‘A Hospitable Haven Under Glorious African Skies’
Overlooking the Matjies River Gorge, this congenial hub is where it all happens.; you are invited to kick off your shoes, grab a icy drink from the bar and relax . There are three lounge areas to escape to for reading or watching through binoculars; they enjoy an outlook onto of the indigenous forest valley and Tsitsikama Mountains or for bird lovers the Ficus lounge where an ancient fruit-laden tree is a favourite with Plett's prolific bird community. At the centre of the Main House is their famously large dining room table where guests can plan their daily activities over breakfast and unwind in the evening around a candle-lit table laden with gourmet delights.
