Faraway Cottage

  • 4 guests
  • 2 bedrooms
  • 2 bathrooms

Tanagra is an idyllic wine farm close to McGregor and part of the Robertson Wine Route and Route 62, producing handcrafted wines and Grappa as well as Eau de Vie. Faraway is a 2-bedroom eco cottage built on the most solitary spot on the farm – just fynbos, mountains, endless skies, and silence. 

Check-in: 15h00 | Check-out: 11h00

Minimum stay 2 nights required (1 night stays on request)


The cottage is designed to allow for unobstructed and sweeping views from every room and corner. There is cellphone reception but no WiFi.  The cottage combines the traditional features of a Cape Langhuis with an eco-friendly (off the grid) and modern design, with large panorama windows and doors.


The master bedroom features a king size bed (extra bed available on request for accompanying child, at an extra fee) and ceiling fan. The en-suite bathroom includes toilet, bath (with a view!) and shower.

The 2nd bedroom features 2 single/ twin beds (extra bed available on request for accompanying child, at an extra fee) and ceiling fan. The en-suite bathroom includes a toilet and shower.


The lounge has an open fireplace (with starter set of wood & firelighters, extra wood available for fee) and gas heater for cold nights. Outdoors is a private plunge pool (unheated and not fenced), a large and shaded stoep with deck chairs and a sofa as well as a braai area.

The fully equipped kitchen features a freezer/ fridge combination, gas stove and a camping toaster (for gas stove).


Rest and unwind with a good book and a glass of wine in the garden or on your stoep, and explore the farm for walks or to watch birds in abundance. Tanagra farm is 78ha in size and for most parts accessible by various walking/ hiking trails (also great for mountain-biking), ranging from a leisurely 10 minutes' walk to a couple of hours' hike with access into the Vrolijkheid Nature Reserve. If you wish to be more active, there are a variety of activities to pursue in the area.

There is an honesty bar with Tanagra wines.
