We have been here so many times and the accommodation just gets better and better. Usually we stay at Raptors Cottage for total peace. The calmness and serenity are just what we need as a break from Cape Town, we can still work as there is wifi here and now they have a power wall installed as well for those Eskom moments. The Barn is also lovely when it is just the two of us, the lounge kitchen and dining room are lovely with the kitchen fitted out by Malco it makes staying here so worth while. With horses and cows and sheep on the farm and plenty of birdlife along with the mountains the outside is as god as the inside. When we come with the family our sn loves the upstairs dorm room of the cottage to get away from us. We have during our many visits discovered great wine farms we have never heard of as well, Oudekloof and Lemberg being yesterdays finds along with Saronsberg, Montpellier, Oude Companies Post, Rijks and Manley. Oakhurst Olive Farm is also worth visit. At night we love the steel boma for a fire sit around with a glass of wine chatting and seeing the stars.

Wonderful views in a perfect setting. Accommodation very comfortable but the bedrooms have no windows but double frosted doors opening into the lounge/kitchen area. We found this most disconcerting and had this been mentioned on the website we would have booked elsewhere.

We stayed in their beautiful cottage called Raptor Cottage. Two rooms downstairs and upstairs loft with 4 single beds ~ perfect for families that maybe want all their kids together in one room. You have your own private swimming pool and the most amazing views of the surrounding mountains and farm. We loved walking the property which has horses, sheep, cows and more. A real countryside feel but close enough to wine farms should you want to explore.

The setting and accommodation is just beautiful. Sarah and her team make sure you have all the little comforts away from home. There are gorgeous hikes & tastings close by. If you are passing through that part of the world - stay at Raptor Rise - you will be well taken care of.

Loved the pool to cool down. Very neat and clean. Were also welcomed after 7pm on a Friday which was much appreciated. There is horses near by and chickens. On the farm which really feels like you are away from the hustle and bustle.

The cottage at Raptor Rise was incredible. It has everything you need and we enjoyed having our own private pool. We loved the secluded area and being apart from the main area.There is ample space for a family of five.Thank you so much

We spent 3 nights in the Foundry Suite which was extremely well equipped and spacious and catered to our busy families needs. Highlights for kids: swimming pool, visiting chickens and open spaces. Highlights for mom: Dishwasher, swimming towels and victorinox knives. Highlights for Dad: the awesome MTB trails on Raptor Rises doorstep.

We stayed in one of the Paddock Rooms. It was a perfect size for my spouse and I. We enjoyed everything about this place, the privacy, tranquility and serenity. Its truly a place to get away from the hustle of the city. We'd definitely be back again.
