Pragtig, vriendelike rusplek.

Baie goeie sout van die aarde mense! Hulle gaan uit hul pad uit om jou op jou gemak te laat voel. Die kos wat vir ons gemaak is was besonders lekker!

Beautiful, friendly resting place.

Very good salt of the earth people! They go out of their way to make you feel at ease. The food that was made for us was particularly delicious!

Slaap in Melkstal.

Dis 'n pragtige slaapplek - die melkstal is omskep in 5 ruim slaapkamers wat baie stylvol gemeubileer is met 'n lekker groot stort. Elke kamer het 'n stoep met 'n buite-tafel en -stoele. Daar is 'n gesamentlike kuierarea wat bestaan uit 'n sitkamer, eetkamer en kombuis, met 'n lekker kaggel met hout vir die koue aande. Voertuie word onder 'n afdak geparkeer. Ons het 2 nagte hier geslaap en dit baie geniet. Kan dit definitief aanbeveel as 'n heerlike slaapplek.

Sleep in Melkstall.

It's a beautiful place to sleep - the milking shed has been converted into 5 spacious bedrooms that are very stylishly furnished with a nice big shower. Each room has a veranda with an outside table and chairs. There is a common living area consisting of a lounge, dining room and kitchen, with a nice wood burning fireplace for the cold evenings. Vehicles are parked under a canopy. We slept here for 2 nights and really enjoyed it. Can definitely recommend it as a lovely place to sleep.

Mooiste plek in die mooiste omgewing.

Die gastehuis is uit die boonste rakke. Ons was gelukkig om alleen te wees, en kon dus die kombuis- en sitarea vir ons eie gebruik hê. Dit het dit vir ons perfek gemaak. Ons sou wel nie van die opset gehou het as ons met ander gaste moes deel nie. Dit is dus die perfekte plek vir familie-saamkuiers of vriende-saamkuiers. Ongelooflike omgewing en mens kan maar lank bly!

Most beautiful place in the most beautiful surroundings.

The guest house is top notch. We were lucky to be alone, so could have the kitchen and lounge area to ourselves. That made it perfect for us. We would not have liked the setup if we had to share with other guests. It is therefore the perfect place for family get-togethers or friends get-togethers. Incredible surroundings and you can only stay so long!

Onwelkom.

Ek is soontoe om te gaan visvang, my visstokke mag ek nie gebruik het nie en hulle het laat weet hulle kan plan maak met 'n ander stok, geen plan is gemaak nie, dam was vol gras en spruit was heeltemal te laag. Ek het die idee gekry dat daar eintlik weens droogte nie vis is nie. As die visvang swak is dan moet hulle dit op die website afhaal. Ons het later so ongemaklik gevoel dat ons 'n dag vroeër vertrek het en op 'n ander plek gaan bly het. Die gasvrou in beheer was nie eers daar nie, glo op 'n staproete uit vir die naweek. Afrikaans is ook 'n probleem daar.

Unwelcome.

I went there to go fishing, I must not have used my fishing rods and they let me know they could make a plan with another rod, no plan was made, pond was full of grass and creek was way too low. I got the idea that there are actually no fish due to drought. If the fishing is poor then they have to collect it on the website. We later felt so uncomfortable that we left a day earlier and stayed at another place. The hostess in charge was not even there, apparently on a hiking trail for the weekend. Afrikaans is also a problem there.

Branksome Country House 's response

Dankie vir die terugvoer oor u onlangse verblyf by ons. Ek is baie spyt om te verneem dat dit nie aan u verwagtinge voldoen het nie.

Branksome is langs die Sterkspruitrivier geleë, ‘n wêreldklas vlieghengel-bestemming bekend vir sy wildeforel. Alhoewel hengelaars al in die verlede rekordgrootte forelle in ons damme gevang het, is die hoofdoel van die damme van die Oos-Kaapse Hooglande om te dien as ‘n waterleidingstelsel en ons kan nie altyd waarborg dat hengelaars sal kan visvang nie. Ons was daarom baie dankbaar vir die reën en stormagtige weer wat geheers het tydens u verblyf, maar dit het ongelukkig ook beteken dat die waters nie vir hengel geskik was nie.

As lede van die Wildeforel-vereniging, is ons daarby ook verplig om die volhoubaarheid van ons kosbare natuurlike hulpbronne te help en moet ons verseker dat ons gaste van die toepaslike vliëe en hengelgerei gebruik wat vir die plaaslike riviere, damme, en forelle geskik is. Die visstokke wat u by u gehad het was vir baarsvis-hengel geskik, maar ongelukkig nie vir die hengel van forel nie. Soos u self ook aan ons genoem het, is ‘n visstok ‘n persoonlike besitting en was dit moeilik om by iemand anders een vir u te lene te kry.

Dit is jammer dat ek u vertrek met net ‘n paar minute gemis het, aangesien ek graag die aangeleentheid in persoon met u sou wou bespreek het. Ek was nie vir die naweek uit op ‘n staproete nie, maar het slegs vir ‘n kort rukkie in ons pragtige berge gaan stap. Ek wens u voorspoed met u toekomstige visvang-ekspedisies.
