The Barn House

Getaway (South Africa) - - THE FINAL CUT -

UN­RATED

Sur­rounded by moun­tains, Prince Al­bert is blessed with views, but the one from Barn House is quite sur­real: farm fields dot­ted with fey-look­ing an­gora goats and the Swart­berg Moun­tains out­lined against that in­tense blue sky. The Barn House was built as a home for a fam­ily rather than for rental; it’s very well­fur­nished with a lot of char­ac­ter, in­clud­ing some fan­tas­tic art. Aside from the stoep, the nat­u­ral pool is a high­light here. Set away from the house, with a built-in braai and shaded din­ing ta­ble as well as an out­door shower, it’s a very pri­vate set-up, screened by olive trees, with the same amaz­ing moun­tain view. The Barn House is in close prox­im­ity to and man­aged by neigh­bour­ing Den­nehof (see next page), where Ria Steyn is on hand to ad­vise on any­thing from restau­rant book­ings to tours. ROOM TIP It has three bed­rooms (two en-suite) but the bed con­fig­u­ra­tion will suit two cou­ples and two chil­dren rather than six adults. COST From R4 500 (sleeps six). CON­TACT den­nehof.co.za
