A very quiet and picturesque place.Definitely the place to go to if you need to escape the city and hustle and bustle!We had a disappointing Sunday breakfast experience though! Wanted to spoil dad on Fathers Day with what we expected would be a typical farm breakfast!Only to be told: No omelettes, no cheese, no baked beans, no scones and no toast was offered to our table! So NOT worth the R85 per person we paid!This put a little damper on the weekend, but was still a pretty place!

The staff and owners are very welcoming, they made my stay with the family very homely. The food was good and the scenery was a breath taker.
