Stayed here for three nights between Christmas and new year. Had a double and a twin room as we were a family of four. Fynbos Ridge was a lovely secluded country house. There was a real family feel. Lovely lounges and terraces. We ate fish and chips on the veranda one night. You can make hot drinks in the kitchen...

Fynbos Ridge is a wonderful place to stay if it is your first trip to the area. The location was great, surrounded by nature and also a short drive to Plettenburg Bay. Our hosts were absolutely amazing, truly going above and beyond to make our stay as comfortable as possible. I will most certainly be returning!!
