We are 2km just outside Winterton, on route R600 towards Ladysmith. Lovely garden , paradise like feel and atmosphere. We are about 350 km from Johannesburg, about 275 km from Durban, perfect halfway and overnight stay on route to the coast!
The establishment was very clean and comfortable with all the amenities available...but what stood out for us was the service provided by the owners (Julita & Schalk) and their staff. The breakfast was a 'feast' and we left feeling we 'got good value for our money'!
