Otter's Bend




Otter’s Bend offers two lovely cottages and a garden flatlet.
The cottages are nestled on the edge of a dam with panoramic views over vineyards to the Langeberg Mountains.
They are spacious, comfortable and fully equipped with all mod cons.
We cater for couples, groups and families with children. Also available is a twin bedded garden flatlet ideal for a couple.

Situated on a wine and fruit farm, in the beautiful Breede River Valley, the serene and peaceful surroundings encourage guests to relax and unwind after a day of visiting the many attractions of the area. The dam is available for swimming, boating or paddle skiing. The Breede River is within easy walking distance. Bird watching is a popular pastime

Otter’s Bend is only 14 kms from the supermarkets and restaurants of Bonnievale and is the perfect base for excursions to the popular wine cellars of the valley, as well as day visits to Swellendam, Montagu, Robertson and McGregor.
