The guesthouse is beautiful and very peaceful. The main house and reception's decor is stunning. We received a friendly welcome from the hostess. We loved our room. It was cosy and warm on a very cold weekend. The room was clean in all respects. We enjoyed all the thoughtful touches. Breakfast was delicious. We can confidently recommend the guesthouse.

I had a fantastic stay at Gerald's Gift House, the name says it all. Electric blanket, tea and coffee making facilities, very roomy bathroom, bedroom and sitting room, and wow, my car cleaned daily. Thanks to the hostess, Sue, I was very looked after. I will definitely go back when I return to South Africa.

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend break at Gerald's Gift. Our room was gorgeous and very comfortable. Relaxing in the beautiful and extensive garden with a cup of coffee watching the sunset was a total treat. The hosts are warm, friendly and very helpful and the breakfasts were top notch. No complaints whatsoever and highly recommended.

The rooms are very spacious, the garden beautiful and Yvonne was very helpful; mothering even, some who are not used to being mothered may find her a bit pushy, but she really is nice. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay
