Cashel Cottage Self Catering Accommodation In The Crags

Nestled in the foothills of the Tsitsikamma Mountains, Cashel Cottage is the perfect place to relax and explore the many delights of The Crags, Plettenberg Bay, Natures Valley and the Garden Route. The farm boasts a network of well-maintained trails through fynbos and forest, two large freshwater dams and an abundance of birdlife. The private, self-contained cottage is an easy drive to many stunning beaches and animal sanctuaries, with numerous adventure activities to be enjoyed in the area.

The accommodation
This charming private cottage sleeps 6 people comfortably. It has 3 bedrooms, one with a double bed and two with twin beds. There is a well-equipped kitchen for self-catering, a bathroom with shower, and an open-plan lounge and dining area with a wood burning fireplace for the colder wintry days. The spacious outdoor patio area and braai/fire-pit overlook the lily-fringed farm dams and mountains.

On the property: to do
The extensive freshwater dams on the property are fed by natural springs. A refreshing swim on a hot summers day is a must; for the fishing enthusiast, Bass fishing is an option to while away the day. A canoe and other watercraft are available to paddle around the dams. Paths meander through the fynbos and forest, a delight for the avid birdwatcher.

The neighbourhood:

  • Animal sanctuaries: Jukani Wildlife Sanctuary, Monkeyland, Lawnwood Snake Sanctuary, Birds of Eden, The Elephant Sanctuary, and Tenikwa Wildlife Sanctuary.
  • The Puzzle Park is a fun visit for the children.
  • Beaches: Natures Valley and Keurboomstrand are a short drive away.
  • Adventure activities: Bloukrans Bungee Jump, Canyoning with AfriCanyon, Black-water tubing on the Storms River, Tsitsikamma Canopy Tour zip lines and Hog Hollow Horse Trails. For the mountain-bike, hiking or trail-running enthusiast, the farm is situated in an area full of exciting exploring opportunities and trails.
  • The Mill Centre and Peppermill Café showcases local art and craft and provides a delicious pit-stop for the hungry.
  • The Barnyard Theatre hosts visiting artists
  • The Crags Winelands showcase local wine and champagne produced on the neighbouring farms, with tasting rooms and tapas restaurants for a lazy lunch.
  • Kurland Estate hosts Polo tournaments from December to April, and Katarina's restaurant is open for al fresco dining.
  • Plettenberg Bay is close enough to enjoy the many restaurants, shops and beaches for swimming and surfing. Whale and dolphin watching tours, sailing and fishing trips can be arranged in the town.

Why the $elect Stays initiative?

  1. Encourage and boost local tourism through making holidays more affordable.
    This is achieved by offering locals a 15% saving. The same 15% that would have left our shores had it been paid as commission to an International Booking site.
  2. Reduce the dependancy on large International Booking sites.
    This is achieved by building up a loyal following of verified users who we will market to on an exclusive and regular basis to maximise the opportunity.
  3. Ensure more money stays within local tourism to benefit us all.
    It is no secret that the large International Booking sites pay no or very little tax to South Africa or Namibia. By taking back a little more control we boost our own economy, and in particular, our local tourism. This is good for us all.
    Read this article on how the Australian holiday accommodation sector is suffering in the same way.
  4. Exclusive.
    Only listings on Stays can participate, which means less competition for bookings.
How it works for accommodation-seekers:

Anyone can register as a $elect Stays member.
There are no costs involved to register as a member.
On registration, we issue them with a member number.
They use their member number when they send an enquiry.
The number is verified automatically BEFORE the enquiry is sent.
The property is notified on the enquiry that they are a verified member.
Property ensures that the quote includes a 15% saving.

Terms & Conditions

  1. The property (you) must offer the 15% saving to all verified members
  2. Verification is done automatically at the time of an enquiry. It is at the property’s discretion whether to offer the saving for a telephonic enquiry. (As you have no means to verify the membership number, it is advisable to get them to do a formal enquiry so they can be verified).
  3. If the property is currently running a "Special" greater than 15% then the "Special" price will apply. (No further savings needs to be offered). EXCEPT in the case where the "Special" is lower than 15%. In that case the 15% will apply.
    Example: A property offering a 10% discount, must offer an additional 5% discount to valid members - so they get a total 15% saving.
  4. The property must offer valid members the saving all year round. (Properties that pick and chose in which seasons to participate run the risk of being removed from the programme completely. Allowing selective participation defeats the integrity of this initiative).
  5. The property must not inflate the price before the 15% is applied. Prices displayed should be the rack rate. (The official or advertised price of a room).
  6. The property must honour any bookings made while the property was participating as a $elect Stays property.
  7. The property must honour the agreement and the spirit in which the initiative is designed to benefit local tourism.
