What a wonderful, peaceful place just to relax and enjoy! This is where you go when you want to experience the magic of the Karoo. The bonus was that we could bring our Bassets along. Thanks Ashley and André for your hospitality - and allowing us to send an urgent work email from your computer.

It's the perfect location with the most generous hosts! Everything about the cottage is also thought out with care and beautiful as well as comfortable. Far enough off the track to get away from everything, but close enough not be be a big mission at all.

A Peaceful and beautiful farm with wonderful birdlife and star filled skies. The cottage is cozy for cold winter nights. Our hosts were great and we loved being visited by their dogs. The perfect escape!

We got exactly what we were looking for - peace and quiet, endless beauty and no cellphone reception!! The little cottage was basic but met all our needs. Beautiful G&T evenings on the stoep and lots of walks with the dogs!

Our first time at Wolverfontein and we were blown away by the generosity of our hosts - nothing was too much trouble for them. The bath and shower were completely out of this world. Thanks so much for such a great time

As usual, Wolverfontein, and in particular, Ashley and Andre, were amazing ! It was a birthday getaway in perfect surroundings, away from the maddening crush of city life - exactly what was needed ! Our accommodation was perfect for our needs and allowed us to let our hair down. The pooches were perfectly behaved and certainly made us feel welcome too. Even when we had car troubles when it came to going home, our lovely hosts went out their way to help us - thank you, guys ! We will be back !

Our family spend the Easter Weekend in the Zara cottage on Wolverfontein. So much peace and quiet, we didn't want to leave again. We loved the beautiful dogs that came to say good morning every day. There were mountain bikes for the boys, and a cool stoep for me to sit and read. And at night the stars from horizon to horizon. Our lovely hosts Ashley and André made sure that we had everything we needed. We'll be back!
