In the heart of the Cape Winelands, dramatically surrounded by impressive mountains and verdant stretches of vineyard, lies the historic farm of Boschendal. This is a great base from which to explore, being cetrally located for Franshhoek, Stellenbosch and Paarl. The individual units make it perfect for families and those wanting cottage accommodation rather than a larger farmhouse or hotel style of property.
7 restored Werf Cottages are located close to the manor house and have a typical Cape feel, contemporary décor, fireplaces and kitchenettes. 13 one to four-bedroom Orchards Cottages enjoy stylishly simple décor and are further afield from the main lodge (own car necessary). The estate’s 5-bedroom Rhodes Cottage is a building of historical and architectural interest, and the 2-bedroom Clarence Cottage boasts its own private garden.
Organic vegetable gardens, fruit orchards and free-range cattle provide the farm-to-table produce used to create the cuisine masterpieces served in the elegant restaurant, or used in signature picnics. Savour the estate’s fine wines, walk or cycle through mountain fynbos paths and fly-fish or swim in dams.
