We had a lovely overnight stay at Stony Brook cottages while in Franschhoek for the "Walk This Earth Alone" art exhibition. We enjoyed a wine tasting at our arrival at Stony Brook, and retreated with a bottle of The "J" - a wonderful, tasty and versatile wine, which we enjoyed before and together with our dinner in the cottage. The cottage is well-equipped and spacious, and we slept warm and cozy. Plenty of candles and a fireplace gives warmth and a romantic atmosphere. The setting of the cottages is beautiful, with the small stream running past and mountains overlooking orchards. We will definitely return for another stay! Especially since we came during a very rainy weekend, and the mountains were hiding behind the clouds. Because of the wet weather we also forgot to go and look at their Ghost Gum!
