What a wonderful 4 nights stay we had at TheGarden House. Annette originally comes from Manchester as do I and so immediately we had a connection. Also our love of animals. The Garden house is absolutely delightful with a fridge full of drinks, tea and coffee with fresh biscuits each day and drinks with Annette and Barry before going out... More

The Garden House is owned by Annette and Barry and we fell under their charm right from the beginning ! They made us feel right at home and provided us with good tips around where to eat and which wineries to visit, as the number to choose from can get overwhelming. We were staying in the cottage, which was absolutely... More

It would be worth staying here just to be entertained by the owners who could not be more welcoming. The garden cottage was snug and the surroundings are amazing - looking at the photos of the view from the house now its hard to believe it was real. The garden is lovely and there is a decent sized pool with... More

Annette and Barry have worked out - well it also comes naturally - is that the way to make people feel at home is to treat them as friends. It's a beautiful house and wonderful garden - nothing is too much trouble - and they offer so much more than you would expect. We lazed by the pool, did a... More

Staying at the Garden House again was every bit as good as we remembered - Barry and Annette welcomed us like old friends and were really helpful when it came to suggesting new restaurants and vineyards to visit - even helping us secure reservations. The house is perfectly situated for exploring Franschhoek and the surrounding area - and a lovely... More

Annette and Barrys Home is like pardise - beautiful garden, nice pool and a really large house. We spent 2 nights at the room in the main house and from beginning Annette and Barry made us feel like visiting family. They really take care of the guests, offering a large and super delicious breakfast and also do reservations and make... More

Staying at the Garden House is like visiting a friend - one you didn't know you had! from the moment of arriving Annette and Barry are making you feel right at home. I had a glass of chilled wine in my hand within 10 mins and an invitation to join them on their stoop as soon as we were settled... More
