About Fairview Bed and Breakfast - The Crags

In 1980, the Rattray family bought Fairview - a 68-acre headland at The Crags between Plettenberg Bay and Nature’s Valley. It was named after its extraordinary outlook over the Keurbooms Forest and into several mountain ranges. Built by David Rattray’s parents for their retirement, it was here that David’s mother, Gillian, wrote two of her books - A Cape Country Chronicle and In a Country Garden.

The property is a 10-minute drive from whale watching at Keurbooms Beach, 10 minutes from Plettenberg Bay with its gorgeous Robberg Peninsula and spectacular golf courses, and 15 minutes from Nature’s Valley with its beautiful beach and forest walks. The Kurland and Bitou Polo fields are also close by.

We offer an ideal springboard for all the attractions of this famous coastline, but far enough away from the bustle. It is spacious, beautifully furnished, affordable and it has a lovely swimming pool in the fynbos. It is possible to have exclusive use of the entire property on request.

Wedding Venues: We offer a great wedding venue for small, intimate weddings.

Family friendly: This property is perfect for families, there is a large garden and a swimming pool. Cot and high chair are available to borrow

Romantic: Fairview has beautiful views into the mountains, have a romantic drink or dinner on the veranda overlooking this great view

Magnificent accommodation with well pointed rooms in an unspoilt fynbos setting and endless mountain views. Peaceful and very quiet. Lovely  relaxing and private pool area. You get way more than you the ads present. Willemijn was attentive and very friendly. Will be back soon.
