Need time out? This was a fantastic place to be. Warm and friendly, kids had a wonderful time swimming and roaming on the farm. Beautiful accommodation and charming spaces. Will recommend any time for a break away and a good rest.

Everything about Waylands is perfect, from the service to the food and the decor. We were made to feel incredibly welcome and it felt like visiting old friends. Thanks for preserving this piece of history

Waylands is a small piece of paradise.The accommodation was extremely comfortable and Pieter and Carl must be commended for their attention to detail. We found Carls knowledge of the local history fascinating.The meals were as good as you will find in any top restaurant.We can highly recommend Waylands. The drive was scenic and well worth the effort.

Waylands is a treat! The grand old house is exquisitely decorated and takes you back to times gone by, it is perfectly set in the most magnificent valley and offers the traveller a variety of things to do.The delicious food is beautifully presented and the hosts go out of their way to make you feel right at home. It makes the perfect destination for someone looking to get away from it all yet still be pampered in luxury.
