Dunn's Castle in Piketberg

Heading home at the beginning of January from our family holiday, we stopped in at Dunn's Castle in Piketberg, which has sweeping views of the Swartland region. The castle was built in 1902 and originally belonged to George Herbert Dunn. Famous guests such as Cecil John Rhodes, Rudyard Kipling and Herbert Baker were regular visitors. Sir Herbert Baker was a good friend of Dunn and it's believed that he was the castle’s architect. Today it is a guesthouse and conference centre. We didn't see the rooms, but we did go inside for some light refreshments.
