The crooked cottage is situated in a quiet working class area but is a stones throw away from the Midmar dam and midlands meander route. The Meander is home to many local talented artists and crafters. The midlands is rich in history, creativity, open spaces and beautiful places. My personal favourite places in the area are, the farmers market which is situated in the Karkloof. It is rich in local cuisine, fresh produce and wonderful cups of coffee. It is an early Saturday morning market that welcomes all ages and pets. Another personal favourite is Piggley Wiggley. This is a wonderful spot in the heart of the midlands surrounded by vineyards and fields. It is advised to spend a morning here. There are many curio shops, the best pizza around, a nursery, restaurants, brewery, art galleries, and much much more. There is also a host of things for children to do here. I highly recommend a harvest platter breakfast at the Blue Berry Hill restaurant over looking the beautiful valleys and hills of Mooi River. If you are in search of a pampering... Fordoun spa is the best place to go. With highly trained therapists, it is a magical retreat to rejuvenate the soul.

I am an easy going , friendly and kind hostess who likes nothing more than having friends and family in my space. I love pottering in my garden with my dogs around and crafting. I would like you to feel relaxed, at home and happy in the little crooked cottage. As a host I like my guests to feel they have freedom and privacy, but are more than welcome to utilise the pool and garden, and are more than welcome to come into the main house for tea and to use the wifi.I am very happy to provide suggestions of local activities and places to go in the beautiful midlands area.
