 We had a lovely stay at De Wagenhuis Guest House.  The property was beautiful, set in the fields with the mountains in the background. There is an old fashioned trophy room with a collection of South African animal and race car trophies.  There is also a quaint, hand built chapel on the property.  Our room was amazing, huge with a spacious sitting area.  Lots of light and African treasures on display.  The bathroom was incredible.  One room with two sinks, another room with a bathtub and two showers and a glass doors for wonderful Light.  Both dinner and breakfast were delicious.
