Out where rugged coastline meets pristine fynbos forest, where the stars shine brighter and heaven meets earth, style and comfort abound at the hidden gem that is T’Niqua Stable Inn. Described by its guests as a ‘diamond in the rough’ this 4-star guesthouse is a nature lover’s haven offering horse riding or carriage trips to an exquisite viewpoint and hiking, cycling and bird-watching trails from its doorstep. The meticulous design and distinctively crafted finishes round off the classic stable-yard theme with four double bedrooms leading onto an ample yet cosy living area housing a fireplace and indoor braai, while the two charming family suites upstairs have lovely views of the sea and surrounding landscape. The garden boma has been the scene of many fireside tales on balmy evenings with the distant sounds of crashing waves and soft nickering of the horses as the sun sets behind the trees and the moon rises over Robberg. A new swimming pool with an ocean backdrop will soon offer an afternoon lull from the summer heat. All rooms feature en-suite bathrooms and kitchenettes and are serviced daily. The guesthouse is pet-friendly, accommodating all family members, and features three secure paddocks for guests who want to enjoy the scenic trails on their own horses. The resident dogs – Zorro, Lady and Jenna – are just as welcoming to their furry guests as their owners, Bettina and Michiel, are to their human guests. T’Niqua’s function venue is an idyllic setting for intimate weddings with the majestic Percheron horses and wedding carriage placing the cherry on top with a touch of elegance. Horses have long been symbols of nobility, strength, freedom, loyalty and grace. The gentle giants, Mandla [meaning ‘power’ in Zulu] and Storm, are the epitome of these qualities as they willingly transport their guests back in time to bygone days of horse-drawn wagons. They are available for weddings, matric farewells, and any other special occasions – or simply an afternoon ramble to the cliffs overlooking the ocean for sundowners. Book them for photo shoots with a choice of backgrounds with a 100-year old farm wagon.
