About Bella Manga Country Escape

Bellamanga Country Escape is a private sanctuary boasting an abundance of bird and wildlife 15 minutes from Plettenberg Bay.

This old Cape Dutch-style farmhouse, with its original farm buildings, has been sympathetically restored to provide guests with unique and stylish accommodation with a choice of bed and breakfast or self-catering. Spend a romantic night in of our authentic African thatched rondavels, or one of our Sunbird rooms with both bath as well as power shower. Our traditional-style, one-bed en-suite self-catering suites with their large stoep are popular for longer stays.

After a hot dusty day of sightseeing, what better than a dip in our large salt-water pool. A five-minute walk takes you to our self-catering Forest Lodges. With their own pool and independent braai areas they are popular for that perfect bush getaway or family holiday. Fifteen minutes' drive takes you to Plettenberg Bay with its famous white sandy beaches, restaurants and market square.

Alternatively you can 'cruise the Craggs' with its various array of African arts and crafts, mohair shop and local vineyard where you can sit amongst the vines, have lunch and taste their locally produced wines. Our breakfasts are delicious, and we have typical South African braais and evening meals for both meat eaters and vegetarians; this can be arranged with 24-hour notice.

                                      We spent 3 nights in the „Bellamanga Country House“. It was so beautiful, we had a family-room for us five which was very comfortable and cozy. The pool and the whole area is wonderful and very groomed.The breakfast was fantastic- we had the best fruit-salad of the world and a big diversity of warm and tasteful foods.Jenny and Chris, the owners, are so warm and full of hospitality. They try to fulfill every wish and are so helpful!Thanks for the wonderful time in paradise!

                                      Nice country atmosphere. However the pool is a bit too deep for small children

                                      Great accomodation in a very nice environment. The owner were very friendly, the pool was amazing and the breakfast was also very tasty.Thanks for everything.

                                      Very disappointed. Setting and position looked lovely. Interior of cabin was totally run down. For what we were paying - this was not up to scratch. Our neighbours in the other cabin (From Belgium) were equally disappointed. If they just spent a bit of money on decor and equipment then the place would be lovely.
