The standalone, self contained cottages were very nicely presented and well equipped. The cottage had airconditioning and several heaters to cope with the cooler evenings. The bed was not as comfortable as I had expected for the presentation of the property which resulted in frequently disturbed sleep.

Owners were very welcoming and gave us extra attention. The spotlighting experience with the grandchildren was wonderful - thanks Errrol!

Very nice surrounds and property. Staff were great. Made sure we were offered opportunity to join other guests for twilight wine and cheese on adjacent property even though we arrived late. Whilst we didn't go, it was really nice to be asked. We'll be back.

The room was lovely, a bit stuffy as there was no flow of natural air. Restaurant was not open, but there were plenty of places to eat

I liked everything, but especially the privacy. The cottage was clean and very comfortable. The restaurant was great.

We really enjoyed our stay at the vineyard cottages. The owners and staff are so friendly and go out of their way to make sure you have a pleasant stay. Simon took us on a unique wine tour which was excellent. The restaurant is absolutely beautiful I can’t recommend the food enough. I cant wait to go back again !
