Braeside Country Cottage

A beautiful private guest farm near Tarkastad in the Eastern Cape. Enjoy the peace, tranquility and sense of oneness with nature on a private guest farm near Tarkastad – only a 3 hour drive from Port Elizabeth and East London. Braeside Country Cottage is a farm house situated right on the edge of the Tarkastad River, surrounded by luscious Lucerne lands. The farm is a sheep and cattle farm and has various buck species in the scenic Winterberg Nature Conservancy. It is at the foot of the magnificent Winterberg mountain range – ideal for hikers, walkers, cyclists and fishermen. However, if hunting is more your “game”, we have guided safaris for more than 20 years in the Eastern Cape and beyond and are confident that we have the infrastructure and experience to make your stay a memorable one.
