About
Description
Distinctly different! Lovely characterful, self-catering cottages, all with log fire-places, those on the edge of the cliff have some of the most spectacular views in SA. We also have B&B en-suite More garden rooms. Cosy restaurant and bar with fire-places, serving delicious, mostly organic, locally grown fare. Great food and superb wines at excellent prices. 15 acres of beautiful gardens. Experience walking our acclaimed 'Labyrinth on the Edge'. Less
