The weekend I went to the Old Mac Daddy

Last weekend The Boyf, a few friends (including blogger friend Betty Bake) and I went away to the Old Mac Daddy in Elgin. It was fabulous and so relaxing. 

Since its only an hour from Cape town, the Old Mac Daddy is a fabulous place to take a mini break from the city. The luxury trailer park (plus villa) boasts stunning valley views, unique accommodation and a very chilled enviroment. If you have never been, I highly recommend you check it out.

Here are some photos from our weekend(taken by The Boyf & I)....
 Here is one of the signs we saw on the way there and the path to the restaurant
 The pool was pretty, but it was a bit too cold to try it while we were there 
 Since this is mainly a "trailer" park, lovely airstream trailer's can be seen all around.
 We stayed in "Daddy's Villa", which is the only self catering house available.
The inside of  Daddy's Villa had very simple, neutral coloured decor.
My favourite things about the Villa, besides the views, were definitely the Smeg fridge and the outdoor bath (which I was lucky enough to get to use, since The Boyf and I got to stay in the main bedroom)

  10. This is where you went to? When you said Elgin, I thought boring dairy farm at best. I didn't think that you'd be living it up. *bitch*
