We had a lovely evening in the coach house. It was well appointed clean and comfortable. The free wifi doesn't work in this room but that just meant no distractions and a real retreat! It worked elsewhere. I indulged in a relaxation package where I was pampered by the wonderful Karen. Dinner was huge, delightfully delicious, prepared by the lovely...

This is a very quiet and relaxing place to stay. The hosts are great, the perfect combination of attentiveness when needed while leaving us to enjoy our stay with upmost privacy. We had a private cottage with a hammock to relax in during the sunny afternoons and in room spa to relax in during the evenings. The bed was comfortable...

Richard and Carolyn made sure we had the best experience possible, we were very well looked after:) The place was lovely, clean and the SPA treatments were really good and the meals were the cherry on top, authentic home cooking. Highly recommended for a couples weekend getaway

The place is in the middle of the nature with fruit trees, chickens and a friendly cat around. We were given a private cottage with a car port. It had air-con, bathroom with jacuzzi, and bedroom. Bed was slightly squeaky at night, but for the rest I cannot complain, as the atmosphere is really relaxing. We had a fantastic 5-star...

Shared a relaxing two days in the Coach house with my dear friend Sara (and the delightful kitties Lucy and Lily when they graced us with their presence!). Our hosts, Caroline and Richard were warm and friendly and the breakfasts and dinner they prepared were excellent; fresh, local produce, beautifully cooked/prepared and served in the dining room of our choice...

We loved staying at the Fawkes House in the little cottages. Richard and Caroline were perfect hosts, the rooms were nice, super clean, and quiet. We loved the welcome platter and breakfast was wonderful on the veranda overlooking the beautiful garden. We loved that it was in the country, yet close to the city for easy access.

We just spent the most fabulous night at Fawkes House. The cottage was lovely - very comfortable, private and quiet. We were made to feel very welcome by Caroline and Richard, nothing was too much trouble for them. The welcome platter was a nice touch and the breakfast was divine. It was lovely to sit under the verandah listening to...

Lovely peaceful location, good hosts. Food was plentiful, spa treatments delightful. Cottage separate from the main house with a kettle, fridge and bathroom with a tub. The only real issue was the bugs, but who can argue with nature! Great to get away from the city, free parking, plenty of inclusions, across the road from a winery. Comfy bed, robes,...

Thank you for a wonderful stay. The Coach House was a visit into the history of the house and it's original owners. The dinner taken in the dining room with an open fire was delicious. Recommend everything on the menu. Breakfast was very substantial and like dinner delicious. The gardens are beautiful and the location is perfect. Can definitely recommend...

I took my husband for his birthday to Fawkes House. Everything about Fawkes House was excellent. The hospitality, the cottage, the food, the location. Had an absolutely fantastic time. The welcoming platter was so refreshing, the dinner at the fireplace was so romantic and the breakfasts delicious! Next time I will book in for a massage:)
