We had both been to Houw Hoek as children for afternoon visits, but this was the first time either of us had stayed over. What an amazing experience. The weather was terrible when we got there which meant that it was perfect Houw Hoek Inn weather. We spent the evening (the last night of our two week holiday) in the pub playing UNO and chatting to the lovely gentleman behind the bar while listening to the bucketing rain. The roaring fires that were burning in fireplaces throughout the Inn made it just that much more special.
Dinner was amazing - we still often speak about the delicious chicken cordon blue and pepper steak that we had. The lemon meringue was divine! Probably the best meal we can remember having!
The next day the rain had cleared and we enjoyed a game of putt putt before heading home.
The perfect spot to end a perfect holiday!
