TO THE LIGHT HOUSE

My hus­band and I re­cently spent a week­end at The Light House Bou­tique Suites in Paarl, and boy did it take some con­vinc­ing to get me to leave. We’d been in­vited for their G&Tea Ex­pe­ri­ence, which in­volved a dis­til­la­tion demon­stra­tion by Wilderer Gin, fol­lowed by gin cock­tails and af­ter­noon tea. We stayed in the Bed­ford Manor suite, which has a ma­hogany four-poster bed, a read­ing nook where you can eas­ily while away an af­ter­noon and a lit­tle bal­cony with a view of the moun­tains.

It was a week­end of five-star ser­vice, gin and bub­bly sip­ping, and eat­ing scones slathered in cream – how does one go back to nor­mal life after that?

The G&Tea week­ends are set to be­come a reg­u­lar event, so be sure to ask when the next one is when you’re book­ing a room. (Maybe for Valen­tine’s Day?) Dar­ryl and Hen­drik will take good care of you, re­gard­less!
