Exceptional 10,0
Not so 'Rickety'
My wife and I have stayed in the Franschhoek-Stellenbosch 'corridor' many times. This was our first time at Rickety Bridge. The name refers to the old bridge made of railway ties. However, that bridge has been replaced by a single-lane modernized bridge. This bridge symbolizes our overall impression: the farm is old but in immaculate condition. The manor house is gorgeous and all rooms have been redone with all the mod cons. Other than a 'rickety' door-knob to our room (the Chardonnay Room), there was nothing broken down about this place. We absolutely loved it and hope to be back sometime soon!
