This versatile thatched roofed cottage offers contemporary country comfort with a dash of history. It is one of the two cottages located on the owners property offering its own entrance and private garden. During winter, when you might even encounter snow on the mountains, your very own baby Godin wood burner makes sure you are toasty warm. In summer, guests are invited to use the recently built pool. A five minute walk will get you to the village center.

The space
The Potato Patch is one of the original farm cottages, with typical reed ceilings, clay tiles and thick walls. The cottage consists of lounge/dining room and kitchen plus a double bedroom en-suite. Connected to the cottage are a further two double bedrooms en-suite with their own entrance - ideal for independently coming and going. The basic cost starts with the cottage, its main amenities and one double bedroom. Using a further room is charged extra. The king sized beds can be converted into two singles. The cottage is one of two on the property, each having ample space and privacy.

Guest access
The cottage has its own garden, patio with comfortable garden furniture and ample off street parking.

Other things to note
Most of our guests visit Greyton to escape the rush of the city and sniff country air and absorb country life. At the Potato Patch we support sustainable tourism in an environmentally conscious manner. Since 25 April 2016, we are listed on Eco Atlas for our efforts to reduce our carbon footprint.

Location

Greyton, Western Cape, South Africa

Greyton is said to be the jewel of the Overberg, a village nestled at the foot of the Sonderend mountains and in between two rivers, the Gobos and Sonderend river. Quaint country lanes lined with oak trees and gurgling leiwater channels beg to be explored. 10 restaurants and several quirky shops are worth a visit. The Saturday morning market from 10h00 - 12h00 is not to be missed, especially the lemon curd pancakes and a packet of South Africa's favourite snack, biltong.

Born in England, grew up in South Africa and have German parents. I thoroughly enjoy meeting people of all walk of life perhaps because I have travelled extensively. My motto in life is: a giggle-fix a day keeps the doctor away. When bookless I get awfully edgy, I dabble in art, end up involved in community projects, was a passionate Rotarian until moving to Greyton (no club here) and run my own public relations business having specialized in travel and aviation. I have just recently opened the Potato Patch Self Catering Cottage.
