Millgate Cottage, far from its neighbours, is a five-acre property set amid farmlands. Most city dwellers long for such peace and tranquility, fantastic views, pure natural water and clean air.

While able to sleep a maximum of 35 guests, there are three kinds of accommodation units to choose from, cottages, suites, and a farmhouse.

The Millgate Cottage property has two self-catering, self-service cottages with modern kitchens fully equipped with stoves, microwaves, fridge-freezers, crockery and cutlery. Selected DStv channels ensure that you will not miss your favourite sports event or series. Each cottage also has a verandah and braai facilities. Guests staying in the cottages can drive their car up to the door.

Millgate has three additional self-service suites, two of which have self-catering facilities. The third, Durdle Door has a fridge, microwave and kettle, but no stove or washing up facilities. All suites have fans, heaters and DStv to make your stay a pleasant one. The views from the suites are that of a lush garden backed by forest. Guests staying in the suites leave their car in the car park.

We have refurbished our farmhouse into two separate family/group units. Farmhouse 1 accommodates five people and farmhouse 2 up to nine people. Both have fully equipped kitchens but there is only one bathroom in each unit. Because of their size, we set a minimum occupancy of three people or the rate equivalent. Set at the bottom of the garden, backed by forest, both enjoy lovely views and perfect tranquillity.

While a self-service establishment, long-stay guests have their units fully cleaned and their linen changed every three days. Long and short-stay guest can arrange daily servicing at an additional charge.

For entertainment, guests visit The Crafty Mole which is Balgowan’s local pub where neighbours rub shoulders with tourists and other Millgate Cottage’s guests. The Crafty Mole specialises in locally brewed craft beers, taken in the pub itself or al fresco, under the shade of a tree, in Millgate's lovely garden. Along with your drink you can try out a game of pool, challenge your friends at darts and have fun on the putt putt course. The Crafty Mole has a large screen DStv and is connected to WiFi for the use of Millgate Cottage guests.

Guest have use of the gardens and can climb into the forest where views are even more spectacular. Walkers can follow the farm roads surrounded by the sounds and smells of nature. There are trout dams in the vicinity and several golf courses.
