Elephant Cottage – beautiful country retreat

Elephant Cottage is a lovingly restored 3 bedroom house situated in the town of Porterville in the Western Cape. Only 140km’s from Cape Town.

The house is within walking distance of restaurants, shops and amenities in this beautiful country town which is nestled at the foot of the Olifants Mountains.

The area has so much to offer – nearby wine estates for some wine tasting, a local craft brewery that serves amazing pizzas alongside their delicious beers, hikes, fishing, mountain bike trails, the Groot Winterhoek wilderness area in the mountains, the rare Disa flower and more. Porterville is a paragliding mecca and annually hosts many local and international paragliders during the warm summer months.

The house itself is comfortable and cozy, with a fireplace (kagel) in the kitchen that can also be used as a braai in the cold winter months as well as a free standing braai for the warmer days. A kitchen table is the perfect spot for games with the kids or a glass of wine by the fire. Alternatively relax on the front stoep and watch the world go by at country pace. There are 3 bedrooms, each with 2 single beds.

The property is fenced and secure.
