About us

OWL Cottage is situated on the southern edge of the Woodbush Forest.

On their beautiful 4 hectare piece of heaven in Magoebaskloof Phil and Tig have created a haven for birders. There are water features and bird feeders that attract a variety of birds to the gardens around the cottage. You may see Bronze and Redbacked Mannikins and African Firefinch. The flowering shrubs attract a variety of Sunbirds and some beautiful butterflies. This is arguably one of the best places to see the Cape Parrot as up to 30 at a time may come to feed on the Pecan nut trees in the winter. The Purple Crested and Knysna Turacos call from the indigenous forest and it is not unusual to see a flash of crimson as they glide through the trees.



Accommodation is in three spacious bedrooms one of which has three beds and so we can sleep 7 in comfort. There are two bathrooms and a large fully fitted kitchen and a sitting/dining room. Everything is provided for your convenience, all linen, crockery and cutlery. You need only bring your food and drink and come and relax. Outside there is a covered patio and seating for 6, there is a kettle braai and a firepit. We have lots of wood and provide you with some nice logs for your fire. There is a small swimming pool.
Owl Cottage is run by warm birder friendly hosts.
