Warm, friendly hospitality is offered by Charlene and Charles Milner who welcome you to their historic homestead set in a large established garden with 250 year old oak trees.
Natte Valleij is the original land grant of the area and is set idyllically in the foothills of the Simonberg mountains. Originally a well known wine estate and purchased in the late 1960's by the Milner family who turned into a stud farm producing many champion thoroughbred racehorses.
The farm is again producing fine wines.
Vineyard Cottage (sleeps up to 6). 3 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (one with bath and the other with shower). Sitting room, dining room and kitchen. This was the original building on the farm and dates from 1714. It still has the original reed ceilings. It is very private with a patio, outside table and chairs and a braai (BBQ.)
Cellar Cottage (sleeps 2 or 2 adults and 2 children). Double bedroom, sitting room (into which we can put 2 beds for children) kitchen and bathroom, Also very private with patio and outside table and chairs and braai (BBQ).
