Rickety Bridge Wine Estate is a picturesque property nestled into the slopes of the Franschhoek Mountains with views of the Wemmershoek mountain range. There is a nostalgic feel to the estate, although that is not to say it is dated by any means, rather the rooms have a timeless and classic look and offer you all the comforts of home and more. With the accommodation on the actual wine estate, you couldn’t be in a better location to go wine tasting, enjoy a cellar tour, or just simply enjoy the beauty of the grounds. This combined with the great service and food makes Rickety Bridge a truly idyllic estate to stay on.
Rickety Bridge is ideal for wine lovers, allowing them the chance to taste the estate’s wine as well as tour the cellars. Beyond this, the beauty of the grounds and rooms, as well as the great location, means that everyone will enjoy their stay.
The estate has its own restaurant called Paulina’s where guests can enjoy lunch from a bistro-style menu as well as views of the vineyards.
The three en-suite Nineteenth-Century rooms at Rickety Bridge have been stylishly renovated and offer all the amenities you could need. All rooms have air conditioning, underfloor heating, satellite television, mini bars, tea and coffee facilities, hairdryers, irons and ironing boards and free wi fi connectivity.
