Good Morning Johnathon Thank you for the review. I will definitely take your comments to heart and look at the comments and suggestions here. I hope you enjoy the rest of your trip. Kind regards Cassie

Relaxation at it's best. A great venue for access to many attractions in the area. Many attractive wine estates as well as Franschoek are within comfortable easy reach. If you just want to put your feet up, sit by the pool and admire the view.

Good Morning Thank you for taking the time to review the Manor house at Rickety Bridge . I am delighted you relaxed and enjoyed your stay with us. Regards Cassie

Reviewed 1 March 2017

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.

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.
