Nellie van der Merwe of Wellington was the second youngest daughter from a family of 13 children. Oupa Carel used to tell how he crossed the Slanghoek Mountains on foot to visit his sweetheart Nellie on weekends. Cottage 4 is the only one with a view on the hole in the Slanghoek Mountains. It reminds us of the eye of a needle and of Ouma Nellie’s love for needlework, knitting and especially the finest crochet work.
