Doornbosch is the perfect place to stay if you are looking for a riding holiday! Heidi is a fantastic guide, and her horses are wonderful. They are horses that every rider would enjoy - from beginner to advanced. I had the best time exploring the farm from horseback, and saw a lot of game and lovely flowers. I stayed in... More

We stayed 6 nights at Doornbosch and we came mainly for riding. We stayed in the Guesthouse and we liked everything. Got up early in the morning before sunrise every day and went out riding with Heidi and also with Jane and Mike, from the neighbor farm. The farm provides sufficient area even for the long time we stayed. Heidi... More

We had an excellent 3-day stay in the Koude Rivier Cottage, which is located near the owner’s house, on the farm opposite of Doornbosch. Although the road to get to the farm is rough and the farm is very secluded, it is well worth the drive if you are looking for quietness and a true South African farm experience. Heidi,... More

Stayed for one night for a 50th Birthday weekend. All my expectations exceeded. Spacious, luxurious, beautiful - just perfect. To Bertie and his wife, you guys made us all feel at home. You have the best homemade organic honey. Thank you very much. We will be back. My only regret.........staying only one night......and purchasing only one jar of honey!!

We stayed for two nights at Doornbosch, in the Overburg region. Our drive from Napier was certainly interesting - tarmac gave way to dirt roads, and we drove through some remote countryside to finally arrive at the imposing gates. We were a bit worried by how remote it actually was, but needn't have worried. It's actually a great location for... More

My wife and I stayed in the farm house on Doornbosch which is enormous. It is well furnished and equipped. It was the start of autumn, a bit wet and chilly but the underfloor heating was on, the fridge was primed with the essentials including their home produced organic honey - delicious, and the logs were ready and dry for...

I spent one night at Doornbosch Guest House en route to Cape Town and had the unique experience of having the whole place to myself! The guest house is a tastefully re-created old Cape Dutch farmstead on the site of the original homestead. The three guest rooms are huge and very elegantly furnished and equipped, each one quite different. The... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Doornbosch Guesthouse and Country Cottages - our Guesthouse with new pool - is in the heart of the rural Overberg, no more than a 2-hour drive from Cape Town, midway on the road from Napier to Gansbaai. Close to the white beaches of Pearly Beach and just a few minutes from the scenic mission village of Elim. Cape Agulhas, the southernmost tip of Africa is only 45 minutes away! The Guesthouse and the cottages are part of a 5000 hectare working farm with protea and honey cultivation, with horseback riding and wild game, organic vegetable gardens and fresh water dams. The three cottages have been built and finished just recently and are now ready for our guests. ... more   less
