"After a long journey to Durban from Cape Town, with an overnight in Port Elizabeth also, made our arrival at Bakersfield Self-Catering cottages, Kokstad our cherry on the top of an epic journey for Mother and Daughter. Bakersfield was everything we needed. The beautiful, serene, lush and vastness of the land captured our hearts, gave us time to breath deep before heading out to the hustle and bustle of city life again. Thank you Jenny for a memorable stay over. Will highly recommend anyone looking for tranquil and serene surroundings. The cottage itself has everything one needs. The decor very tasteful lending itself to a homely environment. Thanks once again for an awesome stay.

"I highly recommend an over-night stay at Bakersfield.

My husband, our two dogs, and myself always relish the hospitality and comfort of Bakersfield when we make our bi-annual round-trip from Gauteng to rural Transkei.

A huge plus for us is that Bakersfiled is dog-friendly.

We travel with our two fur-babies each year and, it is a great relief to stay at a B&B that understands what this means. In fact .. our two pooches have grown very fond of visiting their Bakersfield friends, as have we.

The units are comfortable, clean and cosy with an attention to detail and the added bonus of a lovely view.

We look forward to our next visit.

"Arriving at 1am in the morning, after the most horrendous evening where we flipped our trailer with a boat on it around 70kms outside of Kokstad, it was amazing to view our place where we would rest our weary bodies for the night.
What a delightful cottage. Fully equipped with only the very best that anyone could ask for. A huge bed with crisp linen awaited our weary bodies. A piping hot shower.....so needed to wash off all the mud we had accumulated from our ordeal. A gas stove to make a steaming pot of fresh coffee (Yes. We brought along our own little coffee pot).
The following morning we awoke to birds singing and sheep bleating. This B and B self-catering establishment is set in a beautiful setting about 15kms outside of Kokstad on Bakkersfield Farm. Our host came to say good morning. What a lovely lady. We then had a wonderful breakfast of toast, cereal, juice, fruit, etc.
I cannot remember when R800 for two Chalets was spent and been so worthwhile. Thank you Jenny for a wonderful stay. I only wished that the circumstances had been happier for us. You come highly recommended and I wish you well with your renovations. Your place is the only place we will stay when next we travel through Kokstad.
Cheers to you!
