Aloe Aloe

We love this time of year and when the four species of aloes on our property are in full bloom. Here's an idea of aloe ferox surrounding Sandymount Cottage with fiery orange. 


Another top-class concert on at Richmond House Museum and Music Room aka Classics at the Castle this Friday evening 12 June. We're so fortunate to offer fine classical music to guests staying and the Port Alfred community. Visit here for more details.

A great 2014 and an even better 2015 ahead

We had a very busy peak season time and met many lovely guests holidaying in Port Alfred. The weather was also perfect for holiday maker!

Here's what a young family had to say about their stay in Fig Tree Cottage:

"Fig Tree Cottage is a stunning haven of peace and quiet set in glorious nature - while also only a few minutes walk from Kiddie's Beach and a quick drive away from Kelly Beach... The cottage is immaculately and tastefully furnished, with every convenience (down to heated towel rails). There were also thoughtful touches everywhere - such as the herbs, fresh from the garden, placed next to the bath in the evening, the wine chilled for us on arrival, and the handwritten notes delivered with our laundry...We couldn't have hoped for a more special place to start our holiday in! Hope to be back."
