Excitingly different, this farm-style retreat in the Drakensberg Mountains is a place of legendary culinary delight.
With a passion for cooking and a flair for ingenuity, Richard and Mouse Poynton have created a rare experience in their idyllic mountain setting near Giant’s Castle.
Every one of Richard’s sumptuous meals – more personalised than any redefines the concept of flavour.
Blazing log fires on chilly evenings and choice wines from the cellar make perfect accompaniments.
Suites and mini-suites have been theme-decorated with pure originality. Carefully selected curiosities, assorted relics of yesteryear and hand-crafted comforts produce an ethos of farm-style leisure. Each suite has its own verandah with wonderful views of the mountains and a glistening, trout-stocked dam.
Nature provides mountain trails, horse riding, fishing, birding, and swimming in mountain pools. The area is also known for its fauna, flora and San rock art. For most guests, however, Cleopatra’s enthusiastic celebration of food, flavour and freshness is rated first attraction.
