As we head into the school holidays, it’s a wonderful time for families to reconnect – and what better way than a road trip and getaway to the country?
There’s no denying the nostalgia of a small town like Greyton where kids still ride their bikes in the street, and you can walk from shop to restaurant to cute boutique admiring the buildings, quiet bustle and charm of the country. Technology takes a back seat unless you’re a guest about to Instagram a tasty picnic in The Post House garden of course. Collect goodies from the Saturday morning market or pop into the hot new Fig Tree Deli (Open Friday-Sunday) and build your own delicious feast. Board games, cards and hot chocolate can add to the fun as you enjoy some unplugged family time outdoors (or in our dining room if the weather protests). Mum and dad can order wines from our carefully curated wine list including local Overberg vintages as the pace of a simpler life soon washes away the chaos of the city.
If strolls, picnics and sunbeams are a little too slow for you, bring your mountain bikes and head off on a trail. Our Linger Longer Sunday Checkout means you can hit the trails, or the town, and still get back in time to enjoy a hearty breakfast now served until twelve, with checkout at 1 pm in Winter*. See, we don’t rush things out here. If the kids are too young to join in on a morning ride, don’t worry; child minder services can be pre-arranged while you adventure out, or even if you’d like to book a romantic dinner in town.
Our July Winter Special makes Greyton a budget-friendly getaway with children under twelve staying for Free when accompanied by two adults* so go on and choose a slow, heartwarming country escape with the kids.
Dassiesfontein makes an interesting stopover on your to/from Greyton with its treasures & homemade foods! (Find them on the N2 between Botrivier and Caledon)
