Welcome to Candlewood Cottage
Candlewood Cottage (a non-smoking Cottage) sleeping two only and set in splendid isolation on the plot next door to the Armagh Country Lodge has been a dream waiting to happen for Johan and Marion.
This is the absolute ultimate in privacy and peace offering the tranquillity and stillness most of us crave and really need to soothe our souls.
The ability to sit still in silence and absorb the very quietude of the setting is what is on offer here.
The Cottage will be available from 15 November 2008 and already the Bookings are flowing in.
It is designed in such a way that it capitalizes on the views of the fynbos, forest, and the Tsitsikamma Mountain range.
The deck is extra wide so that one can sling that hammock and enjoy the bird song while reading that long postponed novel purchased aeons ago for just this very moment.
Inside the Cottage we have installed a wide screen T V, DVD/CD player with surround sound; there is a log fireplace for those cooler days and Aircon for the heat - although double insulation will ensure comfort all year round. Squishy armchairs face the fire for those days and nights when one just cannot move! A well-stocked fridge with cool drinks and a selection of wines - red, white and bubblies is part of the mini-kitchen (as we are fully licensed it is appreciated that only our drinks be consumed on the premises).
The bed is an extra length king-sized, firm but comfy, zone, dressed in the very finest percale linen enveloping the lightest pure duck down duvets. Lying in bed the full vista of fynbos, forest and mountains is spread in front of ones eyes as the French doors are situated straight opposite the bed! And we haven’t mentioned the pure unpolluted air inducing bygone deep baby day sleeps!!
The dressing room is spacious enough to take care of the contents of any suitcase; the bathroom has a walk in shower, a bath built for two designed so that one can laze and gaze out with double doors flung wide - and perhaps (definitely) even that glass of bubbly in hand!
A continental Breakfast can be spirited onto one’s deck or a full English (Irish!) Breakfast can be enjoyed at the Armagh a mere stroll away past the salt-water swimming Pool. Dinner a’ la Carte style in Rafters @ the Armagh will take care of the evening.
Straight opposite the Candlewood Cottage is the Fynbos Reserve where one can take a 30-minute stroll inhaling the wonderful aromas of many diverse plants – some quite rare.
The new Tsitskamma Mountain Spa will further enhance your well-being and you can return to the fray a calm and restored person ready again for the cut and thrust of working life.
