We were made to feel very welcome and given loads of local advice.
The room was lovely and we were provided with freshly baked muffins each morning, to complement the already well-stocked kitchenette (breads, yoghurt, milk, juice, fruit, tea, coffee).
The website isn't clear on which rooms have spa bath so we were a little disappointed that ours didn't have one (only a shower).
There are a couple of wineries in walking distance. Mistletoe Winery over the road does a delicious dessert wine (Mistela) and offer twilight tastinsg (they're open until 6pm when most other wineries close at 5pm).
We hired bicycles and visited 5 different wineries. But we clocked up around 30km of cycling so it's not for the unfit!
A lovely stay. Can't wait to re-visit with friends and rent one of the cottages (they have fireplace and spa bath).
