Mudlark's has a wonderful & relaxed atmosphere with great views of the Breede River. It is situated close to the river mouth and offers plenty in the way of river and fishing activities. The owners and hosts, Hilary and Tim are just lovely. There is attention to detail, but at the same time, the lodge is laid-back, friendly and unpretentious, all of which makes Mudlark's a well loved gem. We always looks forward to dinner time and the pre-dinner drinks in the guest lounge. The delicious and generous three course country dinners, cooked by Hilary, seemed to arrive effortlessly. Dinner is served at a communal table which is social and a good way to get to know fellow guests. We enjoyed in particular watching birds from the deck, Bodger the dog, a constant companion in the guest lounge and watching the changing river scenery. After a three night stay, we were not quite ready to leave!
