Rickety Bridge Wine Estate lies 3km from the centre of charming Franschhoek and offers 4 star accommodation in two beautiful guest houses.
Rickety Bridge Manor House has three stylishly renovated 19th-century bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom. Relax into classic Cape Dutch furniture, share meals in the fire-heated lounge and country kitchen and find spaciousness in the high wooden beamed ceilings. There is a private pool area to while away those warm summer afternoons. The Manor House is a country getaway for grown ups and older families; regrettably no children under 10 are allowed unless the villa is booked for exclusive use.
Spend your time sampling farm-produced wines in the tasting room and enjoy delicious bistro lunches at Paulina's, the onsite restaurant (lunch only). Rickety Bridge is a wedding destination venue of note, with a choice of sublime spots scattered around the estate that are ideal for ceremonies and receptions.
