We stayed for 2 nights in one of the Self catering cottages, and I have a massive regret - it was only for 2 nights - oh how I wish it had been for a week! The cottage Aristea was fantastic - a lovely well appointed cottage. The beds were extremely comfortable and the lounge too was comfy. The shower was wonderful, the best shower in our 24 day holiday! The location was fantastic. As a bird watcher it was great for me to wander down to the pool early morning and see the great variety of birds buzzing around all the fynbos as well as at the bird feeders. Great view of the mountains and was really peaceful here. There is also so much to do at Plett - and we were only a short drive from the town and seafront, with the lovely beaches and great restaurants as well as activities.
We had a great welcome from Mel and Brian and ordered breakfast too, which was really fresh, wholesome and beautifully cooked. We also enjoyed meeting the pigs - what a great friendly place this is! We also ordered a dinner for the second night, asking for Ostrich. The dinner was fantastic and what a great cook Brian is - we absolutely loved the food - great dessert too that we didn't expect but of course ate up!
We spent 22 days in SA (2 days flying) on this holiday and this was my favourite and most comfortable place we stayed at. Shame it was winter but never mind as we did get to sit outside of an evening, but I would love to go back in summer and stay there as the view was fantastic, the scenery awe inspiring and the cottage so comfortable - it was a true home from home - I just wished we had missed out Oudtshoorn and stayed at Fynbos ridge a lot longer. I would thoroughly recommend Fynbos ridge and i do look forward to a return visit in a couple of years time.
