Redford House is a historic country guest house situated at the foot of the Tsitsikama mountains twenty kilometers from Plettenberg Bay in an area known as The Crags. The Crags has become sought after by tourists because of its spectacular mountain and forest scenery and proximity to magnificent beaches and tourist attractions in Plettenberg Bay, Nature’s Valley and Storms River.
In addition it has become the polo mecca of South Africa with many beautiful estates unrivalled anywhere in the world. To the north is a national park stretching towards Addo, to the west the Keurbooms Nature Reserve, to the east the Tsitsikama National Park and to the south is Whiskey Creek Nature Reserve and the sea. This makes it an ideal destination for echo-tourism at its finest.
Redford House is situated on its own 50 acre nature reserve near the famous Kurland Hotel and Polo Estate. It was built by the first settlers to this area when the forests teemed with elephants and buffalo. Enjoy a guided walk in the nature reserve, a Victorian picnic under the oaks, tennis, boating, fishing, or relaxing at the pool. Candlelight dinners can be organized in the old settler’s dining room with stories of the pioneers and their adventures.
