I stayed in Anna's cottage for a week. There was plenty of room and a nice covered porch. The hosts brought fresh eggs from their chickens each day--available only when they are laying! A highlight was the availability of mountain bikes for riding to the nearby wineries or just for exercise. They are in good shape and helmets/vests are also... More

We really enjoyed our three nights in the Stables having the privacy of being surrounded by neighbouring vineyards, the entertainment of watching the free range chickens, the small flock of sheep, the three deer and admiring all the lovely citrus trees. Our stay here was at the end of January and was three weeks in to an eight week holiday... More

As another contributor stated, this property is for sale. It is apparent that the owners have lost the motivation to keep the property as new. During our stay, the weather was good but we didn't dare go into the swimming pool as it didn't look inviting. We stayed at "The Stables" which is quite cosy with a nice view to... More

Thanks for your constructive feedback. I am pleased to report that now we have had some significant rain. Our region has had the worst summer draught for many years.and our grounds can now recover to their former glory. I totally agree with this reviewer, St Leonards does look tired at the moment. It is a difficult decision with our property,... More

We stayed in The Old Dairy for two nights and found it very comfortable, clean and a perfect option in the midst of the wineries. It made a lovely change from hotel accommodation and we appreciated the delicious breakfast supplies. Paul and Daphne were wonderful hosts and although the room is close to their house, we felt we had privacy.... More

We stayed here ten years ago and loved it. We found it to be charming and full of character. This time we found it okay but slightly tired and in need of some TLC (the fact that the property is up for sale may be relevant). During our last stay we loved using the pool but this time the pool... More

St Leonard's was well located for the local vineyards and restaurants. The cottage was nice but in need of a bit of an update. Breakfast ingredients were supplied, which was nice as were the complimentary laundry facilities. Overall a good stay, with a couple of niggles.

We really enjoyed our stay at these cottages. It is located just a few minutes drive outside of town on an active farm. There are orchards and sheep on the grounds. The cottages are very comfortable and clean. The owners are quite friendly and helpful. I wish we could have stayed a bit longer. Highly recommended for a quiet retreat... More
