Situated behind and adjacent to the historic werf of Boschendal with ravishing views of the surrounding countryside and mountains,  these subtly restored and furnished farm cottages create a virtual village in the Cape-picturesque manner in an idyllic setting.

This is the unspoilt Cape as Arthur Elliott photographed it. Only an hour’s drive from Cape Town, they are ideal for historic or wineland getaways and romantic weekends. Each cottage has its own fireplace and small kitchen, while the Boschendal restaurant and Deli are within walking distance. The manor house, garden, farm, estate and mountains are all there for you to enjoy.  Inclusive of breakfast.

Eat & Drink

The Cape Dutch farms were historically renowned for their warm welcome and generous hospitality. What crowned this welcome was the Cape table, laden with wholesome dishes made from ingredients from the farm’s werf and fields.

Must Do's at Boschendal

Guests are invited to enjoy all this magnificent farm has to offer: an award winning wine and bio-friendly food experience; a rich heritage; a spectacular natural and soulful landscape; fun, informative and engaging activities whilst also taking the opportunity for some down time in tranquil surroundings.


Guest accommodation is a recent addition to the farm with luxury accommodation ranging from the historical Herbert Baker designed Rhodes Cottage to beautifully restored farm labourer cottages. With emphasis on stylish simplicity the guest cottages are authentic, rural yet contemporary in character.
