        Relaxation at it's best. A great venue for access to many attractions in the area. Many attractive wine estates as well as Franschoek are within comfortable easy reach. If you just want to put your feet up, sit by the pool and admire the view.

        Great place to stay and enjoy a typical Dutch Farm House stay..... we as guest's were entitled to enjoy "wine tasting"....which was great. The Only negative was there was no facility to eat in the evening. Although they would arrange a transfer to town.

        Loved it here. The old Cape Dutch architecture was so beautiful and the thatch felt cosy. A bit isolated if you are alone, but there is a night watchman with a big fierce dog to keep you safe! Great breakfast, served outside in the garden....More

        Hi there. Children older than 12 are welcome at Rickety Bridge, which is small and intimate. At our sister property Basse Provence, we are able to accommodate children of all ages.
