Eagles Nest – Sedgefield
15 to 19 March 2010
After collecting the keys at the QVC office in Sedgefield we drove the short distance to the Eagles Nest turnoff from the N2.
As we reached the resort, the manager, Chantelle Gordon was on hand to welcome us and show us to our chalet.
We were immediately impressed with the unit. It was a two bedroom, two bathroom chalet, spic and span as we have become accustomed to with QVC resorts.
The chalet has an open plan kitchen/diningroom/lounge. The television has DSTV which pleased us as we could keep up to date with our soapies. The en suite bathroom to the main bedroom was really nice and the bedroom itself has a roof fan if you want a breeze. There is another fan as well as a heater in the lounge.
The view is absolutely stunning, The resort is situated high on a hill which is probably where the name Eagles Nest originates from. You look over treetops to a lake below and to mountains in the distance. Really nice.
The kitchen is fully equipped for four people. All the wood finishes in the unit are of high quality wood which gives the unit a solid and luxurious feel. Management is hands-on, friendly and efficient making our stay all the more pleasant. The staff is equally friendly and helpful.
The resort is also advertised as an ideal place for a honeymoon. It is quiet and peaceful and even has its own chapel and banquet area. What an ideal place for a wedding!
Eagles Nest is situated just off the N2 within easy travelling distance to Sedgefield, Knysna, George or Mossel Bay. The ideal would be to enjoy a leisurely drive in the morning exploring the area and then return to the resort for a restful afternoon.
There is a well equipped games and TV room and even a heated indoor pool, how’s that for a dip all year round?
We drove the 10 kilometers in to Sedgefield to stock up on bread and and window shopped at the quaint shops lining the main street. One business had veteran cars for sale, some dating way back to the 1930’s, all in roadworthy condition and all for sale.
If you are into hang gliding, we spotted a whole group of hangliders gliding from the cliffs just behind the town.
So after a day or so you are all rested out and feel a bit adventurous? Have no fear, there is lots to do on the Garden Route .Each town has its own tourist information centre where you can get up to date information on the various activities available to tourists. Believe me, you will have to come back again and again to enjoy even a few of the interesting activities.
One morning we took a leisurely drive over the Outeniqua pass past George and Oudtshoorn to Meiringspoort. The route through the Swartberg range is one of the most scenic drives in the country, a photographers paradise!
Another worthwhile outing is the drive to Knysna where you can enjoy lunch at the restaurant right by the famous Knysna Heads!. And so I can go on and on about things to do, but come to Eagles Nest and experience the Garden Route for yourself.
