegeruste huis vol karakter, wat absoluut perfek was vir ons gesin van 5, met pragtige, ruim en 'snoesige' vertrekke. Danksy twee koolstowe is die hele huis heerlik verhit; en met die tuin wat letterlik grens aan die natuurreservaat, kon ons nie vir meer gevra het nie. Karen was so vriendelik en gasvry, dit was werklik 'n onvergeetlike ervaring. Ons sal die Cottage Pie vir seker weer sien!

Without a doubt the most wonderful accommodation experience I have had with a small family. Can't recommend the Cottage Pie family unit enough.

The family unit at Cottage Pie is a fully equipped house full of character, which was absolutely perfect for our family of 5, with beautiful, spacious and 'cozy' rooms. Thanks to two coal stoves, the whole house is wonderfully heated; and with the garden literally bordering the nature reserve, we couldn't have asked for more. Karen was so kind and hospitable, it was truly an unforgettable experience. We will see the Cottage Pie again for sure!

The accommodation was clean, however the location was right next to the nature conservancy at the end of a poor condition dirt road, which was compounded by being too far to walk to the village centre.

An indication of proximity to the main attractions within the town and whether it is in fact within easy walking distance would be a useful added feature. Due to load shedding (which is beyond the control of the owner) the property was extremely dark and lonely.

Lekker en pragtig teen die berg! 'n Rustige wegbreek.

Die rustige bestemming is uitstekend vir 'n gesin met klein kindertjies. Daar is baie spasie in die mooi tuin vir rondhol en lekker speel. Baie netjies en Karen en haar span is baie vriendelik. Mens ervaar die skoonheid en rustigheid van Clarens hier meer as naby aan die dorp, maar dis bietjie ver vir vinnig stap om iets te gaan eet, ens. Dankie! Ons sal julle waarskynlik weer sien!

Groot dankie vir Karen wat in die donker die moeite gedoen het om die boorgatpomp te kom aansit het (ten spyte van die droogte in Clarens - die hele Vrystaat). Volgende keer sal ons langer kom kuier.

Sielskos en rustigheid teen die berg.

As jy rus en vrede in die mooiste tuin teen die berg soek is Cottage Pie die plek vir jou. Die Family Unit voel soos 'n "home away from home" met antieke mooigoed en 'n heerlike kuier kombuis. WiFi was 'n bonus met tieners. Ons het so lekker gerus, met 'n glasie port in die hand op die swaaibank by die rivier gelees en net sommer lekker batterye herlaai. Dankie vir 'n heerlike kuier.

We had such a good time, reading with a glass port in the hand on the bank of the river and just recharging batteries. Thank you for a wonderful visit.

Just delightful, peaceful and close to nature, with all the comforts of home plus a collection of beautiful antiques.

Loved the fire every night, and all the many interesting nick knacks in the house. The garden with the swing seat near the river was a treat.

Pragtig, rustig en natuurskoon.

Die Rustic Wooden Cabin is romanties en toegerus met al die nodige. Ons sal definitief weer Cottage Pie besoek vir 'n heerlike wegkom geleentheid. Karen is vriendelik en laat mens dadelik welkom voel. Sy is ook bereid om die ekstra myl te loop. Dankie vir alles!

Dit het aan ons vereistes voldoen teen 'n billike prys.

Goed uitgerus vir selfsorg-eenheid, beddens en kussings was goed, toilet bietjie klein.

Baie lekker gekuier.

Ons is baie vriendelik ontvang deur Karin en het dadelik tuis gevoel. Cottage Pie is lekker rustig, bietjie weg van die dorp se geraas. Ons het wonderlike weer gehad die naweek. Ons het in die Bedsitter gebly en was voldoende gewees vir ons behoeftes. Tuin is pragtig en word saam met die geboue goed onderhou. Ons sal beslis weer by Cottage Pie kuier.

Very nice stay.

We were warmly welcomed by Karin and immediately felt at home. Cottage Pie is nice and quiet, away from the noise of the town. We had wonderful weather this weekend. We stayed in the Bedsitter and it met our needs. Garden is beautiful and well-maintained, so are the buildings. We will definitely visit Cottage Pie again.

'n Fantastiese week by Karen in Clarens.

Dit was 'n belewenis vir ons. Baie mooi wêreld, lekker weer gehad, en baie lekker gekuier in Clarens danksy Karen se gasvryheid. Baie dankie vir die bederf op Valentynsdag!

Perfekte plekkie om ons wittebrood by af te sluit!

Wow! Die kamer was so cute, 'n regte egte Clarenskamer en -plekkie. Vreeslike vriendelike diens. Baie dankie vir die melk vir koffie wat in die yskas vir ons gewag het, die lekker filterkoffie en die sjerrie wat vir ons uitgesit is. Julle is great!

Lekker ontspannend.

Was baie lekker, WIFI was lekker vinnig. Lekker beddegoed. Ons het piekniekmandjie bygevat en gasvrou het gesê van lekker staproete dam toe. Baie lekker, baie moeite gedoen met die mandjie. Sal beslis weer gaan!

