Leeustert is a converted Sheppard’s house and sits modestly at the foot of the brooding Blinkberg mountain. There is a bedroom with two three quarter beds, a full bathroom with a small adjoining open plan dining room and kitchen area. There is an indoor fireplace that can be used for warmth in winter or as in indoor braai/barbeque. There is also an entertainment area outside with an outdoor fireplace for a braai/barbeque and seating area to relax whilst enjoying the relaxing view of the olive grove.
With tomorrow in mind, Mount Ceder renovated three existing Shepard’s cottages that were built in the late 1800’s, into charming Eco-Friendly houses. All three houses are run on energy generated from solar panels powered by the abundant sunshine naturally found in the Cederberg environment. LED lights and a fridge/freezer are powered by 12 volts. Due to our focus on being environmentally friendly, unfortunately there is no microwave and there are no electrical plug points that can be used to charge electrical devices or operate hairdryers etc. There is also no air conditioners or fans in these houses. We understand the importance of reducing our carbon footprint and leaving this untouched wilderness intact for future generations. In booking an Eco House, our guests will have the opportunity to contribute towards a more sustainable future.
