very nice place to stay, a main house and some cottages all in the midst of a beautiful garden and a big fruit farm! The owner is very friendly and offered a perfect service.

From the outside the accommodation looks rustic, but once through the doors, clean and everything you could want. Staff are very friendly and delicious dinner and breakfast. Grounds are beautiful and we enjoyed our walk through the orchards

One of the biggest units I have ever stayed in on a holiday. Magnificent garden. Great service from superb hosts. Very peaceful and completely safe. Just needs to be slightly modernised and TV repaired.

Really beautiful gardens - stunning surroundings. Bookings totally misunderstood despite clear email instructions. 4 single adults (3 in their 60's and one in her 40's) given a room with a double bed and a kids' bunk bed. Horrible dark stains on one of the pillows (like dried blood), which we could see through the thin pillow slip. That left us...

The rondavel in which we stayed was a bit rustic and indeed dark. We needed the bathroom door with the light on to see properly. However the hospitality was excellent and both meals dinner and breakfast were superb. WE have to say that the visit of the horse for his breakfast was novel.
