Two Rustic Cottages

The two rustic cottages, Wagtail and Tortoise are a stone’s throw from the Swartvlei Lagoon and Kingfisher Drive boat launch, in a perfect area for holidaymakers looking to enjoy Sedgefield's incredible natural beauty.

Apart from a few minor differences the rustic cottages are virtually mirror images of each other.

  • Both cottages comfortably sleep up to four people. 
  • It is a short walk to the boat launch on the lagoon and easy walking distance to the river-mouth. 
  • Both cottages have conveniently situated outdoor built-in braais.
  • Both have TV’s but you need to bring your own decoders and smartcards.
  • Alarm systems are installed in both cottages.
  • There are no washing machines in the cottages so laundry must either be done by hand or use made of the laundrettes in town.
  • No towels are supplied  
  • 3 night stay minimum

Rustic Cottages - Wagtail Cottage

A single advantage of Wagtail Cottage is that the thick hedge of indigenous greenery that offers the residents privacy from the road opens in a spot in front of the house to reveal a magnificent view of the Swartvlei Lagoon all the way to the river mouth.

For bird lovers, these indigenous thickets provide protection and food for a host of birds like Southern Boubous, Cape Robin-Chats, White-eyes, Sombre Bulbuls, Cape Bulbuls, Burchell's Coucal, Klaas's Cuckoo, Diderick Cuckoo, Bar-throated Apalis, Bokmakerie, Black-headed Oriole and several types of sunbirds. This is not an exhaustive list!
