Silver Linings Guesthouse

A cosy cottage in the heart of Parys.


Silver Linings Guest Cottage is the ideal place to unwind in picturesque Parys. Set in a beautiful garden and walking distance from the river, this little cottage offers a private entrance, lounge, kitchenette, double bedroom clothed in Egyptian cotton and en suite bathroom boasting a shower and bath.


The Cottage

The cottage has a lounge area with comfortable seating and a mini library.  The modern kitchen which forms part of the open plan area of the lounge is fully equipped for self-catering with a glass top stove /oven, fridge, microwave, toaster, kettle and coffee percolator. On arrival, you will receive some milk and cookies/rusks to get you started. There is a selection of teas, ground and Instant coffees available. The crockery and utensils are of top quality and the wine and drinking glasses are all crystal. You even have your own private little wine cellar where the “Honesty Bar” rules apply. Please note that you cannot drink the water from the Parys area, so we supply a 5-litre bottle of water each day.

The carpeted bedroom is equipped with a Queen size bed with goose down duvet and pillows, Egyptian cotton sheets and electric under blankets (for Winter). Extra mohair blankets and throws are available for very cold days. Excellent lighting next  to the beds makes for good reading. There is also plenty of cupboard and drawer space for that adventurous packer!

The bathroom has a full large glass shower and a long rectangular bath, hand basin and toilet. There is a double bar heater in the bathroom to warm up those chilly mornings and nights. The bathroom comes fully equipped with luxury amenities for guests to use freely and top quality towels are supplied.

The outside area is available for guests to use freely. You can either use the gas braai outside the cottage or you can use the main braai in the gazebo area if you want to braai. There are comfortable couches to lounge around on and a dining room table with 8 chairs, if you want to host a special dinner. There is also a well-stocked fridge with cool drinks, beers, wine and champagne. The “Honesty Bar” Rules also apply here.

We can have the cottage serviced and laundry done at a nominal fee.

If you are feeling stuck for ideas of what to do in Parys, I can assist with making all your bookings such as dinner or lunch reservations, book a round of golf or white river rafting etc.

Guests have access to the braai area, outdoor lounge area and garden.
