Acorn Cottage – The Honeymoon Cottage

The Acorn honeymoon cottage in the grounds of the Dunstone manor estate is a beautifully furnished romantic honeymoon one-bedroom cottage with a luxurious en-suite bathroom, a large bright and delicately furnished lounge with fireplace, kitchenette and dining area. Both the bedroom and lounge extend out through large double doors onto a pretty veranda overlooking a garden with plunge pool, mountains and vineyard views.

Framed by a huge mirrored door the romantic and luxurious bathroom has a double ended bath, large shower and double vanities. The bedroom has a king sized bed, luxury linen and mosquito net. The pretty farm style kitchenette in the lounge offers all the facilities you need if you wish to self-cater – oven and induction stove, dish washer, large fridge freezer, mircowave and other appliances, alternatively dine at our restaurant for breakfast or lunch.

The cottage is an idyllic private honeymoon escape for two or an ideal extra room if renting the larger manor house nearby. With a self-catering option it makes the perfect retreat for those looking to spend time relaxing and exploring the winelands. For those who don’t wish to self-cater you can dine or get a takeaway from at our onsite restaurant – The Stone Kitchen. The cottage also has a portable weber braai, enjoy sunset at the small farm dam across the garden – a wonderful spot to enjoy a sun downer and an alfresco dinner.

In summer the cottage offers lots of lovely shade under grand old trees, in winter be warmed by the oven log fire and underfloor heating throughout – an ideal cottage for all seasons.

Please note that the property is located on a working wine farm and daily activities such as pruning and spraying the vines or picking the grapes must continue throughout the year.
