Citrusdal – Petersfield
If you ever want to treat your faithful companion to a wonderful secluded getaway in the mountains where he can feel free of the restrictions that city life imposes, then visit us here at Petersfield in Citrusdal. Petersfield is less than 2 hour’s drive from Cape Town on the N7 and offers pets and their owners three secluded mountain cottages set 2 km apart in total privacy.
All cottages have their own plunge pools and fire places. The cottages, set on a working citrus and Rooibos tea farm of 2,500 hectares, allow ample opportunity for visitors to hike up the mountains, swim or row in the farm dam, or to try our relatively easy 4×4 track. Our mountains, overlooking the Cederberg, boast beautiful fynbos and the freedom to walk and explore this magnificent pristine private wilderness.
