If you are planning to do the R62, you MUST go to the Tradouw Guesthouse in Barrydale. The rooms are all nicely decorated, with a personal touch. In the beautiful garden you can relax and read in the sun, or you can also sit in the courtyard, under the vines, enjoying a drink in the shade. They have their own bar (again unique, hand picked decoration), where we chatted until late with Leon and some other guests. What makes this place really unique, are the nice hosts, Leon and Denis. They were so welcoming, made us feel at ease and gave us a lot of information about Barrydale and the region.
