About
Description
Only an hour's drive from Cape Town, this historic 1811 Cape Dutch homestead and cottage, set in a rambling country garden, is the perfect farm stay and country getaway. Wi-fi available on the property. More Rosebeds, lawns and fruit trees cascade to the river and, silhouetted by a rugged mountain backdrop, provide a dramatic setting for a collection of contemporary art. Less
