“Perfect house for a lovely weekend away”
Reviewed 23 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Just left Barry House and want to go back! Had such a wonderful weekend here with 10 friends and 3 little kiddies. The house is huge so we all had our own space and it is equipped with anything you may need. Every care was taken by the owners (jugs of water next to the bed, dining room set for dinner, wood in all the fireplaces, etc). Very close to the best wineries and great to braai on the porch, looking at the view of mountains and grazing horses. Highly recommend it for families or a group of friends.

Thank you for your wonderful review! Glad that you found everything you needed to enjoy your weekend so that you could just relax on the porch with a glass of wine, good company, and the tantalising smell of the braai!

“Great weekend away with friends”
Reviewed 19 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This is the third year running we stayed at Barry House on Riverton near Robertson. It is a great long weekend away spot for our large group of friends and performs as a base to explore the greater Robertson wine area. It is a charming house with a colonial feel of old. Rooms is spacious and well equipped. Every day the house and kitchen was cleaned for a small extra fee and our firewood was replenished. The farm owners are extremely charming and welcoming. We will be back next year again.

We had the great pleasure to stay for the month of January, 2014 at the Berry Homestead. every am and pm,While sitting on the front veranda we thoroughly enjoyed the vista;the horse paddocks,the yineyards,orchards and the mountains in the distance. a tranquil million $ dollar view. Duncan , Natasha Berry and the farm manager Francios were very helpful and excellent hosts,
Thank you so much for the most enjoyable stay. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment from the beauty of the farm .the history of the Berry family to the eclectic mix of the most fabulous literature in the family library. Your entire house was very comfortable and inviting.the living room the entertainment room ,wifi,comfortable cozy beds, etec ,etec.etc.
We would highly recommend the Berry Homestead. If we didn't so far away in North America we would certaintly return for our winter vacations.

Thank you for your wonderful review! We were honoured that you made Barry House your base for a few weeks whilst you stayed in South Africa. You certainly became part of our family and we fondly remember being spoilt by delicious home-made apple pies as well! Pity you live so far away as we would love to see you again. All the best, Duncan & Natasha
