The property consists of 19 hectares of rolling hills, a combination of beautiful coastal riverine bush and grasslands unique to the Eastern Cape of South Africa. The Manor house, set on one of the highest points in the area, boasts spectacular mountain and sea views, with large sections of coastline, and the surfing mecca of Jeffrey’s Bay visible from the veranda.
Three self-catering wooden cottages (Yellowwood, Coral-Tree and Inkberry), are set around the picturesque Broughton Dam. The cottages come equipped with a stove, a microwave oven, cutlery, crockery and glassware for 4 guests (or 2 guests in the case of the single bedroom Inkberry cottage), pots and pans, and BBQ accessories. Each cottage has an undercover carport, shaded veranda and private BBQ (braai) facilities.
The Island Nature Reserve forms the southern boundary of the property, allowing access to over 30km of horse riding and walking trails through the natural coastal forest. An abundance of small indigenous game can also be found on the property, including Bushbuck, Duiker, Steenbok, and on occasion, Porcupine and Bush Pig. Five kilometres of walking/jogging trails are currently being developed through the indigenous forest, grasslands and gardens of the property for guests to enjoy.
