Zia Cottage is a family-owned business established in 2023.  Our goal is to provide a calm and serene atmosphere through which daily challenges can be tempered with peace and tranquility, allowing one to live in harmony.
The cottage is uniquely nestled at the base of the beautiful Witzenberg Mountains with two streams running through the property, a rustic fire pit nestled in the forest just meters from the cottage, and is protected from winds no matter their direction.
With spectacular views, the cottage is in an area where guests can engage in activities such as hiking, cycling/mountain biking, and fishing.  For those not as adventurous, a smart flat screen television is available (containing DSTV, Netflix, Prime Video, Spotify, and You Tube) with free wi-fi.
Each season brings about a different picturesque beauty, especially in winter where one might see snow on the Witzenberg and Ceres mountains.
We hope that by relaxing in our mountainside setting you can renew your value of living life in balance and with respect to the
four Zia virtues: a strong body, a clear mind, a pure spirit, and a devotion to the respect of others.
We hope you enjoy our haven of tranquility and find it as restful as we do.

The secluded Tulbagh Valley, being surrounded on three sides by the Groot Winterhoek, Witzenberg and Obiqua mountains, provides the perfect backdrop for hiking or mountain biking.   There are over sixteen kilometres of trails accessible directly from Zia cottage that wind throughout the fynbos and pine forests at the base of the beautiful Witzenberg Mountains.  These are private and infrequently used so be sure to bring your cell phone for emergencies, and of course a camera for all the great photo ops along the way!


Are you travelling without your bikes, new to mountain biking or just want to try something different?  At Zia Cottage you will be able to rent one of our four MTBs to discover the area on two wheels.  Whether a placid trek on the farm roads, a small challenge on hilly terrain, or a more demanding cross-hill tour, our fleet of great rental bikes will help you get out on the trails.  In addition to our bikes, helmets are included to keep you safe on your ride.
Book in advance to make sure the bikes are prepared and ready upon your arrival.  Our current routes include sixteen kilometres of trails with a variety of difficulty levels and are available on our website.  All start directly from Zia Cottage to allow easy access on and off the trail network.
