Wow, was one of the many words my sister said on our Tour for Two on Women's Day. Lumley's Place was as calming as always.

Visited Lumley's Place with my family. During the trip it was also my wife's 50th birthday and Benita and the crew really made breakfast special that morning! Great place to stay as you are in the heart of the wine route and close to excellent dinner venues. Going for a run in Pniel is a great experience for a Jo'burger.... More
