                    [post_content] => A visit to Sue Tarrs Summerhouse at Folly Hill will transport you into another world. Situated not far from Hilton Village on a smallholding, Sue has created a tranquil, country retreat in which you can escape. The Summerhouse used to be an old milking parlour and many Winterskloof residents used to walk to Folly Hill to fetch their milk. The old milking pens and feeding troughs provide a backdrop to the carefully arranged displays.

Browse through a wonderful selection of gifts, decor items, selected kitchen and tableware as well as an array of silk flowers. Bring your container with you and have your silk flowers arranged.

We are Lou Harvey stockists, carry a selection of Nguni skins from northern Natal and a range of Thokomala hand crocheted blankets, scarves and beanies, made by a rural KwaZulu-Natal community.

The nursery specialises in old fashioned plants and perennials for the garden and has a wide selection of plants and roses suitable for a cold climate.

The old calf pens are now a cosy rustic restaurant, La Popote. Enjoy a lazy breakfast or lunch under the trees or tuck into bowls of hot soup in front of a fire on chilly days.
(Booking has become essential)
Gift vouchers are available.

                    [post_content] => Manufacturers of Hammocks and swinging outdoor furniture. Customisable hammock designs and colours, with an African arts and crafts feel. Order online or contact us for a quote.

Unique to Heavenly Hammocks is our extensive range of crush dyed indoor and outdoor hanging furniture. Because we dye our fabrics by hand we can produce any shade you require to blend in with your own particular colour scheme at home. The crushdyed technique we use brings about a two tone or mottled finish to the canvas, which is what sets us apart from all other markers of hanging leisure furniture.

We take pride in the superb quality of our hammocks thereby ensuring that they will last you a very long time. The canvas we use is made from 100 percent pure cotton, making our hammocks extremely cool and comfortable to relax in. At the same time they are very durable because we only use a tightly woven, boxweave canvas so the fabric will never stretch or weaken. In addition we insert steel thimbles at each end of the hammock thereby preventing any loosening of the ropes which can so easily occur as a result of the constant friction caused by a rope or a carabine hook.

Our Promise
Our hammocks have the style, the strength as well as the comfort needed to guarantee you lifelong luxury. So treat yourself to a Heavenly Hammock and turn your leisure into heavenly pleasure!
