Many, many thanks for the great response in our search for land on which to build self-catering cottages for Christian retreats! The farms were beautiful and the Christians we met were lovely people... you all know who you are!
At the end of the day we opted for our own properties alongside the Diep River and in close walking distance to the village of Malmesbury and the nature reserve.
Among other things our new "Riverbank" development will comprise 16 apartments and 10 cottages. All the accommodation will befurnished and fully equipped for self catering. The units will also be serviced daily by Christian staff.
Riverbank will be ideal for cosy getaways for Christian individuals or families but will also be available en bloc for church conferences and retreats - still our core business.
To this end we are almost finished building an additional 200 seater hall on the site (see photo below) and thereafter a communal self-catering kitchen and dining room.
The new Riverbank development will compliment our existing 25 bedroom and conference facility at Almond Bridge. Almond Bridge offers low cost catering and is used for church conferences most weekends of the year.
Some churches would like to save costs and do their own cooking - hence the self catering Riverbank development.
Both Riverbank and Almond Bridge form part of Berachah Retreat and Conference Centre.
