We only stayed here one night unfortunately but it was a real pleasure.
The cottages are large + comfortable with the furniture in keeping with it's style. There was a swimming pool, hammocks, a braai for each cottage, sunbeds + chairs around the pool + outside the cottages. There was a fully equipped kitchen, which unfortunately we only used for making hot drinks.
Rita + wim were very attentive + Wim very kindly booked us into an excellent local restaurant that evening+ even drove us there + picked us up later. They really put us at ease + made for a very sress free stay.
The gardens are being extended, incorporating a Japanese themed garden + will really compliment the rest of the beautiful gardens.
Breakfast was served outside by the pool + there was good choice with a healthy content.
Thanks Rita + Wim for a lovely stay + when we come back to CT we will definitely come + stay again.
