I miss my mum a lot. She lives in Knysna and I don’t always get to celebrate Mother’s Day with her, but even if I am not with her, I always do my best to find time to send or share something special with her, until we can be together again.
Mother’s Day is that perfect time to celebrate and honour your mother and you, no doubt, want to do something special to thank her for all she does for you – so why not do something totally different and give her a surprise Mother’s Day getaway?
One that she’s sure to love… a stay at the charming, tranquil Foxwood House situated in the heart of Houghton – Jozi’s hidden gem – turn Mother’s Day into a whole weekend and take advantage of Foxwood’s Mother’s Day Weekend special – a whopping 50% discount on luxurious accommodation!
Spoil your mom with a beautiful Mother’s Day lunch experience (and dinner if you’re staying the whole weekend) and show her how much you care!
Saturday Dinner and Sunday (Mother’s Day) Lunch – R 220 per person (pensioners 15% discount on menu and children under 12 half price, and under 5 free) for the three-course menu.
The mouthwatering dishes include a starter of rich bean broth with home-made bread, the main course has a choice of beef sirloin with a red wine sauce or grilled salmon, a baked tangy cheese and nut brinjal, tomato and onion quiche with baked vegetables for vegetarians, and the Foxwood burger may be ordered for younger guests, if they wish and for the delectable dessert, a traditional crème brûlée or vanilla ice cream with rich ‘n creamy chocolate bake.
And also for this weekend, there are two performances at Foxwood’s intimate theatre, on Saturday 12 May at 20:00 and again on Sunday 13 May at 12 noon – of the poignant Afrikaans play Hartklop – a play that speaks to all South Africans, even those who only have a smattering of Afrikaans. It stars Sewende Laan’s Christo Davids and Nadia Valvekens of Binnelanders fame.
Tickets for Hartklop: R 120 / Pensioners: R 90. Booking is essential.
