Festive Season Minimum Stay

  • There is a two-night minimum stay requirement over the Christmas and New Year period, from the 24th December to the 8th January each year.


  • We have 10 rooms:
  • 2 x Standard Rooms (they are, in essence, discounted Luxury Rooms) which are upstairs overlooking the grounds, accessible from the back of the property and have an inter-leading door through the balcony therefore making them more affordable for families or groups of friends travelling together. However, they do not need to be booked together.
  • 6 x Luxury Rooms which are identical in décor & facilities except for unique antique cupboards & dressers.
  • 1 x Honeymoon Suite which is private, larger & more romantic.
  • 1 x Family Cottage which is also more private & separate from other guests.
  • The Honeymoon Suite is at the opposite end of the property to the Family Cottage.
  • All rooms are fitted with tea/coffee stations, refrigerators, aircon, satellite TV, DVD players, electronic safes, underfloor heating & heated towel rails in the bathrooms.
  • All rooms have wood-burning fireplaces except the Family Cottage.
  • Pure goose down bedding, 100% cotton embroidered linen, embroidered gowns, slippers & pure wool carpets add to the luxury.
  • We were awarded 5-star Guesthouse by the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa in December 2008 and again in December of 2009. We were awarded 5-star Country House in February of 2011, January of 2012, January 2013, February 2014 & now March 2015 by the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa.
