Any advice on how long to stay ? We are stuck between one or two nights?
HI Kelly, I will suggest if you have time stay 2 nights. Then you have time to experience Botlierskop and time to relax. Don't hesitate to contact us for more information. Hope to see you soon! Alison

Please could you tell me what the dress code is for dinner in the evenings - do people dress up? Thank you
Smart casual is completely fine. You’re quite secluded from city life and everyone is aware of that, so it’s relaxed but smart enough to ensure you know you’re out!
