The Aloe Cottage is situated on a working farm in the middle of Swellendam (27km), Malagas(19 km) which has the only pontoon that is driven by hand and De Hoop Nature Reserve(23km). You can experience real country living while watching the everyday activities that happen on the farm.

The Aloe Cottage is fully equipped with one bedroom, a private bathroom, a well-appointed kitchen and a lounge area with DStv and two sleeper couches. Linen and towels are also provided. There is an indoor and outdoor braai area. Pick your own eggs for breakfast yourself out of the nests and collect fresh milk from the dairy for free.

Both The Aloe Canyons Guestfarm, and Aloe Canyons Cottage has has an open-plan setup and is suited to accommodate 2 guests. It comes equipped with a queen-size bed with an en-suite bathroom, a kitchen, a lounge area and an indoor braai area. Linen and towels are also provided.

Guests can see how the cows are milked and how the calves and lambs are fed. Feel free to cycle, jog or take a leisurely walk and see interesting reptiles, birds, animals and plants. The patio has beautiful views of the Renosterveld bush while springbucks graze only 3 meters away and mountain tortoises eating apples.

Guests may also use Aloe Canyons Wild Life and Guestfarm, only 2km away to watch Eland, Kudu, and the most exquisite birdlife. The wildlife is very tamed, so you can walk around and have a nearby sight of them.

There is a playpen for children, a little river in front of the lapa with facilities where you can braai, kayak, or spend the day if you feel like. Ablution blocks are on the premises as well.

This is a must for animal lovers and people with a love for nature.
