Way back in 1980, Craig and Jill Hunter bought a small farm called Pear Tree Farm just outside the beautiful resort town of Plettenberg Bay.
Alterations and additions to the old farm house, including two garden cottages, were soon underway to accommodate their family of five children. Craig, a civil engineer transferred his contracting business from Bedfordview to Plettenberg Bay, and Jill established her antique shop on the premises. They enjoyed a large degree of self sufficiency in their new country life style, due to a productive farming venture.
The children left for study and university and the Hunters were persuaded to use the cottages as part of a “Farm Bed and Breakfast Association”.
Soon afterwards, the possibility of a Country House Hotel came to mind. The project was soon underway, including a new home on the recently acquired next door farm.
