There are 4 self-catering cottages on the Thornville Farm just outside McGregor. Perfectly situated on the road between Robertson and McGregor, our cottages are ideal for that weekend getaway or family holiday.

Fossil Hills Cottage

Up on the hillside with great views over the farm and valley, Fossil Hills Cottage is a cozy stone cottage with thatched roof. As one frazzled parent proposes, “I could watch my kids cycling for hours on the many farm tracks below us.” Maybe you should follow suit and earn some well-deserved R&R on the covered stoep.

It is a heaven for those who can indigenous the Karoo in a private nature  reserve. Our mountainous scenery owes much of its rugged charm to the Paleozoic sedimentary rocks, dating back to 355 million years ago.

This valley can be visited through out the year as each season reveals a gloriously secret beauty, specially  for bird watching, hiking, fishing, picnics, cycling and resting. Enjoy tranquil surroundings and real farm peacefulness.
