It’s that time of year again where you can feel that year-end rush approaching. People are scrambling and putting the pressure on to make the most of the last few months of the year. My body is certainly feeling it. It’s been a busy year thus far and I know my body is run down as I’ve been getting the flu so often. From work schedules to school runs and extra-murals, there’s hardly any time to just sit back and relax these days.
This is why I was so happy to hear from Experience Days South Africa – a new division of Experience Days UK and Experience Days USA. Experience Days, a global Experience Gift Company, offers 1000’s of unique activity gift certificates across the UK and the US, and now South Africa. From Food Tours to Racecar Driving, Flight Lessons to Wine Tasting, Skydiving to Pamper Days, the range of activities offered includes both the relaxing and the heart-pounding.
I was given the opportunity to try out one of their experiences and while the Pamper Days and shopping trips were very tempting, I decided to opt for something our little family so badly needed – a little break away from the madnesses.
We decided to visit the town of Montagu and stayed at the House On The Hill on Glen Eden Farm.
Nestled on the outskirts of the Twistniet Nature Reserve, the House on the Hill is self-catered accommodation which sleeps four people. It has a cosy living area, fully equipped kitchen and outdoor dining area. The neighbouring countryside is just truly sublime, known for its agriculture with sprawling vineyards and orchards as far as the eye can see.
With hiking trails, a fishing dam and a petting zoo on site we really didn’t need anything else to keep the kids entertained. Of course, the cute animals stole their hearts, especially Cody the sweetest Alpaca on earth! From the moment we arrived, Cody could not stop staring at me and followed my tracks! I missed him the moment we left.
The house on the hill also has its own private little garden which we absolutely adored spending time out there. The backyard view took our breath away!
Although our stay was short, it was just what the Doctor ordered. What I love about the Experience Days concept, is that not only can you purchase an experience for yourself – you can purchase an experience as a gift for someone else who you’d like to treat. You will receive instant Email Certificate Delivery once you book! How amazing would it be to receive an Experience as a gift?
I left the farm feeling refreshed and ready to take on the new week!
Are you feeling that year-end push? I’d love to hear.
