Toomuchloveliness: Weekend away

Staycation at Blackheath Lodge for a Weekend Away

I’m a born and bred Cape Townian who keeps falling in love with my city all over again. I once read this quote about London, Samuel Johnson said, “when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life“. On occasion I feel a little tired of life and it is normally this city…

Spier, Stellenbosch, Winelands

A Night Away with Spier in Stellenbosch

I spend as much time as possible in beautiful Stellenbosch. It is always a highlight to indulge in a night away in the Winelands. We recently enjoyed an night over at Spier where we were treated like royalty. We had a wonderful experience staying with them and below is our experience and a few of…

Sleepover in the suburbs with The Vineyard Hotel

We visited The Vineyard hotel for a little escape and joined them for a date night dinner! We had a wonderful dinner at The Square restaurant for their wine and dine experience. The chef created an amazing tasting menu with highlights being the most amazing aubergine dish which wanted to celebrate all aspects of the…

A night over at The Marly in Camps Bay

I am a Cape Townian born and bred but I actually spend very little time in Camps Bay.¬†Or even any of the beaches at all. Our night over in Camps Bay actually felt like a proper holiday because we got to explore a suburb we almost never visit! We arrived early and watched the clouds…

The Alphen for the perfect weekend stay

We recently spent the night at The Alphen in Constantia which is only about ten minutes from home. I sadly spent the Saturday morning at work. We then grabbed lunch at Cheyne’s in Houtbay and headed to the hotel via the nursery in Constantia. We were able to have a night away whilst still being…

A Quick Round up of The Botriver Spring Weekend

I don’t tend to write posts diary style but we had such a lovely weekend away exploring Botriver that I thought I would squeeze in a quick post and share our weekend. I have really fallen for the little town of Botriver which is truly charming. I spend a lot of time in between farms…

Botriviera Spring Weekend and Our Weekend Plans

I almost never do pre-event write ups. I have a pretty strict policy that I only write about events after I have attended them. However, there is always an exception to the rule. And this exception is the Botriviera Spring Weekend! I am a huge fan of a lot of the wine that comes out…

The Radisson Hotel: A Seaside Gem

As some one who grew up on the Atlantic Seaboard side of Cape Town I have spent a lot of time at The Radisson. My family did many Sunday brunches, I have enjoyed plenty of sun-downers on their deck and I can tell you their chilli poppers are great! And I can remember sitting on…

An Adventure Getaway to the Cederberg

Just after Easter I managed to wangle a little leave from work and we headed up to the Cederberg for a hideaway from reality. The Cederberg is a big deal for Cape Townians – its one of those go to holidays. However, this was my very first trip out to the Cederberg! We had the…
