We offer 8 stylishly decorated ensuite double/twin rooms. Each unit has its own private entrance, making sure that you receive your well-deserved privacy.
The manor house has four double room with en-suite bathrooms.
Next to the deli, is an enchanting little apricot orchard, with tables where guests could wander to…should the weather permit. There is something magical about an orchard. In summer the abundance and smell of the fruit inspires great dishes. During autumn, the lush green leaves are transformed into a canvas of rich auburns and red flames, and in winter, the bare trees take time to rest.
The orchard can be booked for evening functions as well. Fairy lights, lanterns, big fires and live music (if you wish) set the background for a truly festive evening for the whole family. The soft light of the lanterns and fairy lights and the smell of wood burning, mingling with different spices of a South African braai, never ceases to impress. The orchard, with the majestic Swartberg Mountains as a backdrop, is the perfect venue for small, intimate weddings.
