Having returned after many years, nothing as regards the hospitality shown by our host, Julian, has changed. A gentleman farmer with unending generosity. The farm and all that goes with the stay is like taking a journey back to a more gentile and luxurious age. Time slows and one is forced to forget the rush of life and settle into... More

Kersefontein might not be for everyone but it was certainly perfect for us. Julian is a most amusing host and the relaxed atmosphere of the property belies the attention to detail behind the scenes. The rooms are pretty and clean, mosquito nets and beds turned down at bedtime, excellent food in the beautiful old Cape Dutch Farmhouse and a lovely... More

I'm not sure why there have been so few trip advisor comments on this place. It was our second visit and we were again not disappointed. The place is very shabby sheik, no wifi no tv and you wander around amongst pigs, sheep, ducks and chickens. This historical farm has been in the same family for over 250 years and... More

I've been now a couple of times to Kersefontein and it's always like coming home! Julian, the owner is a real character who gives you from the first moment you meet him a warm welcome to his very special home ! He can tell great storys and like to play the Bösendorfer piano after dinner like someone who earns his... More

If you are looking for a relaxed week end in the country and you want to be taken back in time, this is really the place to be! Comfortable, great food and a great host...who took me horse riding for the first time in my life. Thank you for a special week end!

Its been 15 years since I visited Juilan and Kersefontein. Never again will it be so long - This is what Cape hospitality is all about. We were staying in the Gate Cottage - which is away from the main farm buildings, but even they are a treat. This farm is heavy on character, don't go expecting just another break... More

We have been visiting kersefontein with our family for the last 16 years now. Even though we travel frequently to all corners of the world, this is the one place we've been drawn back to again and again. The attraction lies mainly in the combination of the peaceful surroundings of this magnificent farm on the unspoiled West Coast, north of... More

This must be the most tranquil, peaceful and romatic trip back in time, I have made.ideal for photography and totally natural.Swimming in the river was lovely. Yes, here and there the paint comes off on the outside buildings, but the interior of the rooms is always immaculate, spacious and designed tastefully. There is NO garbage lying around, like on some... More

Had a fabulous stay at Kersefontein, and was lucky enough to go riding gratis with Julian the owner. Rooms were really lovely and the farm bar is great for a picnic and the aviator bar fun at night. Dinner was overly priced and mediocre, but a fun night in the end.

We had (again) a wonderful weekend away on Kersefontein! Less than 2 hours drive from Cape Town, one enters a beautiful, tranquil and authentic getaway. Quite magical in all respects! Don't come expecting 5-star luxury treatment ( - it is after all still a working farm!), but come to flush out the urban cobwebs in the peace and quite of... More
