Beautiful property in a somewhat isolated spot in the midst of stunning mountains. Our rooms were self-catering, but the town is only a 10min drive, so we were able to stock up easily on basic food & drinking water. It's very peaceful and quiet, with very friendly owners, we thoroughly enjoyed our 2-night stay here.

We spent two nights at Raptor Rise and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It is a working farm with self catering units that are well equipped and comfortable. The view of the mountains is quite spectacular both for sunrise and sunset. The owners are friendly, knowledgeable and made a number of very helpful recommendations for our stay in Tulbagh.

Many thanks to Averil and Bill for a most comfortable, relaxing two nights accommodation. Although a bit small for a self catering unit, it was very well appointed with adequate facilities. Sundowners on the patio were made all the more enjoyable by a beautiful view of the surrounding mountains.

Our hosts ensured we were comfortable and well informed. Breakfasting al fresco as swallows swooped to and fro was a joy and the hosts' dogs gave us friendly and welcome company. Relaxing with a book by the pool with magnificent sunsets across dramatic mountains was the stuff of dreams! Highly recommended.

Beautiful place to stay.. Lovely gardens with splash pool. I enjoy staying at Raptor Rise because of the self catering and you can have your braai. Did not realize I needed to empty the bin so that was not nice coming back from an outing to find that still in room. I don't like spiders so for me its important...

Absolutely beautiful and idyllic setting to escape to absolute peace and quiet of farm life yet close enough to town to pop out for a quick breakfast or dinner. We stayed in the guest houise which was ideal for our family of 5 plus 2 jack russel's We will be back.
