Arum Lily Cottage: Cosy Cabin in the Heart of Wolseley

The Arum Lily Cottages are tucked away in the heart of Wolseley, located 90 minutes from Cape Town. 6 Wooden cabins of various sizes surround the large, farm dam in the corner of two mountains.

Last Autumn, my family and I drove through to the cozy cabin for a night away under the stars. I made a large pot of beef osso bucco while my brother provided a number of special red wines. We spent the night playing Cards Against Humanity while dining outside in the fresh mountain air.

We LOVED our stay at Arum Lily Cottages and highly recommend the cabins to couples or friends. I recommend going in a larger group as there is ample space and having company makes it feel all the more special.

Arum Lily Cottage GTP 5 “C” Review

Here’s my top 5 travel “C” that impact my stay at any hotel:

  1. Charging Stations
  2. Comfortable Bed
  3. Cleanliness
  4. Cupboard Space
  5. Conveniences

Here’s how the Arum Lily Cottages scored:

Charging Stations

MORE than enough space and plugs for us to charge our cameras, phones and laptops.

Comfortable Bed

Very clean linen and mosquito nets to ensure you are not annoyed all through the night. The bed was of ample size in the large bedroom upstairs. Downstairs had a smaller double bed and 2 single beds.

 

Cleanliness

The cabin was fully kitted out with everything one would need to cook at the venue as well as being very clean. I don’t like to see any traces of previous guests, the cabin was perfectly clean and I was satisfied with the upkeep.

Cupboard Space

There was MORE than enough for our bags including space on the bathroom counter for all my toiletries and makeup. I really do find it inconvenient if I can’t have my personal items at an arm’s length away.

Conveniences

This cabin had a fully kitted out kitchen, including a large fridge, which had enough space for us to keep our groceries and precooked meals. I do like to have a refrigerator in my accommodation as I drink a lot of sparkling water. The kitchen was more than kitted out with literally, absolutely everything available EXCEPT – roller towel! Other than that, it was fully equipped.
