What Our Guests Say

Rusty Gate is a great getaway for large or small groups, only a short drive from the city. We have been fortunate to visit many times over the years, for various occasions, to experience the wonder of nature and the outdoors. With recent renovations to the chalets and main area by the new hosts Anchen and Bokkie, they have some how managed to improve on an already amazing venue! From zip lining and paddling on the dam, mountain hikes, celebrations or quiet sundowners by the fire – Rusty Gate is and always will be one of our favourite local spots!

Calley & Claire - January 2020

Rusty Gate never fails to provide the peace and tranquillity that one demands from a break away “from it all”. We have been coming to Rusty Gate for a few years now and always come away from our stay feeling well rested, relaxed and rejuvenated. The children love getting back to nature and enjoying the outdoors. The dam provides lots of fun activities for all to enjoy. The new owners are welcoming and have done magnificent improvements to the cottages to ensure your stay is a luxurious and comfortable one. Rusty Gate is a true gem that is worth the stay to get away and recharge.

Belinda Backwell - January 2020

Rusty Gate is one of the best kept secrets in the Western Cape. Comfortable and clean, centrally located just of the beaten track, but out of the rush, with unbelievable natural beauty. The cottage was quaint and homely but well equipped and very clean. The views are spectacular. It is a great base , from which to do day trips to Franschhoek, Greyton and Hermanus, but you will eventually just want to switch off and wander all over the farm to take in the pristine fynbos and the amazing views.
