Set in wonderful, tranquil surroundings, with the superb hosts, Lisa and Mike, to look after you, this is the perfect place for a break from the rat race.

There is a bewildering choice of B&B's around the Midlands Meander. We were looking for a two night stopover on a road trip from Botswana to the Wild Coast and chose Glen Afton because of its strong reviews on this site. We weren't disappointed.

We were blown away by the "welcome to our family" approach of Glen Afton. Julia and her family constantly check in to see that we were comfortable and they were ready to help out and guide us all manners. You must take the scenic tour and explanation around the farm with Julia and the home made patties for breakfast are...
