Having driven along the N2 from Cape Town we arrived at Packwood to be met by Vicky and Peter Gent whilst looking out at the most amazings views across the farm. Breakfast was a delight sitting outside looking at the view and after a dip in the pool sitting in peace and quiet on the decking again looking out as far as the eye can see. Not only lovely fresh milk from the jersey cows, mature cheddar made from their own milk but delicous sauvignon blanc from the Packwood vines. wish we could have brought more of that home!!
Great place to be as both Knysna and Plett are less than 30 mins away and Vicky will happily recommend things to do and places to eat. We spent 5 days( having booked 4) here and really did not want to leave but we were truly relaxed and will return.
