With our impact on the planet in mind, Mount Ceder renovated three existing Sheppard’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 mountains. LED lights and a fridge/freezer are powered by solar charged 12 volt batteries. Due to the limited power available there is no microwave and there are no electrical plug points that can be used to charge electrical devices or operate hair dryers  etc. There are no air conditioners or fans in these cottages. These cottages are ideal for your winter hideaway with plenty red wine, a roaring fire and a good book. In booking our Eco Houses, guests will help to contribute towards a more sustainable future.
