Woodcutters Haven Homestay

Lettie believes that her homestay gives visitors a broader view about the way of life, culture, history and the feel of this forestry community as well as an opportunity to taste the local food. Four people can be accommodated. There is electricity, but no running water, so Lettie provides warm water to wash in. There is an outside toilet, with a seat and is kept very clean. The house is close to a lovely walk along the river, and there are plenty of walking trails in the mountains nearby.

Lettie serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Her speciality is her famous organic spinach pie.

An example of the food that Lettie will prepare for guests:

  • Breakfast:  Mealie meal pap, eggs (from Lettie’s chickens), roosterkoek, coffee and milk from Lettie’s cows;
  • Lunch: Lettie’s famous spinach tart and salad;
  • Dinner: Curry or stew with samp or rice. Traditional pudding – ‘brown pudding’ with custard.


  • Enjoy walks in the forest where you can see birds, monkeys and baboons;
  • In the evening the family play card games and share a bottle of wine; and
  • They also share their restitution claim stories and tales of the old Woodcutters.
