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.
