This 4 ha property belonged to Happy Day Tours form the early 1930s to 1964. They used to bring tour groups onto the overhanging rock, which hangs over approximately 2.5m. They used Mr Clyde Sussens and his tame pet leopard Suzie to pose on the overhanging rock for advertising in the local papers.
In 1964 Happy Day Tours sold the property to a private owner so from then on there was no access back onto the rock. We (Andries & Sue Bruwer) bought the property in September 2000 with the idea of building a house, we started clearing all the invading plants out and discovered the overhanging rock. The neighbours told us that it was on this property, but it was so overgrown that you could not get to it. We decided to open a view site for people to be able to come and see it again, and got such a overwhelming response with so many of the people asking why they could not have coffee and cake with this view, that we decided to open a Coffee Shop. There is not many places in this country where you can sit down and have a meal with such a spectacular view. We started building in August 2002 and opened to the public in December 2002 and have never looked back. We grew due to public demand from a shop that was serving mainly sandwiches, cake and tea to a restaurant that offers anything from breakfast to steaks, salads etc. and there is our scrumptious homemade cakes etc too. All our food is made fresh on the premises. We might not be very fancy but we do it with a lot of love.
The Coffee Shop was closed from 1 March to 15 November 2011 and reopened on 16 November 2011. (Sorry about this but we needed a little rest). Please remember that we offer this unique site for Functions, Weddings, Conferences etc.
We opened our first chalet in August 2006 and now have 4 in total. Especially designed for that pampered tranquil feeling!
We would love to share our unique piece of heaven with you so please contact Sue with enquiries.
