A fusion of romantic architectural art and the decorative arts for 2
I am passionate about architectural art and design and the philosophies of William Morris and the Arts & Crafts Movement. The Castle Keep B&B represents a fusion of architectural art, amazing and unique accommodation and the decorative and fine arts. Design is my life long passion.
Kenneth purchased this Bed And Breakfast in 1984
Why Kenneth chose Crafers
The prolonged summer heat in the plains saw the wealthy colonists establishing extravagant and summer homes, reflective of their prior English properties. It is an area of immense beauty with many historic villages and character historic homes, vineyards and stunning gardens. The property has constantly won awards and accolades since opening. The Castle Keep continues to evolve.
What makes this Bed And Breakfast unique
Upon arriving you are greeted by winged griffins, high atop stone gate posts, before winding your way down a path to the Castle Keep B&B. The historically inspired architecture creates an incomparable romantic experience for 2. Hand loomed French tapestries with artisan passementeries and extraordinary antiques from the 1820s create a unique ambiance, with a baronial wood burning open fireplace. There is a private patio for alfresco breakfasts in summer. An incomparable, unique authentic and quality experience.

Amazing and wonderful. A place from fairytales that you wouldn't believe exists, but it does!!!
If you wish to feel like a princess in a castle this is the place to stay. The hospitality was above and beyond. The grounds are gorgeous and the rooms are beautifully designed and the attention to details astonished
and delighted us... We are beyond satisfied and honestly we don't want to leave, but as all good things must come to an end, so does our wonderful time on the grounds of Thorngrove Manor.
It was a pleasure to have you stay in the Castle Chambers B&B. So glad you left with special memories.
Lovely trip through time
My partner and I had a fantastic stay away here, beautiful interior and exterior. Everything was extremely aesthetically pleasing. The property manager was very lovely and helped make our experience more enjoyable.
Thank you so much for your thoughtful review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay so much.
A fairytale come true
I surprised my new fiance with a night at Thorngrove Manor and she was absolutely blown away. Incredible doesn't even begin to describe the magic of this place, built by the owner Ken for his wife. Ken put in an incredible amount of effort to create a castle that could have very easily been built hundreds of years ago. His attention to detail, including the array of antiques he has displayed all contribute to Thorngrove Manor being a truly unforgettable experience. We will definitely be back!
You were both delightful guests and we are so pleased it was such a special surprise. We have endeavored to make it an extraordinary place for people to enjoy. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.
We are so happy to be there!
Hi Sidnei Thank you for your review. You were delightful guests and so pleased you enjoyed your stay so much.
Amazing and extraordinary. A hidden gem!
We can only reiterate what has been said before. Extraordinary, amazing with exquisite detail. It was the best birthday surprise ever, a true escape with a sincere welcome. Thank you Ken for sharing the magical world.
My wife organised an annivesary getaway for us both and we were greeting at the gate by Kenneth. Showed us around the gorgeous property and our stay was divine. We both felt like royalty! Kenneths antiques are exquisite and a hidden gem up in the hills. It really felt like we were in another world. Kenneths hospitality was wonderful. A highly recommended experience.
It was delightful to have you stay with us. So pleased you enjoyed your stay so much. Hope to welcome you back again soon.
