The Carraighs

The Carraighs is a comfortable modern yet rustic cottage with a swimming pool, overlooking the indigenous forest in a quiet and beautiful setting, in The Crags, near Plettenberg Bay. The forest setting encourages a multitude of birds and buck and guinea fowl and other small forest animals are frequently sighted.

The Carraighs has a wooden deck overlooking the sparkling swimming pool, farmlands, indigenous forest and the Tsitsikamma Mountains. The view is really extraordinary! There is one bedroom with a double bed downstairs, full bathroom, self-catering kitchen, and an open-plan living room/dining room area with a sofa bed in the living room.

The loft bedroom which is upstairs, has a double bed and two single beds, as well as a couch and coffee table! Another wooden deck upstairs, overlooks the stunning view. There is an outside staircase from the loft bedroom to the main cottage and no bathroom upstairs, so this room is suitable for teenagers or young adults but not for small children on their own.

  • No smoking allowed. No pets allowed. Maximum 5 guests.
  • Check-in 2 – 6pm Check-out 10 am


We have a sparkling swimming pool, and lovely (if steep!) forest walks on the property. The cottage is fully equipped for self-catering with a stove and oven, microwave and tea, coffee and the basic essentials provided. There is also a fan and a heater in both rooms to ensure your comfort throughout the year. Linen and towels are provided.There is DSTV and free Wi-Fi.  There is also a private BBQ area behind the cottage.

The owners, Mike and Toni live on the property as well, with their three dogs. The cottage is completely separate, and has safe off-street parking. The dogs are friendly, and they are fenced in.  However, please be careful with young children and we do not have a fence around our pool so, as a precaution, we ask you to take great care. We do not allow pets. You're also welcome to pick organic herbs from our garden to enjoy with your food.
