Overview

Dick and Toni Meerburg welcome visitors to the Manor House of Withycombe Farm, built in 1903 in the Cape Dutch style for Capt. Paye, overlooking 60 acres of prime export fruit growing land.

The home offers a large guest lounge with French doors opening onto the salt-water pool patio. Here there is quiet, comfortable seating, and a fireplace. For the businessman the Library offers working space and facilities for fax and E-mail. An informal Bar , also opens onto the pool and outside entertainment area, where visitors can enjoy making a traditional South African "Braai" (BBQ). Further to the facilities around the north facing pool area there is a large thatched gazebo on the northwest side of the house. In total there is 250 square meters of paved outdoor entertainment area. The breakfast room has French doors leading onto a sheltered patio and a cosy fireplace to warm winter mornings.

Guest Comments

Great location, tucked away from any main road. We stayed in one of the cottages set in the gardens with a pool. Our cottage had its own entrance, was very well equipped and spotlessly clean. We will definitely be back next year.
- Lizette Du Plessis

Withycombe is a very comfortable place to stay. We were well looked after. The proprietor, Dick, is a charming gentleman. The only suggestion I could make is that he could save himself some money by turning down the temperature on his geysers! Otherwise the rooms are comfortable, clean, spacious and beautifully furnished.

Withycombe is well situated in Constantia. It is a comfortable distance from sights of Cape Town such as the V&A Waterfront (20 minutes), Muizenberg and Kalk Bay (20 minutes), the Newlands Stadiums (10 minutes) and of course the Constantia Wine Route (2 minutes). For those not so interested in being a tourist, it is in a very peaceful and quiet location.

We will certainly go back and recommend to anyone looking for a lovely bed and breakfast to stay!

- Amy Cunliffe

Room was musty, poorly ventilated, dirty ( stains on couch and bed) cobwebs on walls and above aircon. We forfeited our deposit and moved out
- Dave Coates

I would definitely recommend Withycombe Lodge. Pleasant, friendly, accommodating.
- Vanessa Appleton

I stayed in the self-catering room - was great.
