                          We enjoyed it very much, it's beautiful and the food was very good. I must say Dean & Belinda's hospitality is the best, felt like family. Thanx for everything.

                          Belinda and Dean are awesome hosts and made us feel so welcome from the time we arrived to our goodbyes as long lost friends.  Coming back after so many years was a delight as the whole experience was 100% improved, from the beautifully furnished rooms to the wonderful meals eaten.  Congratulations to Belinda and Dean for making my husbands birthday surprise such an awesome experience.

                          We enjoyed a wonderful break at Hawklee House recently. The facilities are good with wonderful walks along the river and the owners and staff are extremely caring and service orientated. We will definitely return. We stayed in Otter cottage which is fairly private and has a lovely Jacuzzi bath, good shower, heaters for the cold and full sports channels on DSTV - a bonus!

                          Fort Nottingham is very quiet and there’s not much to do except visit the smallest town hall in South Africa – it’s more like a medium-sized garden shed – and spend an hour or so in the museum that’s now housed in the old fort. Fort Nottingham...
