This is part 4 in my Getaway Tuesdays series – if you missed parts 1, 2 & 3 , hop on over here:
Now being a rather small village, McGregor doesn’t have a Ster Kinekor or Nu Metro movie cinema… But what they do have is really quite cool…
If you’re in the mood for a movie or maybe a bit of live music, the Wahnfried home in Bree St is where you need to be. You won’t see the latest blockbusters here, but instead you’ll be taken on a little cinematic adventure of sorts.
Owners, Michael and Freddie, purchased this Moroccon-style property with the goal of doing something that will benefit the village. Today you’ll find musical events held every Sunday as well as films shown on Thursdays and/or Fridays throughout the year.Green Gables Country Inn Dining Room. They do hearty country meals in a beautifully quirky setting. They also house the Village Pub which of course is a great way to hang out with a few locals.
Oh and get this – the pub still works on the “honesty” system & whoever gets there first assumes the role of the barman. #OnlyInTheCountryWhen we had reached our last day in the area, we pretty much thought we had seen what there was to be seen. But we were wrong… We still had some animal loving, grappa tasting & al fresco dining to do!
The Eseltjiesrus Donkey Sanctuary is a total must for animal lovers of all ages. Here they provide a permanent refuge for abused, neglected and elderly donkeys, many of which had literally been worked to the bone before they arrived at the sanctuary.
Donkeys are such peaceful, loving animals. It’s tough to think that these donkeys have been through so much, but it’s also really awesome to see them all happy & healthy in this setting.Next up was the Tanagra Wine & Guestfarm – providers of some lovely accommodation options, producers of some beautiful wines (of which I had to take a few bottles home), but also makers of real deal grappa: Our final stop before heading back to the big city was the Lady Grey Restaurant at Lord’s Guest Lodge. The setting here is quite breathtaking with their lush gardens and uninterrupted views of the Langeberg Mountain Range…
