My first trip to this establishment was unfortunately cancelled (from my side), but I wrote a review on the hosts' helpful attention anyway. This time I stayed for a night... will definitely go back! Owner run, amazing food, very comfortable rooms (I stayed in the main house, upstairs). Stunning afternoon coffee spot on the veranda, overlooking the nearby mountains. Great...

Very friendly and helpful owners! Delicious dinner and the best roast potatoes ever! We slept well in the comfy and cozy beds. I was impressed at the no noise for a farm at night. We will definitely visit again. Thank you for everything.

I booked this bnb as I was looking for a quiet stopover driving back to the ecape from kzn. Given the excellent ratings on TripAdviser, I was surprised at the reasonable rates, and surprised that they had a vacancy at such short notice. The accommodation is simple, but warm and comfortable. I was sorry that I had arrived just too...

We are retired & usually travel for around 3 months of the year, both locally & overseas, and are able to do our homework. Although the guesthouse itself is pleasant, it is both the country...

Accomodation-- Bedroom great with hot blankets. Bathroom no Shower. Wooden floors can be a bit noisy, and sound of talking are heard. Food--- Both Breakfast and Dinner was excelent. Dining room--- a little small for a full house. In general the rating was very good and the hospitality very Good. We will come again. Tony

I spent a night at Peacehaven in early April. Kit was a great hostess and the rest of the staff were also very friendly. The rooms were very spacious and clean. The meals were very good as well. It is idyllically located below Mount Currie offering great views. The gardens boast a wide variety of roses. I would definitely recommend...

Pat made us feel so at home. She was so accommodating with our meal requests and the food was delicious. Our room was spacious and comfortable with a lovely view over the garden and surrounding countryside. We slept like logs in the very comfy bed. Our every need was catered for. We will certainly recommend Peacehaven to friends and family.
