Welcome to our Herolds Bay Resort
. We cater for Weddings, Functions, Conferences, Music Shows and Outdoor Events.
Down to Earth is situated 17km outside George, close to the beautiful seaside village of Herold’s Bay. The resort consists of a Restaurant, an Open-air Venue and a number of accommodation units.
Our services include options of either an indoor or outdoor venue, catering, activities and accommodation. Our Restaurant is also open to the public on Wednesday evenings and weekends. Most of the building materials, ie clay and timber, are sourced from the property.
The Bush Lapa
The Bush Lapa, set in an African rustic theme, provides traditional food cooked on an open fire. The open-air setting is quite unique, one can sit around the fire, gaze at the stars, or have a grand stand view of Mossel Bay in the distance.
In the one corner, an intimate stage provides the perfect setting for a host of local artists to display their musical talents. The menu includes oxtail and lamb potjies served with a variety of vegetable dishes or an authentic South African spitbraai.
The Restaurant, with the appropriated name “Down to Earth”, was built with clay, straw and timber and provides a rugged but stylish interior with high wooden ceilings and stained glass gables.
It also has a huge wooden deck overlooking the green rolling landscape with the blue ocean in the background. The restaurant provides traditional country style dishes including favourites like oven baked lam shank, deboned pork rib stuffed with dried fruit and bacon and brie parcels.
