Looking out at the view from a cottage snuggled on the side of a hill, sitting in a wood fired hot tub with a glass of wine or one of our craft beers, staring at the mountains is an ideal way to spend time away in the country in our nature reserve

The space
During the course of 2018, a 22km game fence was completed so that the cottages are now part of the game reserve (hence the reason for no pets allowed). Abundant bird life, some blue wildebeest, black and copper springbok are amongst the wildlife that will be your fellow residents during your stay.
An open plan kitchen and living area extends onto a private wooden deck where you can sit with a cup of coffee and relax with beautiful mountain views which stretch for miles while listening to the sounds of busy birds flitting from bush to bush. Each cottage sleeps a maximum of 6 adults comfortably, with all the modern conveniences such as solar power, private braai and hot water and an extra bedroom with 2 single bunk beds.
Advertised Rate is for 2 guests, thereafter additional guests are charged at R250 per person per night to a max of 6 guests in total)

A wood fired hot tub on the deck of the cottage is a perfect place to watch the stars and listen to the sounds of nature.
It is one of 5 exclusive units within our nature reserve - each, unique and offering privacy and memorable experiences. There are 2 cottages on the farms main dam. The third cottage is neatly tucked away behind another hill – this one is called Solitude and that is what it promises. Sundowner is also neatly sited to offer fabulous sunset evenings

Small luxuries of tea/coffee/sugar/olive oil and balsamic vinegar are provided.

There is NO 240V power - the cottages only have 12V power with no plug points. There are 2 USB charging spots, and you can charge laptops and other devices at the restaurant, or pack in a power bank :)

2 bags of wood are supplied to get the hot tub going, as well as firelighters, braai grid and tongs. It is recommended that you bring extra wood for braai, there is wood to be bought at the restaurant as well

Crisp white bedding and towels add a touch of luxury within the rustic farm landscape.

We do not take bookings for Sunday evenings so that weekend guests are able to enjoy the stay till late on a Sunday. Unfortunately, no day visitors allowed
Saggy Stone Pub is located on the farm which is open Wednesday to Sunday from 10am till 4pm - beer tasting, pub lunches and pizzas make it a not-to-be-missed part of your stay

Guest access
There is a viewing deck which sits at the top of the hill from which you can view the rest of the reserve and enjoy sundowners

Other things to note
Access to the cottage is on typical gravel farm roads- it can be rough and uneven, dusty in summer and muddy if it has rained. A normal car can drive to Lookout Cottage but we wouldn't recommend any Ferrari's ;) or sports vehicles.

I am a friendly, energetic person who loves meeting new people. My husband, Adrian, and I run Saggy Stone Brewery and our family fruit farm in the Robertson valley. We love the outdoors and the solitude of Namibia when on holiday
