The Milking Parlour is named after the cow shed which was converted into a very spacious modern, cosy and comfortable guest house. It consists of three bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living area and kitchen. Fully equipped with linen and towels, it is self catering, but meals can be arranged at an extra cost.
The cottage has the most wonderful views down into the valley, and if you are an early bird, what better than to watch the sunrise while having that first early morning ‘cuppa’ on the patio.
Bird watching is most rewarding in this part of the Eastern Cape and you might be lucky enough to spot the colourful Knysna Loerie or even the Crowned, Martial and Fish eagles which breed in the area.
