Instead of the hustle and bustle of Plettenberg Bay my wife and I really enjoyed staying at this tranquil, beautiful country house set just far away from the highway. There are also cottages you can rent as a family. Our room in the main house is beautifully furnished, and has spectacular views of the mountains, and the family that runs...

This accommodation was a great place to stay. The cottages are very large and had every possible amenity. The host was helpful and friendly. The power cut was dealt with without any stress and her advice on local places was very helpful. We had a great animal based day with all of the local sanctuaries so it would be an...

Thank you so much for your review. We do appreciate it. Plettenberg Bay has lots of animal adventures to experience, so we are not just pretty beaches :-)

We had a lovely couple of days in a Fynbos Ridge cottage. We loved the patio/BBQ area and the views beyond. The cottage was beautifully decorated with plenty of amenities available - two bedrooms, two bathrooms - one with tub, the other with shower, a vast living and dining area and a fully functional kitchen. Highly recommended.

A beautiful spot nested in a bush and birds with a spectacular view. Liz and Brian look after you extremely well and attend to your every need. We'd be back there in a flash- if we didn't live 8000 miles away. Kit

We have enjoyed a number of visits at this great place. Although situated a few kilometers outside of Plettenberg Bay in a very quiet area with beautiful mountain views, a lot of bird life and natural fynbos, it is also conveniently situated close to all the great attractions of this area. We have stayed in the self catering cottages and...

I stayed in the cottage on the estate overlooking the valley. It is totally quiet and peaceful the only noise you hear is nature. I woke up in the mornings with birds chirping away. Lovely place for couples and family retreat.

We stayed for one night on our way to Cape Town. Nature at its best with accommodation to compliment the surroundings. Thank you Brian for the mouth watering breakfast, nice chat to Liz and Mel that did the booking. The three of you are doing an excellent job! Hennie & Marleen Lombard

Cannot recommend this enough. Wonderful setting, accommodation superb and food excellent. Resident pet pigs enlightened our stay with owners Brian and co very welcoming. Had a lovely home cooked lasagne with sticky toffee pudding delivered to our cottage by Brian which was perfect. Colourful SA birds in abundance. The pool was in a very pretty and quiet location.

Fynbos ridge is a true 5 star accommodation. The garden is wonderful and the downstairs room with a walk-in closet and its own spacious verandah is very comfortable and very tastefully furnished. The lounge with honesty bar is very comfortable and again really tastefully furnished. The very friendly staff take care of all of your needs without you having to...
