A comfortable overnight at Wallovale in Elgin

Nicky and Paul Wallace very kindly put us up in one of their beautiful cottages on Wallovale in Elgin for the night
after the Winter Wine Festival on Friday.  Icy cold outside, warm and comfortable inside. This is a view of their tasting room
We were given a warm welcome by Benjie the spaniel
He loves people and gets lots of attention
The cottage has a good kitchen. They have four cottages available for hire
A comfortable sitting area
And two spacious bedrooms
We chose the Blue one with its football pitch sized bed
And the bathroom has a water wise rain shower
An early morning view over the dam; a crisp sparkling champagne day in Elgin
A huge tree in the grounds
Cattle on the frosted grass. We had a lovely breakfast on the Wallaces' stoep, before heading back to Cape Town and work
A shot from the summer when everyone, including us, loves to visit the farm
and sample the excellent Paul Wallace wines and the great hospitality
Thank you so much Nicky and Paul
The cottages are available for short term hire
