A truly stunning place to stay, absolutely everything has been thought of and everything is perfect, including (but I’m sure I’ll miss things):
– all of the staff were amazing and welcoming, including chatting to the owners, hearing about the history of the place and the area etc.
– the food was OUT OF THIS WORLD. Eat it. Eat all of it.
– the views are exceptional. We were in cottage 8 and I don’t think I’ve ever woken up to a more breathtaking view in my entire life
– the swimming pool is incredible (you’ll see what I mean if, I mean when, you go)
– great little hikes straight out of the gate
– perfect location for exploring the drakensberg (we did the Tugela Gorge Hike and the Cascades)
– great horse riding experience
– sold great coffee for our cafetière
– great recommendation of a nearby restaurant
– oh, and the actual cottage that we stayed in was just perfect. They are beautifully built, thoughtfully and tastefully designed, have everything you need and to be honest I wish that could be my actual home.

As someone who is lucky enough to have travelled to a fairly large number of countries over the years, I can genuinely say that this is comfortably in the top three best places I’ve ever stayed anywhere in the world (it might be number 1, I just need to let the dust settle a bit first…). Despite living in the UK, we will be back!
