Balloch Cottages, Camping Site near Rhodes

Balloch Cottages

Come and enjoy our camping areas or our cottage and experience our spectacular and magical mountain scenery.

Balloch Cottages offer RUSTIC camp sites - there are power points but these only work when we have power available due to our use of a hydro electric system. So please enquire before you come as to whether there will be power or not, and be prepared to bring your own lighting system and fridges that run on vehicle batteries or solar panels. I am very happy to keep frozen foods in my deep freeze.

Balloch Cottages have 2 exclusive camp sites. One is in a huge overhang with a large lawn area to enjoy - a very, very special spot.

The other is at the river alongside a beautiful river swimming pool with large shade trees and a very spacious lawn area for your tents or campers.

Balloch Cottages provide 2 shower rooms (4 toilets) and a washing up facility - hot water runs on gas geysers, and braai facilities.There is a fresh water tap at each camp area.

Each site is booked for one group only at a time.

Due to the long stretch of gravel road to get to the farm it is not suitable to bring caravans. Only tents and roof top tents or off road campers/caravans.

NO PETS we are a sheep farm and cannot have strange dogs on the farm.
