Melkbos is situated on the Northern side of the river near the olive groves and within a short walking distance to the Varkkloof cliffs. The view of the olive grove and valley is spectacular from the veranda . There is an en-suite bedroom with two twin beds. A seated entertainment area outside with an outdoor fireplace to braai/barbeque can be used to relax whilst enjoying the spectacular view of the olive grove and the Varkkloof cliffs.

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.
