The Potter’s Shed

This Potter’s Shed’s rustic eco friendly, recycled charm, its quirky ceramic pot displays and generous private outdoor living spaces promise guests a restful getaway experience away from the busy town lifestyle.  This self-catering unit accommodates two to four guests comfortably.  Tranquil evenings spent around the private crackling fire pit, the aroma of that steak on the braai,  stories around the fire  amongst special family or friends may bring back a fond memory or create a new one.

Cool off in cold water plunge pool –  the large double lounger cushioned for extra comfort invites that  late afternoon snooze. Always a great hit is our one of a kind outdoor shower.   The abundant bird life,  the wind passing through a bush clump of indigenous trees, just enjoying the peace and views nature bringing an end to your perfect day at the Potter’s Shed.
