This was our second stay at Hawksmoor and we were again blown away by the beauty of the authentic Cape Dutch farm house and rolling gardens. We enjoy our tea on arrival under the old oak tree. It was close enough to go dining in Ernie Els' restaurant in Stellenbosch( the Big Easy). Great sleep and then we had to... More

Hawksmoor House, a jewel of an old Cape Dutch Farmhouse, lies nestled in the countryside, just under an hour from CapeTown on the N1. If you're lucky, you wlll see snow capped mountains on a bright, warm, sunny winters day, as I did.

We stayed here three years ago and loved the place, so back we went. When we arrived there was a friendly face who welcomed us back and took us to our old room that looked like we left it yesterday. Happy, you bet, what is better than going back to your favorite little inn and finding out that nothing has... More

Staying at the Hawksmoor House is like being on a Hollywood set! Beauty abounds with the fabulous antiques that decorate the mainhouse as well as the guestrooms. Great ambiance and wonderful service.

Wow, a Hollywood film set - we're definitely blushing. Thanks for the lovely comments on our decor, and Kirsten will really appreciate the feedback on her (admittedly admirable) cooking and hosting skills! Hawksmoor is definitely a place where you take your time with breakfast so that you can sample everything! The brutal South African winters are no joke; we thought... More

What a beautiful establishment! The house has been immaculately maintained and makes one feel like time has stood still. Hawksmoor is a perfect venue for just chilling or close enough to explore surrounding areas like Stellenbosch, Paarl or Cape Town. We chose the chill option, loved the evening port next to the roaring fire, tea in the afternoon and the... More

My husband and I recently had the pleasure of spending a wintery night at Hawksmoor and from the time we arrived it was evident that this is a very special place. We were greeted warmly and offered tea and delicious Orange cake at the large dining table. The Manor house is beautifully restored and filled with antiques, but doesn't feel... More

On Sunday we ventured to Hawksmoor House to sample their recently advertised soup and cheese lunch. The venue is lovely (made even more special by the stunning winter weather on the day). On arrival we enjoyed a lovely port followed by casual banter and a stroll around the grounds. The manor house main table was beautifully decorated and the cheese... More
