We booked in for Valentines Day and wow! The manor house is sublime, the breakfast to die for, and the people could not have been friendlier or more helpful. Make sure to take a dip in the pool and enjoy the wine tasting. We will be back!

We loved our stay at the Rickety Bridge Manor House and it felt like we had the place to ourselves. The room was clean. The breakfast was brilliant. We enjoyed a swim in the pool and watched a movie on the flat screen.

We didn’t stay at the Rickety Bridge Country House but enjoyed lunch on their veranda. We had West Coast mussels and it was very delicious, especially with their local wine. A recommended lunch stopover.

Are children allowed to stay at your establishment?
Hi there. Children older than 12 are welcome at Rickety Bridge, which is small and intimate. At our sister property Basse Provence, we are able to accommodate children of all ages.

Hi there, Rickety Bridge is 3km from the centre of Franschhoek. It is on the R45, on the right. look out for the large white sign board immediately after Basse Provence. Turn right and follow the road over the bridge, across the river, to this hidden gem.
