All this week, will be inspiring your travel plans with top B&Bs and guesthouses in exotic destinations around the world.

Yesterday, we had the luxurious Riad Utopia offering a modern take on traditional Moroccan style in Marrakech. Today it’s the turn of the elegant Angler & Antelope Guesthouse in Somerset East on South Africa‘s Eastern Cape, one for the fishermen and women among you…

Offering luxury accommodation at affordable prices, the Angler and Antelope Guesthouse has 6 beautifully decorated en-suite bedrooms, air-conditioned and fully equipped with WiFi, TV and tea/coffee-making facilities. Spacious bathrooms feature underfloor heating while the cosy beds are dressed in percale sheets, goosedown duvets and mohair blankets.

The Angler & Antelope is also home to a sophisticated culinary centre set in an old church, where guests can sample a fine selection of malt whiskeys. The confessional has been converted to a fully stocked fly shop while the presbytery now goes by the name of the Fisherman’s cottage, a self-catering unit with a lush garden and a braai.

Somerset East is a small town steeped in history and surrounded by beautiful scenery, which makes a great base for exploring the Eastern Cape. Situated between Addo Elephant National Park and the fascinating Graaff-Reinet, it offers numerous opportunities to get back to nature including, of course, plenty of fishing.

South Africa welcomes huge numbers of visitors every year, thanks to a varied landscape that takes in towering mountains, beautiful coastline and untamed wilderness, as well as its rich history and culture. Why not make it your top destination for 2011?
