Just before you reach Robertson on the R62 from Aston Owl's Rest nestles on the foothills of the Langeberg. A smaller outfit with a variety of lavender and olive products. A beautiful and quiet place well worth visiting.

Lovely little gem of a shop. Nice olive oil, lovely creams and such. And lavender cordial which was unusual but quite nice! I would recommend trying the chutney too. Got a bit of a kick and such a lovely flavour.
