Fieldmouse Cottage - Visual Tour

PLEASE be patient while it loads: detailed pics are worth it

Fieldmouse cottage is a LUXURY level cottage. Please see the  detailed facilities here.

It is the middle of the 5 cottages at Forest Edge, yet with a private feel and wild-life and bird-life sightings due to proximity to indigenous Sanparks forest.

This cottage is very popular with luxury honeymooners, twitching bird-lovers or especially larger nature-loving families as it has the jungle gym and bonfire area and a large garden area nearby. In addition, it also has a en-suite shower in the main bedroom from August 2016.

The below interior and exterior photos of Fieldmouse were taken since OCT 2013. Gardens change; linen etc get changed or upgraded, so this is meant to be representative. Guest photos are acknowledged in the hover-over.

*** IMPORTANT: Please note that we do NOT under any circumstances guarantee a specific cottage where there are more than one available in a specific cottage class. You are welcome to indicate your first and second choice as we obviously want to make you happy where we can, but it is impossible to place all guests in the cottage they want, if it happens to be the same cottage! A shift to a different cottage may be necessitated in the case of an unforseen operational challenge like a burst geyser, for example.
