This was one of the best places of living during my 3 weeks in Botswana and South Africa. Maison which was built 300 years still gives you a feeling of that era. Combined modern conditions of living and old fashioned but stylish interior it gives you a feeling that you'll never forget. If you are a couple it is THE... More

The location is lovely, the staff was very courteous and arranged for a special gift for us honeymooners, made us feel great. The view at breakfast is breathtaking. That said it looked as if it required a bit more maintenance(the gardens werent in the best shape) and there was a lack of some basic stuff(like adequate light in the bathrooms).... More

My husband and I stayed at Hawksmoor for four night and were a little disappointed. The house is beautiful and most of the staff were lovely but felt that the house needed a little bit of TLC with maintenance. The standard in this area is very high and they need to keep up. The one thing that they need to... More

This was our second trip back to the Hawksmoor. Once again we stayed away from the main house in the two bedroom cabin with kitchen. Our three year old and 1.5 year old loved this place. Everything from the gardens, to the fish, to the dogs to the backyard from the main house was just perfect for them. The staff... More

I and a friend spent two nights at this beautiful farm and the experience was lovely. Our room was very comfortable in the main house and the place offered us a beautiful breakfast and the service was personalized and lovely. The area around this is stunning and lush. It is also very well placed and in easy access to all... More

We agree, in the heat of an African summer there is nothing better than to cool off in a saltwater pool, especially after visiting the amazing wineries in the area. Thank you for sharing that image with us. We are so glad you really felt and enjoyed what Hawksmoor is all about- comfort and relaxation. We look forward to welcoming... More

We only spent 1 night at Hawksmoor, it is a beautiful old Cape Homestead with lots of history attached to it. The Manor House itself is beautiful just a pity they cannot keep it warm. Stellensbosh had a very wet cold weekend when we were there and we were expecting big roaring log fires. No such luck and when we... More

Hawksmoor is a great place to unwind and explore the winelands. This authentic cape dutch farm house is rich in history and packed with antiques. The bedrooms are luxurious and fitted with contempory bathrooms. Allan and the dogs gave us a warm welcome and he was very attentive to our needs.

One of my favourite scenes by novelist Kurt Vonnegut is where he describes the late night bonding between an insomniac war veteran and his faithful dog, where he writes “I let him know that I like him and he lets me know that he likes me.” This simple sentiment is what I wish to express about everything at Hawksmoor House,...
