Abbey Manor Luxury Guesthouse in Cape Town, South Africa is situated on the footsteps of Table Mountain and about a 15 minute drive from the popular landmarks V&A Waterfront, Camps Bay Beach and Clifton. The house was designed by the architect William Black, who was responsible for a wide range of famous buildings in Cape Town. The house was named “Abbey Manor” after the Manor house at Bisham, known as Abbey Manor although actually a priory and not in fact an abbey. This Manor house was a memory from his youth, and was the model David McConnell wished to follow in building in Cape Town.