Enjoyed, WiFi was fast. Nice bedding. We took a picnic basket and the hostess told us about a trail to the dam. She really put effort into preparing the basket. Would love to go again.

Nie vir mense wat vol fiemies is nie.

Ons het in die Besitter-eenheid gebly. Die plek is meer geskik vir 2 mense. Dit is baie beknop en daar is ook nie regtig pakplek vir bagasie nie. Die kombuis is piepklein en daar is amper geen werkspasie nie. Die eetgerei, ketel en tweeplaatstoof is uit die oudedoos en moet vervang word. Die braai het ook al beter dae gesien en die tuinstel is ook van 1980. Mens verwag met die bedrag wat jy per nag betaal dat die plek opgegradeer is. Mense met rugprobleme sal ook nie gemaklik op die beddens slaap nie, dis baie sag. Mens kan ook hoor as gaste in die boonste verdieping rondbeweeg. Moet ook nie verwag dat jy lekker voor die TV kan lê en ontspan nie, dis baie klein en in 'n kas gedruk. Goeie punte: vars beddegoed en naby aan die berg vir staproetes.

Not for people who are full of fiemies.

We stayed in the Owner Unit. The place is more suitable for 2 people. It is very cramped and there is not really any storage space for luggage. The kitchen is tiny and there is almost no work space. The cutlery, kettle and two-plate stove are out of the old box and need to be replaced. The braai has also seen better days and the garden set is also from 1980. One expects with the amount you pay per night that the place has been upgraded. People with back problems will also not sleep comfortably on the beds, they are very soft. One can also hear guests moving around in the upper floor. Also, don't expect to be able to lie down and relax in front of the TV, it's very small and tucked into a cupboard. Good points: fresh bedding and close to the mountain for hiking trails.

Cottage Pie 's response

Goeie dag Jana,
Dankie vir jou terugvoer. Ek is baie bly ons kon julle en julle 2 Scotties met vroeg inklok tyd akkomodeer die Saterdag. Ek hoop hulle het dit geniet hier by Cottage Pie in ons tuin en dat julle al Clarens se aktiwiteite kon geniet met geruste harte terwyl julle Scotties veilig by Cottage Pie was. Jammer om te hoor dat jy nie ons "Vintage" gevoel geniet het nie maar darm die beddegoed en die berge.
Vriendelike groete ,
Karen

Teleurstellend.

Die twee kamers wat ons bespreek het was onvoldoende. Nie geskik vir selfsorg nie. Die foto's op die oorsigblad is misleidend en die groot tafel op die stoep is nie beskikbaar vir besoekers in the twee kamers nie. Die draadstoele in die tuin is oud en onvoldoende - gebuigde poot het my bejaarde pa laat val. Die kombuis is baie klein en swak toegerus. Ek moes vra vir 'n broodmes, daar is nie 'n rasper nie, 'n keuse tussen baie klein glase of bier glase. 'n Tweeplaatstoof, geen oond, bitter min werkspasie en 'n baie klein kroegyskas. Die gasvrou het ons blameer dat ons die webwerf verkeerd verstaan het en selfs al het ons moes sy eerder die houding ingeneem het dat sy ons verblyf aangenaam as moontlik wil maak. Ongelukkig was dit 'n onaangename ervaring.

Disappointing.

The two rooms we booked were inadequate. Not suitable for self catering. The photos on the overview page are misleading and the large table on the veranda is not available for visitors in the two rooms. The wire chairs in the garden are old and inadequate - bent leg caused my elderly father to fall. The kitchen is very small and poorly equipped. I had to ask for a bread knife, there is no grater, a choice between very small glasses or beer glasses. A two plate stove, no oven, very little work space and a very small bar fridge. The hostess blamed us for misunderstanding the website and even if we had she should have taken the attitude that she wanted to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Unfortunately, it was an unpleasant experience.

Goeie dag Estie
Die 2 kamers wat jy bespreek het se beskrywings is baie duidelik. Upstairs under Thatch Room het nie kombuis of privaat braaigeriewe nie. Die Bedsitter Unit lys die toerusting in die kombuis duidelik item vir item en sê ingerig vir basiese selfsorg. Nêrens word stoof of oond genoem. Oorsig fotos gee 'n oorsig in die geheel. Kamer fotos en kamer beskrywings is daar sodat jy as gas seker kan maak dat dit wat jy bespreek aan jou behoeftes voldoen. Jy het presies gekry wat jy bespreek het.
Ons het jou wel probeer tegemoet kom deur die groot hout tafel, wat nie gelys is in die kamers wat jy vir jou en jou mense bespreek het nie, wel omgedra is na die Bedsitter se tuin, met groot moeite, vir jou om julle verblyf so aangenaam moontlik te maak.
Hoop julle vlug terug na London was goed en die nuwe jaar voorspoedig.
Vriendelike groete,
Karen
