Welcome to Fairview House in The Crags on the famous Garden Route! In 1980 the Rattray family bought the farm “Fairview”, a 68 acre headland at The Crags, between Plettenberg Bay and Natures Valley, on the Southern Cape coastline.

Here Peter and Gillian built the most elegant home for their retirement and set about making a garden of some renown and it was here that Gillian wrote two of her books, “A Cape Country Chronicle” and “In a Country Garden”. David and Nicky took over this property in 2003.

Martin Rattray, Peter and Gillian’s youngest son designed all the buildings on the property in the traditional Cape Dutch style. Martin also built himself the most spectacular house to the west, with incredible views over the mountains. After Martin’s death in 2018, the Rattray’s undertook to restore and renovate this beautiful building and turn it into an exclusive eight room hotel called Fairview House.

Andrew and Anel Rattray together with their daughters Emily, Charlotte and Sophie moved to Fairview in March of 2019 to oversee the project and get it off the ground.

Fairview was named for its extraordinary outlook over the Keurbooms indigenous forest into several mountain ranges. It is a 10 minute drive from whale watching at Keurbooms beach, 10 minutes from Plettenberg Bay with its gorgeous Robberg Peninsular and spectacular golf courses, and 15 minutes from Nature’s Valley with its beautiful beach and forest walks. Kurland Polo field and many wildlife sanctuaries are also close by. The Plett wineries are also within a 10 minute drive. It is an ideal springboard for the myriad of attractions of this famous coastline, but far enough away from the bustle.

Fairview House consiste of 8 rooms, 1 standard room, 5 luxury rooms and 2 deluxe suite. Most of the rooms have a spectacular view of the Keurbooms Valley and Outeniqua Mountains.





Fairview Old Main House has three bedrooms. The master bedroom with en-suite bath and shower, opens onto a private verandah. The upstairs accommodation is ideal for a family. It consists of two bedrooms with a shared bathroom (shower). The kitchen forms part of an open plan sitting room with fireplace.
A deep covered verandah leading off the formal sitting room has a spectacular view.

Staying at Fairview was an unexpected treat. It was as if our grandparents left us the keys to their gracious old home, complete with family antiques and photographs, grand piano and books, and told us to make ourselves at home. The spectacular view to distant hills from the huge veranda, walled herb gardens, the path through the fynbos to the swimming pool, our large wallpapered bedroom with private patio, complete with old wisteria and lavender, made us feel we had stepped back in time and like Goldilocks, slept illegally in someone else’s house! The staff were gracious and helpful, and Willemien felt like an old friend! We were lucky enough to have the whole house to ourselves as no one else was staying. A memorable stay.
Superb. 5 out of 5
