Pragtige bergligging in 'n spogtuin.

Die verblyf is ideaal vir die rustiges en avontuurlustiges: mooi huisie, pragtige tuin met swembad en volop voëls, veld en berg met wild en plaasdiere. Gasvrou baie behulpsaam.

Beautiful mountain location in a spectacular garden.

The accommodation is ideal for the calm and adventurous: nice house, beautiful garden with swimming pool and plenty of birds, field and mountain with wildlife and farm animals. Hostess very helpful.

Baie gerieflik verblyf in besondere tuin.

'n Mens sal ver soek om sulke heerlike verblyf in so 'n uitstaande tuin én met sulke gasvryheid te kry! Hierdie is 'n uitsonderlike plaastuin wat nie in woorde beskryf kan word nie, mens moet self gaan kyk. Wendy is so gasvry, nadat ons vroegoggend gaan stap het, het Wendy ons genooi vir koffie en beskuit en ons het te lekker gekuier. Ons het dit besonder waardeer dat Wendy ons gekrediteer het met die koste van ons een seun wat as gevolg van reisbeperkings nie Suid-Afrika toe kon kom nie. Baie dankie, ons sal definitief teruggaan!

Very comfortable accommodation in a special garden.

One would look far to find such wonderful accommodation in such an outstanding garden and with such hospitality! This is an exceptional farm garden that cannot be described in words, you have to go and see for yourself. Wendy is so hospitable, after we went for an early morning walk, Wendy invited us for coffee and biscuits and we had a great time. We especially appreciated that Wendy credited us with the cost of our one son who could not come to South Africa due to travel restrictions. Thank you very much, we will definitely go back!

Baie spesiaal!

As jy in Cookhouse se omgewing wil oornag, of 'n paar dae wil oorbly, hoef jy rêrig nie verder te soek nie. Olivewoods is geleë op 'n plaas 'n paar kilometers buite die dorp, naby die hoofhuis met pragtige tuine. Die vertrekke is ruim, gerieflik en baie smaakvol gemeubileer. Alles was skoon en netjies en die linne was kraakvars en die matras baie gemaklik. Ek is vriendelik deur Wendy ontvang, wie gereeld kom verneem het of alles nog reg is. Ek het net daar oornag maar sal graag weer wil oorbly vir 'n langer besoek. Die tarief is uiters goedkoop vir wat jy kry en dis gerieflik naby aan die Addo-olifantpark.

Very special!

If you want to spend the night in Cookhouse's area, or stay for a few days, you really don't have to look any further. Olivewoods is situated on a farm a few kilometers outside the town, close to the main house with beautiful gardens. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and very tastefully furnished. Everything was clean and tidy and the linen was crisp and the mattress very comfortable. I was kindly received by Wendy, who often came to find out if everything was still okay. I only stayed there overnight but would love to stay again for a longer visit. The rate is extremely cheap for what you get and it's conveniently close to the Addo Elephant Park.

Rustige stil omgewing.

Ideale plek om vir 'n naweek weg te breek na 'n stil plattelandse plek.

Skoon, netjies en aangenaam.

Die gashere was uitstekend en het ons genooi om saam met hulle ’n ligte ete en drankie te geniet. Daar is ’n wonderlike tuin en fantastiese uitsig vanaf die huis.

Fantastiese verblyf.

Ons het per ongeluk op Olivewoods afgekom nadat al die plekke by Colesberg en Gariep vol was. Ons is so bly ons het hierdie stukkie hemel ontdek. Wendy en Brett se tuin is ongelooflik mooi en alles so mooi opgepas. Die cottage was so mooi netjies met lekker filterkoffie en beskuit wat daar vir jou gesit word. Dit het alles in wat jy nodig het. Ons was verwelkom deur hulle vriendelike Ridgeback en Fox Terrier. Olivewoods is ook dierevriendelik wat vir my baie belangrik was oor ons 2 pugs saam kon oorbly. Ons sien uit om met ons volgende reis weer daar 'n draai te maak.

Fantastic stay.

We came across Olivewoods by accident after all the places at Colesberg and Gariep were full. We are so glad we discovered this piece of heaven. Wendy and Brett's garden is incredibly beautiful and everything is so well looked after. The cottage was so nice and tidy with nice filter coffee and biscuits that are put there for you. It has everything you need. We were welcomed by their friendly Ridgeback and Fox Terrier. Olivewoods is also animal friendly which was very important to me because our 2 pugs could stay together. We look forward to visiting there again on our next trip.

Goeie waarde vir geld.

Ons het baie lekker gebly. Die verblyf is baie mooi, skoon en netjies, ook op 'n baie mooi plaas geleë. Al wat ek wel sal aanbeveel is om 'n groter/stabiele Weber of braai-area te bou/kry vir die gaste wat iets sal wil braai vir aandete.

Good value for money.

We had a very nice stay. The accommodation is very nice, clean and tidy, also located on a very nice farm. All I would recommend is to build/get a bigger/stable Weber or grill area for the guests who want to grill something for dinner.

Pragtige, rustige plekkie met die mooiste natuurskoon!

Beste waarde vir geld nog! Brett en Wendy is voorwaar baie gasvry. Wens ons kon 'n maand lank daar bly! Filterkoffie was 'n absolute bonus en is baie waardeer!
