A home away from home in Kenton-on-Sea

180026_10150136665925638_3432014_nYour hosts at Milkwood Manor B &B are Chester and Jean Wilmot in their large family home which has evolved from holiday house to their home. It is found within the beautiful and tranquil seaside village of Kenton-on-Sea and it offers its visitors an opportunity to experience the timeless Settler hospitality within the Eastern Cape. Milkwood Manor B&B is nestled on the shore only 130 km from Port Elizabeth and 160 km from East London and makes a wonderful stopover. However, one would find it difficult to leave after only a single night’s stay, with all that it offers in the way of pristine beaches to walk and unique and beautiful surf and rock pools to swim in. Visit too the local restaurants for top rate but relaxed eating experience.

  • "Milkwood Manor is our piece of heaven"
  • "We came as strangers and left as part of your lovely family"
  • "I couldn’t have asked for a better location"
  • "The home exudes peace and tranquility"

Milkwood Manor B&B consists of three en-suite bedrooms each having a sense of being part of the beautiful view of river beach and sea, so close that it engages all five senses where you can even taste the sea air. From your room one can walk a few paces and you are on the beach. Each bedroom has a unique flavour with each bathroom hand crafted by Chester. There is a private breakfast room with fridge and microwave oven for use of the guests. There is now a new Gazebo on the lawn which also includes a central “braaing” spot with a chimney for use by guests.

The house overlooks the mouth of the Bushman’s River as it meets the breakers of the Indian Ocean. The smell of the sea air and the sound of the waves cascade into each room and inspire one to explore its bays, rocks and caves. The richness of shear beauty found in the area leaves one with a sense of carefree wellbeing. The joy of Kenton is that it does not have industry to contend with so there is a relaxed atmosphere here that soaks into one’s soul.
