Petersfield Mountain Cottages
Citrusdal, West Coast - Accommodation
ESTABLISHMENT OVERVIEW:Petersfield Mountain Cottages is a working citrus and Rooibos tea farm overlooking the town of Citrusdal in the Cederberg area. Situated 170 km from Cape Town on the N7 it takes only one hour and forty-five minutes to reach Petersfield.
The farm is situated only five kilometers from Citrusdal so it is very convenient for guests to nip into town for shopping or to sample fare from some of the fourteen restaurants and coffee shops on offer. Citrusdal is towered over by the mighty Cederberg Mountains and is the closet town to that wilderness area where guests can hike and view ancient rock art.
There are four mountain cottages on Petersfield, all set extremely privately in a 2000-hectare wilderness reserve of pristine fynbos and still teeming with indigenous wildlife.

De Kom has two bedrooms and a sleeper couch to accommodate 6 guests. Double French doors lead onto the veranda for outdoor dining next to the private plunge pool and braai area. From the pool the breathtaking view is down the valley and onto the impressive Cederberg Mountains.
