Just had the best “Girls Wine Weekend” at the Country House - chilled and relaxing with a hearty indoor fire each evening and the best linen and duvets for the chilly nights!! … The staff and service was excellent, and Jennifer, the GM, went out of her way to make our stay so amazing!! She even sorted out our itinerary for a day of wine tasting in the beautiful Plett Winelands!! Thank you Kay&Monty, we will be back!!

We visited Rare Earth for lunch as a family group, and were made very welcome even though we had not booked. We sat at a long wooden table with benches, overlooking hectares of green pastures, and beyond them to the Outeniqua mountains, miles away. The venue itself is stylish and modern without being cold and featureless. We were given a lovely wine-tasting, and then decided that we'd order their own bubbly - called Shampoo - it is a very pleasant sparkling white wine which is produced on the farm there. After that came a "tapas-style" lunch, with lots of lovely treats brought out on bread-boards, and served with home-made bread in earthen pots. All in all we had a fabulous few hours at Rare Earth. The children played on the extensive lawns and I couldn't recommend it highly enough. It would also make a great venue for a wedding or other type of party.

A new addition to the growing Plett wine route and it's a gem the menu is different presentation is faultless and the taste is superb - young wines fruity and tasty - a must when in the area The farm setting with the small dam is an ideal place for a function
