The Loft Room @ Craigrossie is a self-catering space for two on Craigrossie Game Farm, 8 km (3kms on a good gravel road) outside of Clarens en route to Golden Gate. The fully self-contained space has a large loft room with views over the dams & mountains, a double bed with 100% cotton bedding, bathroom and a kitchenette downstairs. We offer DSTV premium, free WiFi and provide tea, coffee and kitchen essentials like spices & olive oil. Bring your own rod to enjoy catch & release trout fishing.

The space
The Loft Room is part of our house on Craigrossie Game Farm. The space comprises the loft, which is the bedroom, bathroom and sitting area and a small kitchenette. The loft has wonderful views over the dams and surrounding mountains; even the bathroom has a great view! In case there is absolutely nothing on TV, there is a DVD player in room; please bring your own DVDs to watch if you would like. For the chilly winter months there is a heater in the Loft Room, plenty of blankets, an electric blanket and a winter weight feather duvet on the bed to keep things warm and cozy. For your comfort, the Loft Room also has an air conditioner which can be used to cool or heat the space.

There is a mini oven with two plates, a microwave, kettle, toaster and Nespresso machine in the kitchen as well as a fridge freezer. We provide 6 coffee pods for the Nespresso machine for each weekend stay; you are welcome to bring along your own as well.

We do a thorough clean after every guest, but the Loft Room does not have a daily cleaning service. If you intend to stay for 4 days or more, please let us know and we will make arrangements to service the space.

In case of power outages or load shedding (hopefully not!) we have gas facilities available for cooking and heating.

Please note that we do have dogs; a German Shepherd and a dachshund.
