Langhoogte Farm is an off-grid farm situated in the picturesque mountains some 25 kilometers (11km on tar and 14km on gravel) outside the town of Montagu.
The Malachite Kingfisher cottage is a renovated 100+ year-old stone self-catering cottage with a whole lot of charm and character, adjacent to the main farmhouse on Two Dam Sustainable.
Here you can truly unwind in a tranquil environment, far from the everyday bustle. Enjoy the tranquillity of a camp fire and a glorious night sky and listen out for the distinctive rasping call of the leopard. Ideal for a couple wanting to get away for a romantic break or even a family, as there are two small sleeper couches in the lounge for the young ones (additional rates apply). The fully equipped kitchen has a two-plate gas stove, bar fridge and tea and coffee available. All linen, towels and bedding is provided. In line with our ethos to minimize our ecological impact, we supply biodegradable guest amenities and dish-washing liquid.
Sleeps: 2 adults & 2 children
