The beds were made up with lovely crisp linen and there were two towels and a facecloth per person.

We stayed at Appelsbosch Guest House for 2 nights, I wish I had booked for longer. It's the ideal place if you want to get away from the fast pace of everyday life and just enjoy the view and the nature around you. I will definitely be going back some time for another visit.
