The Garden House is special - set in a beautiful garden with views over the Valley and a pool that’s big enough to swim in. On the edge of the village, it is just a safe and easy walk to its shops and many of its best restaurants. It is one of the very few genuine B&Bs left in Franschhoek where your hosts live and welcome you.

The space

Most of our guests stay in The Cottage. The rate is R2300 per night from mid October 2017 to end April 2018. It is separated from the main house by a shaded courtyard so we all have our privacy. It has a spacious bedroom with warm and cool air conditioning, a ceiling fan, fridge with complimentary soft drinks and beers, radio, TV and DVD player with a selection of interesting films, tea and coffee making facilities, hair dryer and safe. In the large en suite bathroom there is a bath, separate shower, dressing gowns and under floor heating.

From October to mid-April guests enjoy the lovely valley views from the veranda of the main house with a breakfast of home-made muesli, yogurt and berries in season and seasonal fresh fruit, orange juice, delicious smoked Franschhoek salmon trout, Franschhoek cheeses, toast, warm croissants and lashings of tea and strong, fresh coffee.

From mid-April to October, we provide a light breakfast in The Cottage of home-made muesli, yogurt, orange juice, fruit and hot croissants when you wake up.

Pet friendly guests are specially welcome We have four character cats and two very friendly dogs - Benjie and Lizzie – who are usually there to welcome you. They are all "rescues" and an important part of our life.

Guest access

Guests have unrestricted use of our garden, swimming pool and free use of our bicycles.

Interaction with guests

Guests are welcome to join us for complimentary sundowners on the veranda. With locals and past guests we couldn't accommodate dropping in it sometimes becomes quite a party!

Annette is involved in animal welfare in the local township and is happy to take guests with her. Barry has a chess group in a township primary school where you can pit your wits against an aspiring young Kasparov!

In summer, if you're feeling energetic you can go with Barry on a pre-breakfast mountain bike ride on old forestry tracks in the mountains
