Lovely breakfasts and comfortable rooms in a quiet place in Greyton which is a beautiful village to visit

The location of this accommodation is absolutely perfect. The property, gardens and other hidden corners translate into a stay of peacefulness & restorative calm. The incredible breakfast & total service cannot be praised enough. A must stay for either local or overseas travellers.

Stayed at High Hopes for a mid week retreat. Excellent relaxed atmosphere with all the home from home facilities. Close to the shops and restaurants in town. Hearty breakfast each morning to set us up for the day. Highly recommended.

We had a restful break at this little oasis village. High Hopes was a great place to stay- had everything we needed and our host was so helpful and welcoming. I would have loved a treatment which unfortunately wasn't available the weekend we were there.
