Peppertree House B&B

Pieter and Laetitia welcome you to Peppertree House, which is located in the historic town of Fort Beaufort and named after a majestic old pepper tree which once served to provide shade for visitors’ horses.

Peppertree House B&B offers comfortable accommodation in tranquil surroundings. They provide excellent service and warm hospitality to make your stay as pleasant and memorable as possible.
