We had a wonderful relaxing weekend enjoying the fresh air and cosy fires. All good.

P.S. I forgot to mention how wonderful it was not to have to rush out on Sunday morning! Thank you for letting us have a leisurely start to the day.

This short note comes to say a big thank you for the accommodation at Sheltered Vale. My choice in choosing your families facility turned out to be a good one, with everyone having loved the ‘oh too short’ stay.

I loved the peace and tranquillity, which was much needed after an extremely busy working year, having faced many challenges.

The beds were so comfortable that I slept deeply and woke refreshed each morning, which I haven’t done in many years.

Thank you to you and your family for letting us share a little piece of your heaven.

Warm regards,




Thank you for a wonderful stay in Cottage 2. We will surely recommend Sheltered Vale to all our friends and family. Quite, peaceful, restful, perfect for a weekend break.





Thanks again for the awesome accommodation.

We loved it!

Kind regards




We thoroughly enjoyed our stay – although too short but wonderful




Thank you Its a lovely place. Family really enjoyed it. And its so clean.

Have a good day.




Lekker verby! Baie aangename en vriendelike ontvangs. Die ligging is medisyne vir die siel.

Absolutely beautiful with friendly owner on a 5 star level. Establishment is modern and clean. Unit was spacious with a beautiful fireplace. Douglas the owner is extremely friendly and very accommodating. Beautiful surroundings. The best view from my own private veranda with a morning coffee was my best memory. So quiet I could hear the trees grow.

The beds have the most luxurious bedding. The best nights sleep I have had away from home.

Would really love to stay again.

Beautiful area and the cottage did not disappoint either. Douglas was a superb and friendly host. Our 2 boys loved the place as we did. Would have no hesitation booking another stay at Sheltered Vale at a future date.

Thank you.

Heerlik! Kinders kon rondhardloop en speel. Dit was beslis die moeite werd om ‘n effense ompad see toe te ry. Ons het lekker gerus en die kinders het heerlik gespeel. Daar is baie interessante goed in die omgewing om te doen.

The silence and breathtaking surroundings were magical This was a pleasant overnight stop. Really could stay there for a week. It was a relaxed evening.

Lieflike akkommodasie met landelike gasvryheid! Die akkommodasie bied waarde vir geld en die gasvryheid deur die eienaars word baie waardeer! Ek sal definitief Sheltered Vale Cottages vir enige reisiger aanbeveel.

Thank you for sharing the beauty that is Sheltered Vale with us this weekend. We had a wonderful time.

Many thanks for providing such a wonderful venue, a well appointed cottage, such great walks and some good birding. All an outdoor weekender needs.

This has to be the nicest place I have stayed in, in the Midlands. Spectacular views from each cottages deck. The two bedrooms where clean and the beds very comfortable. The weekend was cold but we felt very cosy. The manager Doug is friendly and helpful without intruding on your weekend away. He showed us around then left us alone. You have full run of the property which is huge. Very child friendly with lots of space to play.

We really loved our weekend here and will be back soon.

We have stayed at Sheltered Vale Cottages before and loved it. This time I booked out the whole place for my in-laws 50th wedding anniversary. We had a wonderful time and there was plenty of space for the kids to run around and the adults to get together for the rugby. Everyone remarked on the lovely, peaceful views and the friendliness of the host.

Great spot to explore the Midlands Meander and we will be back again.

Mrs Taylor



My stay was fantastic and I enjoyed it very much. I will return again for another stay in future.

Mr Austin



After a particularly stormy day extending our travel time well into the evening, we were glad to be greeted by the luxury and stylish cosiness that is Sheltered Vale Cottages. This is the perfect spot to unwind from the hustle and bustle of the city, just remember to bring your fishing rod. Thanks, Douglas, for a wonderful stay, we hope to see you soon (in trout season)!




Thank you for a lovely time! Thank you for being so friendly and welcoming! It was so peaceful – exactly what we wanted. Thank you!

Angela Marx



Our stay at ‘Sheltered Vale’ was outstanding. We enjoyed a calm and relaxing time in the comfortable, clean and well-organized cottage. As chef (hobby) I appreciated the nice and well-equipped kitchen.

We’ll never forget this beautiful place. Thank you!

Georg Reiff



Just wanted to say thank you for an incredible weekend. We loved the cottage we stayed in very much, it had everything we needed, and your property is really beautiful. We had a great anniversary weekend and relaxed big time.

Nick Andrews



I would like to thank you for the incredible weekend my wife and I got to spend at your establishment. The luxurious accommodation was exactly what we needed after the hustle and bustle of the week. Thanks to the hosts for the personal attention they gave us, it was much appreciated. The fishing was pretty good as well.

We will definitely be back.
