We had a wonderful stay at libertas house. The cottage was well kitted out. The rooms spacious and all en suite. The view across the valley was beautiful. Lots of attention to detail. Highly recommend.

“We have recently had the most wonderful, relaxing stay at Libertas with our 2 adult sons and family. Everything is beautifully appointed, comfortable beds with lovely white linen and what a beautiful environment. The views from the cottage down the valley are stunning and there are also beautiful scenic drives in the Elgin area. Libertas House is equipped with security beams for outside, an alarm, and a remote for the farmgate all of which we used as advised.
There are also three quaint little individual cottages, Lavender Cottages, on the farm. They look equally enticing and each one has its own private patio and garden with beautiful views of the orchards and the valley”.
It was a pleasure having you and your family to stay...so glad you had a relaxing happy time ...hope to see you again soon regards Karin B
We have stayed at Lavender Cottages twice in the past 18 months - once in one of the cottages and once at their Libertas House - which caters for a larger number of guests.
It was just wonderful and we loved every minute of the beautiful surroundings and staying in the pretty country-style cottages. It is a typical farm-stay with all the amenities provided for and space for children to play. The owners are lovely people who take the time and effort to ensure that all is in place in the cottages and they ensure that you enjoy staying on their farm. Superb views and nothing like waking up to the peace and quiet only available in the country. We would definitely return.
Thank you...am so glad you enjoyed your stay with us...we enjoyed having you here and look forward to seeing you again.
We stayed at lavender cottages and we were very disappointed. The cottages are extremely rustic and basic - not suitable for children. As per the previous post the security is questionable. They have a security gate that doesn't need to be opened to get in, you can just walk round the side.
So sorry that you did not like the cottage.
The side entrance at the gate is to allow pedestrians to walk in.
Please see our review on Andy's post about other Security concerns.
Had guests stay here for a wedding. Robbed at knife and gunpoint at 2 am by organised gang who took everything from overseas guests.....No word was made to us from the owner about numerous recent attacks in the area.
Security was completely substandard. The property being close to the main road is especially unprotected.
The recent crime in the valley is of great concern to everyone...
We all subscribe to Farmwatch, security companies and the Police.
We do advise guests - and we did advise Andy's guests at Libertas house - when they came to collect their keys to use the alarm systems in place.
Libertas house has a security gate at the entrance to the farm - all guests are given a remote to open the gate.
The house has beams outside, and alarm inside ......
There are clear written instructions at the front door and security pad as to how to activate the alarm.
Guests arriving back from a function in the early hours are not always alert and fail to activate the alarm.
We do understand the distress of the guests and feel awful for them.
They did use the alarm on occasion but admitted they did not activate the alarm that particular night.
Unfortunately no security is going to work if it is not activated.
We hear this is a general problem at accommodations establishments.
Libertas House was everything we expected and more. Situated overlooking the beautiful Elgin Valley, as a family we thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay and would love to return again to this French-styled cottage in a very beautiful part of South Africa.
So glad you liked it - hope to see you soon!
