The 'CIARA' in Middleton Experience


 

 

This the only place in the world that recovering addicts are running an establishment with multiple venues as part of their recovery program. They work and run the accommodation, catering, the grounds, the Pubthe Shop, Bottle-store, Post-OfficeFarm-Stall (Padstal), Caravan + Camping facilities, manage the finances (do the books) and take care of all the buying to make Ciara Middleton run smoothly.

 All this while offering services and a variety of venues to the public, fellow residents, their families and also to the staff (also recovered addicts) to benefit from this.

It is situated amongst the rolling hills of the Eastern Cape, surrounded by luscious green meadows, on the banks of the Fish River lies Middleton; a railway siding with its quaint Cape Dutch/African architecture that reminds one of the Victorian era.

The manor and surrounds built in 1879 exude the quaintness of the Anglo/African age of the Eastern Cape with a large amount of Dutch influence seen in the architecture of the buildings.

The manor offers accommodation ranging from a comfortable upstairs room to the self-catering bachelors flat and hunters lodge, there are also rooms spread out around the manor which are catered for.

A large part of the town’s magic is the grounds, set on the banks of the great fish river, the grounds contain well-manicured gardens, rolling lawns, tennis courts, a swimming pool and a conference center seating 100 people. The river offers some superb yellow fish fishing and is a birdwatchers paradise, with bird-life ranging from sun birds to fish eagles.

The fully stocked pub, known as the Tavern, has a large flat screen for all your sports viewing and with friendly and helpful bar staff you can get all you want out of a visit. 

We have great location for sundowners or to just relax – plus the food is great and we even have pizza if you get hungry (or take-away). It’s just a really relaxed place for a chilled evening.Why not pop in for a visit and see for yourself!
