Rickety Bridge Manor House

Nestled against the hillside and on the outskirts of Franschhoek, the Rickety Bridge Manor House overlooks the vineyards and magnificent mountains. This historic Cape Dutch manor house has been providing visitors with a welcoming rest stop for almost two centuries. Three luxuriously appointed rooms ensure a relaxing and peaceful atmosphere.

Every detail of the Rickety Bridge Manor House has been carefully considered, from the classic Cape Dutch furniture to the fire-warmed lounge and country kitchen. The dramatic yellow-wood beamed ceilings and polished pine floors narrate stories of the past.

The establishment offers three double rooms, each with an en-suite bathroom. The rooms are adorned in a luxurious and tasteful manner, providing guests with all the amenities one would expect from a five-star hotel. The rooms are equipped with cable/satellite TV, minibars, air conditioning, underfloor heating, and heated towel rails.

To ensure guests’ comfort, the rooms are supplied with bathrobes, premium bedding, hairdryers, and extra linen and towels. The property is entirely smoke-free, with a separate tub and shower for added convenience. Guests are welcome to use the verandah, providing a picturesque view of the Wemmershoek Mountains.

Breakfast can be savoured in our charming breakfast room or by the swimming pool, overlooking Franschhoek’s gorgeous mountains. Guests can also enjoy award-winning and internationally renowned wines while relaxing on comfortable leather couches by the fireplace. Additionally, our team of expert chefs can treat guests to a gourmet lunch.
