We stayed 6 nights at Doornbosch and we came mainly for riding. We stayed in the Guesthouse and we liked everything. Got up early in the morning before sunrise every day and went out riding with Heidi and also with Jane and Mike, from the neighbor farm. The farm provides sufficient area even for the long time we stayed.
Heidi is a great horse woman and her horses are very well kept. They go in front or behind, they don't stick to each other and are soft in the hand. The tack is very well maintained (better than our own at home). The hills, the flowers and the other scenery of the farm give a very nice picture and makes riding very pleasant. After riding we had a great breakfast, prepared by Heidi, with homemade honey, tropical fruits, eggs from their own hens and lecker Muesli.
Then we took our rest, reading books or made a short trip to Hermanus or Cape Agulhas. In the afternoon we took another ride and later also had a Braai or a Potjie, prepared by Bertie.
The Guesthouse and the cottages are all new, spacious and in very good condition. We liked Doornbosch in every aspect and hope to come back sometimes. Thanks for a great holiday experience. Would have given more than 5 points if possible.
