Weldon House is a beautiful old historical manor house offering accommodation where old world charm marries convenience and simplicity. The manor house dates back to the early 1900s, and is set on a hill with magnificent views of the ocean and the mountains.

Steeped in history, the rooms speak to old and young, as centuries of love and laughter have built walls that stand strong more than a 100 years later. Beautiful yellowwood floors and sash windows welcome visitors who soon learn that the house is for living. An old oak tree sways in the wind, creaking as it begs for company and promises shade to those who visit it. Trees provide a picnic spot whilst temporary residents overlook the bay and Robberg Nature Reserve.

The property was also home to a general dealer and then a post office. This corrugated structure with solid old wood shutters and sash windows, reminds one of the smell of Boxer tobacco, Wilson toffees and bottles of sweets on the counter, old men buying ‘moer’ coffee and telling stories, and children playing hide and seek.

The accommodation a mix of old and new- embracing the memories of family, Sunday lunches and farm breakfasts. So whether you are looking for a room with a view, or a self-catering home to accommodate a family or two, Weldon House is waiting to write a part of your story.

The Manor house consists of five large bedrooms, including two family rooms, each with its own en- suite accommodating between two and five guests. There is a breakfast area and reading nook cum sitting area for our temporary residents.

    Plettenberg Bay South Africa

    Plettenberg Bay Guest House Accommodation

    Plettenberg Bay, or Plett, as it is more familiarly known, is the most fashionable spot on the Garden Route and has been called the Riviera of Africa. It’s no exaggeration. With fabulous beaches stretching for miles, whole neighbourhoods of expensive summer homes hogging the best views, a couple of championship golf courses, and about a dozen world class polo fields, it’s definitely the playground of the rich.

    But there’s more to Plett than glitz and glamour. It’s one of the best boat based whale and dolphin watching destinations in the world, the diving is good, the surfing is great, and the fabulous Harkerville mountain biking trails are about halfway between Plett and Knysna.

    There are some awesome hikes close to the town and loads of great day walks. You can do a tandem skydive, fly in a glider or just do a scenic whale and dolphin watching flight.

    When the 15th Century Portuguese explorers first saw the place we now call Plett, they dubbed it Bahia Formosa – the beautiful bay – and it’s apt. The spectacular Robberg Peninsula, which defines the western edge of the bay, is a nature reserve where you can do walks ranging from a half hour to a day, look at seals, whales and dolphins from the cliff and visit a stone age cave with an informative site museum.

    The Keurbooms and Bitou Rivers meet up near the national road to the east of the town and join up to form the beautiful Keurbooms Lagoon. There is great paddling on both rivers, particularly the bigger Keurbooms, which has a lovely overnight hut, accessible only by canoe, about 7km upstream.

    Plett is absolutely stuffed with lovely guest houses, great restaurants, good hotels and wonderful little coffee shops. The many creative locals that have chosen to make their home in this little paradise create a constant supply of innovative crafts, foods and clothing that supply the numerous retail therapy venues.

    Every place has its down side, though, and Plett’s is its popularity with school leavers. At the end of November, or beginning of December, they descend on the town in full breeding plumage, usually in Daddy’s second or third BMW, and make their presence known. But if you steer clear of the pubs and clubs you should manage to avoid them – and they only get to the beaches in late afternoon, immediately upon waking.
