The main bedroom. A bed that has been in our family for four generations inspired me to commission this bed made from wood felled on the farm. A wonderful huge fireplace. Add candle light and a glass of wine for a very pleasant evening....

A farm cottage in the Tsitsikamma vernacular on a working cheese farm. Preferably for two guests but it can accommodate four. The cottage is hand made with most materials coming from the farm. It's off the grid with candles, fireplace and gas.

A farm cottage built in the Tsitsikamma vernacular on a working cheese farm. Preferably for two guests but it can accommodate four. The cottage is hand made with most building materials coming from the farm. The comfortable cottage is aesthetically tasteful and epitomises off the grid living with candles and solar lighting, a large fireplace and gas water heating, cooking and refrigeration as well as rain water supplying all drinking and sanitation needs.

In a world that seems more and more inhumane, Fynboshoek is a space that strives to present a more humane environment. We milk our goats by hand and no machine is involved in our cheese making. This back-to-basics philosophy follows us to the garden from which our restaurant gets its ingredients, our kitchen and the cottage that you can stay in.

It is important to understand that although on a small scale, this is a real working farm - our crowing roosters may wake you, insects may join you in holidaying in Summer, you may hear our vehicle heading at 5am to collect fresh milk to make our mozzarella, halloumi, cheddar and other cheeses etc.

You are welcome to stroll around on the farm. There is a short trail that takes you around the entire farm, part of which will take you through a small patch of forest that we are in the process of rehabilitating to become entirely indigenous.

As alluded to above, we have a restaurant on the farm where you can book a leisurely lunch overlooking our dam and enjoy the produce of the farm with the focus being on our hand made cheeses. A cheese demonstration can also be booked by prior arrangement.

I always welcome my guests personally but respect their privacy after that. If they need anything, my staff or I are available.

I live in one of the most beautiful parts of South Africa. We have a rare combination of sea, forests and mountains. The entire coastline of the Tsitsikamma is a marine park with the famous Otter Trail running along it. The area is for nature lovers but the glamorous Plettenberg Bay and cool Jeffries Bay is less than an hour away if you need a town fix.

You will need your own or a rented car.

I'm very protective of my cottage and am almost reluctant to let it out. Thus, I ask that people be respectful of it and the farm in general.
We use rainwater and have to deal with our own waste and in general, have to co-exist with the environment. Therefore please use resources sparingly and dispose of waste appropriately. As we use a septic tank system, only organic matter should be disposed of via the toilets.

Sadly, the cottage is not child or animal friendly.
The cottage is a non-smoking building. Please smoke outside.
No cooking is allowed in the indoor fireplace.
All light at night is provided by candles. Please be aware and careful.

We arrived on a rainy day and started with lunch on the porch of the main house. There was a fire keeping us warm and multiple courses of food, featuring cheese made on site and veggies grown in the garden. If you don't have time to stay at the cottage, you should plan to come here for lunch! Luckily we booked ahead and had a lovely stay at the cottage, which was well-appointed and super comfortable. All lighting is by candlelight and fire, so plan for a cozy night in reading, playing games, and relaxing. Alje was there to help with any questions we had and he left fresh yogurt, milk, and cheese in the fridge for us. There were only 2 of us, but there is room for 4. Book this and enjoy some time off the grid.

Wow! We can't say enough about how wonderful our stay was at Alje's cottage. Being purposefully without electricity on a farm in the middle of the Tsisikamma was very intriguing to us, but we could not have imagined how truly great it was going to be. Playing board games by candle-light, braai-ing on a perfect patio as the sun was setting, walking/hiking through thick indigenous forest (small patch on Alje's farm), one of the best lunches in recent history, fresh make cheese & breads, fresh milk & yoghurt, vegetables and fruit just plucked from the garden in our cottage's back yard, showering with stored rain-water, reading by candle-light, and seeing the working of small but impressive farm. These are just a sample of the memories that were experienced while staying at Alje's cottage. It was romantic, beautiful, memorable, but it was also was an eye-opener. My wife and I pride ourselves in being more un-plugged than most people, but it was a much needed revelation that we did not know what to do with ourselves when electricity was removed. Why is so much of our life centered around the incessant desire to be in front of a screen? Needless to say, it was refreshing. It was relaxing, it was fun, and it was challenging (in a fun way). Alje himself as a host was a joy and a gracious host. Not to mention he is one of the more impressive people we have met in a long time. Farmer, gardener, cheese-maker, pianist, home designer/builder, bee-keeper, animal husbandry, etc. And that was just from a handful of short conversations. Inspiring! We truly cannot say enough. We're torn on how to review Alje's cottage as we're afraid that if people really knew how wonderful the overall experience was, then it would be booked indefinitely, and we want to make sure to come back. If we were not moving, we would plan a trip here at least once a year. Our only regret was not staying longer.

Wie von Alje beschrieben ist dieses Cottage mit sehr viel Liebe und Sorgfalt gebaut und eingerichtet. Bei abendlichem Kerzenlicht fühlt man sich, als ob die Zeit stehengeblieben wäre. Wirklich ein besonderer Ort. Wir haben es sehr genossen, wenn auch zu kurz. Christoph & Ines

A must! We had such a relaxing time in Alje's beautiful cabin. The fire was on when we arrived and we immediately felt at home. We will be back again without a doubt. Thank you so much.

What a find! A magical cottage. We spent 2 nights at Alje's place and I can see why he and everyone else that stays there loves the cottage so much. Very cosy bedroom and being winter we used the hot water bottles and extra blankets that were provided. One can also close the shutters giving you an extra few hours sleep if wanted. Kitchen is very well equipped and has a beautiful view out over the vegetable patch. The comfy couches and fireplace were the best though, definitely the perfect spot to unwind and reconnect. I also highly recommend the cheese lunch it was Amazing! Thank you Alje...

Get out of the city, realize you don't need so much "stuff" enjoy the stars enjoy being cuddled up at the fire place. Was an amazing place just to chill and a great base camped to go off exploring from. Lakka

Stunning cottage which has clearly been built with love. Quaint and charming decor, no electricity allows you to switch off and relax completely. The fire makes it cosy. Great location for exploring Tsitsikamma area. Lunch of Fynbos cheeses and organic homegrown produce was delicious too. Thanks Alje for your hospitality

I am a farmer and cheesemaker, curious about almost everything and love food, music, travel, history, cultures, literature, being in nature and much more. Although the cottage is on a farm and therefore secluded, it is very much part of the farm life - it is in the vegetable gar…
