Fynbos Ridge Country House & Cottages

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 12, 2013

I thought your property to be one of the best I have stayed in for a long time. The accommodation in the Manor House and the cottages has everything your heart desires even down to a built in braai area (cottages) outside for our SA clients. The beds were super comfortable with lovely linen and everything was beautifully clean and fresh. We loved the fynbos flower arrangements in each room and the very concise book of
things to do in the area. But the cherry on the top was the lovely way Liz and her family treated us in an unfussy, friendly way and nothing was too much trouble. I will personally be back and will without a doubt send my clients to Fynbos whenever I get the change. Thanks for a lovely stay.

We had a wonderfull stay at Fynbos Ridge, The cottages are beautifully decorated and spotless!!
We really appreciated the fact that everything was so neat. The view from the cottage is amazing.
The food is a real treat and so much attention given to detail.
The staff is so friendly and made us feel welcome right from the start, but also respects ones privacy.

It was a pleasure to stay at this mountain jewel. Located away from the bustle of the main route yet within close proximity to many of the areas attractions. The Self-catering cottages are beautifully appointed with everything you need!

Our family spent 4 nights at Fynbos Ridge, and we enjoyed it greatly. The property is stunningly beautiful; you are surrounded by birdsong and lush gardens that the owners have cultivated over many years (Brian told me they had planted 20,000 plants, and I believe it!). The cottages are charming and comfortable, and they have lovely views across the fynbos (meadowlands) to the distant hills. Liz and Brian are kind and gracious hosts. Their pets (3 dogs and the delightful Truffles the pig) entertained all of us, and my sons enjoyed wandering through the gardens. The setting is remote (about 5 mi outside Plettenberg Bay); go there if you are looking for a peaceful and charming retreat, but don't expect to be near the beach.

Room Tip: We loved staying in one of the cottages.

What happens when location, location, location meets comfort, comfort, comfort?...Fynbos Ridge is the answer. Situated a few kilometers from Plettenberg Bay on the road to Knysna, Fynbos Ridge is not surrounded by crowds, other houses or accommodation establishments, it is where it should be - in peaceful, magnificent surroundings. The accommodation itself consists of several individually 'amenitised' rooms with en-suite bathrooms, big screen TV's and extremely comfortable beds. The lounge area is stocked with a wide selection of DVD's and the rest of the house has a bar, kitchen and dining room. Next we have breakfast - an assortment of fresh fruits, pancakes and cooked breakfasts will set you up for the day. All in all - excellent service, standard of facilities and quality of location and surroundings.
