Everything was perfect from breakfast to bed time
Beautiful, peaceful and totally fascinating stay!! Wonderful hosts and grounds, we will be back??
This was a truly wonderful place to stay. The homestead was steeped in history containing so much beautiful antique furniture. The surrounding gardens were stunning beautiful and we liked feeding the toast to the friendly pig. The trip afterwards to Cape Paliiser was well worth doing - we saw all the seals swimming in the ocean including a massive elephant sea that swam in right up to the shore.
What a great place for a relaxing weekend get away. From the open fire pre lit for our arrival to the home baking to the stroll round the garden to the cooked breakfast. We will definitely look at doing this more often.
The manor is brimming with history, charm, and hospitality. Our room was very warm and there was always a roaring fire going in our dining/sitting room when we arrived back from hiking the Pinnacles or enjoying the vineyards of near-by Martinborough. Breakfast was delicious and we woke-up every morning looking forward to it. The surrounding farm and gardens is incredibly scenic and well worth a long morning/afternoon stroll to take it all in.
