Soak up the sounds of silence in my one-bedroom garden cottage with its rustic repurposed furnishings and calming, quirky touches, whilst enjoying the delightful ambience of our quiet country village. Doors lead out from the cosy kitchen and living area into a shady dappled garden with abundant birdlife. An outdoor seating area, small braai and hammock beckon, promising a hidden escape from the world, with fabulous wineries and restaurants on your doorstep.

El alojamiento
Monk's Cottage is tucked away in a shady corner at the bottom of my property, situated in the quiet top area of McGregor. Benefitting from the peace and privacy of the "quiet" area of town, but within easy walking distance of the main road.
Guests have their own access and complete privacy. Surrounded by fruit and olive trees, indigenous plants and herbs, the cottage has been decorated with calm and serenity in mind, with repurposed items salvaged from local farms and villages – a rustic retreat and detox from the world. There is a kitchen/living area with an indoor fireplace, leading into the comfortable en-suite bedroom with electric blanket, hypo-allergenic duvet and pillows, 100% cotton percale linen and extra blankets for cold McGregor nights. Luxury Charlotte Rhys toiletry amenities are provided, as well as coffee, tea and other essentials.
NOTE: DUE TO DROUGHT AND REGIONAL WATER RESTRICTIONS, SWIMMING POOL MAY NOT BE FULL, AND GARDEN IS SOMEWHAT DRY. Thank you for understanding these conditions which are beyond our control.

Acceso para huéspedes
Private access. Off the living area is an outdoor barbeque and seating area leading to a plunge pool. The pool is shared with guests from the second cottage (Kismet) on the premises, if both are booked.
Both cottages may be hired for a larger group.

Otros aspectos destacables
McGregor is in a water-scarce region, and at present we are recovering from a severe drought. Guests are requested to use water mindfully and sparingly, until such time as our dams are replenished.
My space is intended as a retreat from the world, and such we do not have radio or television, and we request guests to respect the quiet nature of the environment.
WiFi is available, however there is little to no cell phone reception.

McGregor, Provincia Occidental del Cabo, Sudáfrica

The village of McGregor is literally situated on "the road to nowhere" – 20km from Robertson along a good tar road, at the foot of the Riviersonderend mountains (river without an end). With its traditional whitewashed, thatched cottages set in quiet streets, surrounded by mountains, wildlife, and wine estates, McGregor is a quiet jewel boasting some of the best preserved examples of mid-nineteenth century townscape in the Western Cape.
McGregor is renown for its holistic lifestyle and healers, and boasts spas, retreats, acupuncturists and a variety of alternative practitioners. It is home to many artists, with galleries, studios and potters in residence.
Our main road is home to wonderful craft shops, restaurants and eateries, so if eating-in is not your style, treat yourself at one of our fabulous restaurants.
We are also situated in the Robertson Wine Valley, with exceptional vineyards and award-winning wineries on our doorstep. Indulge in a bottle or two of the good stuff to make your stay complete!
Our region is rich in hiking and mountain biking trails, horse-riding, river rafting and other outdoor activities. Our donkey sanctuary is worth a visit, as are our local art galleries and studios. We also have a local movie theatre, poetry recitals and all sorts of other interesting things going on, so be sure to check in with me for the village news.
Time tends to stand still here, and many a resident may scratch their head and think for a moment before figuring out what day of the week it is. We invite you to make the most of your rural retreat and go back to your real life recharged, refreshed and re-energised.

I've lived in McGregor for over 20 years, and love the peace, quiet and tranquility. You'll often find me pottering about in the garden or kitchen, catching up with locals and visitors, and volunteering at our local animal shelter. I'm a retired aromatherapist and reiki healer, and until recently ran Frangipani on McGregor main road. You may bump into me at a local auction, and I have a passion for repurposing salvaged odds and ends.

Durante tu estancia
I live on the premises with my small dog, and guests can choose as little or as much interaction with me as they please. I've lived in McGregor for many years – very happy to share some advice/wisdom/local tales/war stories!
