Wonderful in all ways.

Calgary, Canada

We brought my in-laws down from Gauteng for a few days here, and absolutely loved our stay. The cottages were very comfortable, well-equipped and clean and the grounds were stunning. We ate twice at the Bell Tavern and once at Carolines seafood bistro and the food and drink was excellent. Of course Jeffrey was the high point of the staff experience but absolutely everyone was helpful, friendly and willing. It was a little piece of paradise.

Fabulous Saturday Morning Breakfast Special

Sedgefield, Western Cape, South Africa

R45 for a full breakfast with Bottomless coffee and juice and toast is a fabulous start to a Saturday. Great service from Jeffrey and Co. Usually served at the Bell Tavern but we were lucky that on the day we visited, breakfast was being served on the terrace of the Manor with stunning views.
