A quick escape from home will no longer have to be done by bribing it with new continental pillows, sneaking out under the pretence of seeing a man about a dog or trying to convince it that’s it’s not it, its you . Ease your house into the idea of some separation with a weekend for two people including chocolates, wine and a fly fishing experience at St. Ives Country Estate for R1400.
The prestigious, stylish St. Ives Country Manor, in all its splendour is the perfect getaway to forget about the stress of work or the tension you’ve built up in your shoulders after spending countless nights perfecting the art of origami swans. Situated in Lions River, in the beautiful Kwa-Zulu Natal Midlands, this manor is also in close proximity to the famous Howick falls and many other great sights.
Your weekend away for two includes indulging in delicious chocolates, divine wine and a fun fly fishing experience. With beautiful meandering greens, tranquil water features and the beauty of old-world style, this country manor will provide you with a relaxing escape from the hustle and bustle of fast-paced city life.
Fly fishing is fast becoming a popular sport all over the world and is very relaxing. Enjoy wading in the dam and waiting for a bite while philosophising over profound things like the meaning of life and the reason you always end up burning your microwave popcorn. After a long day of catching trout like a trout-catching-ninja, relax in front of a crackling fire, take a dip in the private pool or stretch out on an actual king sized beds in the comfort of your luxurious room decorated in warm, rustic tones.
Fly-fishing Fact: The world’s most famous fly-fishing show aired on cable television in America in 1999 and was called “Pretty fly for a fishing guy”. The show followed the everyday life of a teenager who loved fly fishing but was made fun of by his friends, showing him fighting stereotypes and standing up for what he believes. The show ran for one season, but gained cult following amongst grandfathers.
