The farm is at the end of a long dirt road in a beautiful valley. We stayed in the larger cabin since the smaller cabin was being renovated. The main room had a great ceramic fireplace that heated things up nicely and the bedroom had a standing heater, so we were comfy. They provided us with a few goodies for... More

Fantastic location, really 'getting away from it all'. Diana and Johan couldn't be more welcoming. The farmhouse is beautiful, surrounded by the scents of the fresh herb garden, overlooking the stunning scenery. The food was so tasty and so thoughtfully put together. Stayed in Caracal cottage which was just a short walk from the farmhouse. Comfortable and homely. Came away... More

The location of Fynbos Estate is idyllic. Great views surround the farm, mountains, hills and wide open spaces, dotted with Olive groves, vineyards and fynbos. The amenities are great and trails for walks or biking are a must . Beautiful garden surrounds the main Guest House, which has a wide verandah overlooking the gardens. Fynbos is perfect for a peaceful,... More

The setting, the food and the wonderful hosts, Johan and Diane made this one week meditation retreat the most amazing and inspiring experience at Fynbos Estate...The property is nestled below the "Dragon Ridge" in Joubert's Kloof. An amazing run up the Ridge had me view the beautiful valleys below in the rising sun. When I returned after about an hour... More

Fynbos Estate is partly located within a nature reserve – which means you have amazing views if you'd like to go for a run, hike, or MTB ride. Love food? This farm caters for all tastes (upon request) using fresh, locally-produced ingredients to conjure up amazing meals. Despite this being a working farm, all staff are helpful and friendly to...

I was fortunate enough to spend a week at Fynbos Estate for a meditation retreat at the end of April 2016. The weather was cold and wet on arrival and despite the temptation to book into the main house accommodation, I had a budget I was sticking to and a tent that would offer a grounding experience in simplicity for...

We went to Fynbos as a family for a retreat. It couldn't have been more amazing. The hosts are extremely accommodating and welcoming - even to the extent of catering for one of us being vegan. Beautiful surroundings, free wifi, and the food.... Where do we start. Fresh, innovative, healthy, tasty. We were never hungry or overly full... Beautiful memories... More

Beautiful, well equipped farmhouse with lovely garden & pool area. Dog & child friendly. However, very expensive. Especially when we got home to receive another invoice with all the 'extras'. Bill us once, upfront. It has left our group with such bad tastes in our mouths after such a lovely weekend. All friends & family who have asked after our... More

The farm is surrounded by gorgeous views. This boutique wine farm is a place you don't want to leave. The rooms have all you need, the staff is friendly and helpful and the food quality is very good. The wines are to die for, absolutely delicious.

What an absolute pleasure to be able to get away and not only to stay in a beautiful, comfortable setting, but also to be able to have our beloved dogs with us. We stayed in a comfortable, well-equipped cottage surrounded by beautiful mountains and farmlands. The enclosed garden around our cottage meant that our dogs could play and relax safely... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Fynbos Estate, an hour's drive from Cape Town, is situated in the Paardeberg Mountain close to Malmesbury. Our beautiful old Victorian Farmhouse and two guest cottages are surrounded by lush gardens, vineyards and fields and 270 hectares of mountain fynbos. Part of the estate is a small winery which makes and sells wine under the Dragonridge label, and there is also a magical indoor-outdoor venue space called the Pavilion which seats up to 80. This estate is a paradise for all nature lovers and for those who appreciate good food, fine wine and comfortable accommodation. With easy walks, spectacular views and flora and fauna, Fynbos Mountain Retreat is ideal for retreats, workshops, getaways for family and friends as well as stopovers. We offer self-catered, part-catered and fully catered options and where catered, we serve delicious homemade food using, wherever possible, farm produce. Our Pavilion with its wooden floors and mountain views provides workshop space and an ideal venue for parties, weddings and conferences. We are child friendly and have a swimming pool under the mountain. Fynbos is currently a conservancy and is in the process of becoming a fully fledged Cape nature reserve. ... more   less
