Matekula Country Retreat

Radish Cottage is a carefully renovated farmhouse and is one of the original houses on this property. It is situated at the bottom of the valley and is the first house as one enters through the gatehouse. It overlooks the valley but is set in a treed and slightly sheltered and private location with views through the surrounding trees looking down the valley. There is a dam directly below the cottage. Radish is a very comfortable house with four double bedrooms (sleeps eight) and four bathrooms, an open plan sitting room and dining area next to a very well equipped kitchen. There are fires in the sitting room and bedrooms, the bathrooms are well appointed and modern and the whole house is decorated and furnished to a very high standard. The furniture in the living rooms and bedrooms is best quality and the excellent beds and linen will ensure that your stay will be as relaxing and as comfortable as it can be.

The kitchen is extremely well built and equipped too. A couple of fridges and freezers ensure you will always have enough cool space for your food, even if you are staying for the whole week, a microwave, a gas hob and electric oven, lots of shelf space, a useful central island and well laid out surfaces mean that if cooking and eating well on holiday are your thing, this kitchen is a pleasure to use. The sitting and dining rooms are next to and open into the kitchen so when cooking and preparing meals one is still part of the party. There is a solidly constructed braai outside near the verandah and firewood is provided.

Radish Cottage is extremely comfortable and well equipped and a stay here is just the tonic for a break from the bustle of city life. One can do as much or as little as one wants but the surroundings, location and accommodation will ensure a totally relaxing and rejuvenating stay.
