We stay in boutique hotels frequently and suffice to say this is as good as a boutique hotel can get. Impressive estate that can be explored in various ways. Every possible detail has been considered and the personal touch makes your stay unforgettable.

Wonderfully nestled farm at the foot of the Bain's Kloof Pass (literally where the dirt road ends). Farm extra beautiful thanks to its horses, river walks, silhouetted mountain sunset and fantastic Cape Dutch architecture house. Fantastic service and generous availability of whisky, sherry, wine etc
