Redcliffe EC
For the EC guys

I have a booking for accommodation at Redcliffe in the Winterberg mountains for the 17th and 18th June that I'm no longer able to use. I have not paid a deposit so I'm not going to lose out anything but thought that I'd mention it so someone here can benefit.

Thursday the 16th is a public holiday and the Friday is a school holiday.

This is one of my favourite spots in the whole EC and hardly anybody knows about it. I'd rate the trip at least on a par with a trip through Baviaans. It's 260km from PE on the road between Adelaide and Tarkastad. 200km of tar to Adelaide and then 60km of one of my very favourite gravel roads in the entire EC as it climbs up into the Winterberg mountains. Redcliffe is a very comfortable, well equiped, farmhouse on beautiful grounds. 5 large bedrooms, most en suite. There is a maid who bakes farm bread every morning and they also supply fresh milk and plenty of firewood. All you need to take is your food. It's an amazing bargain at R220 a person per night.

Herman has first option until this evening but if he can't take it I suggest you jump at the chance if you are in the EC. You can extend the booking either side and if you have more time you can take an awesome drive from here to Hogsback and make a nice round trip.

Just sorry we can't go but we have been 3 times already this year!


PS. This thing is not allowing me to attach pics at the moment. I'll try again later or email me and I'll send you some. ian at ianfairley dot com
