    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

    Overpriced , room very small . no bath soap. breakfast very basic. I was very very disappointed in just about everything and would recommend that you find alternative accommodation. It was a rip off and even the parking and help with the luggage was poor.More

    Good Afternoon. You will be checked in to your room before 5pm and if you go out for supper, you will have all access to the property with keys. There should be no problem at all. Kind regards Cassie

    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.
