Watermill Farm Guest Cottages is a self-catering accommodation situated on a tranquil farm overlooking the Rooiberg Mountain range and conservancy area. The farm is located 3 km away from the village of Van Wyksdorp in the Little Karoo region, off the R62 highway. It offers four fully equipped cottages, each featuring a kitchen, living area, bedroom(s), bathroom, braai area, and views of either the dam or the gardens.

The cottages are constructed with dung floors and hand-made mud-brick walls, plastered with earth and then whitewashed. Each cottage is uniquely decorated with local antique furnishings and dung floors that provide a warm and soft surface to step on. Watermill Farm Guest Cottages is well-suited for nature lovers, plant enthusiasts, and bird watchers as the property features a diverse habitat of flora and fauna. Guests can enjoy lovely walks on and around the property, as well as swim in the dam.

All the cottages operate off the grid, relying on solar energy and receiving fresh mountain water. Firewood is available for purchase on the property, along with fresh produce (depending on availability). Ladismith is 47 km away, Riversdale is 74 km away, and Mossel Bay is 119 km away. The nearest airport is George Airport, which is 159 km from Watermill Farm Guest Cottages.

The Lavender Cottage, one of the offerings, reflects old-world charm and can accommodate two guests. It features a double brass u201au00c4u00f2Hemel bedu201au00c4u00f4 in the bedroom and an antique stinkwood three-quarter bed in the living area that doubles as a day bed. The small second bedroom has been converted into a bathroom with a shower. Creature comforts include a 3-plate gas burner for cooking, gas hot water, and candlelight for evening illumination. Solar lighting and refrigeration have been added for comfort, and a Welcome Dover stove in the original hearth provides warmth during winter. This cozy and romantic cottage is a comfortable gem.
