Situated a short 15-minute drive from Franschhoek village, between Stellenbosch and Paarl, is the Boschendal Farm, a working agricultural farm offering a plethora of activities, award winning wine and gourmet food. With a grand mountain backdrop, you can expect dappled oak tree avenues, 17th century Cape Dutch architecture, rustic-chic interiors and even ducks waddling up and down the estate.
The luxury guest accommodation includes option of staying in the historical Herbert Baker designed, Cottage 1685 (sleeps 10) or the beautifully restored 1, 2, 3 and 4-bedroom Orchard Cottages, all dotted around the property. Guests can also choose to stay in the Werf Garden Suites, close to the deli shop, restaurant and wine tasting; or in a more remote location amongst the hillside fynbos. All the cottages have a full kitchen (or kitchenette in the smaller cottages) where you may wish to prepare meals using fresh farm produce bought at the estate's Deli. Alternatively, you can have breakfast, lunch or dinner baskets brought to your cottage or eat at the Werf Restaurant, Farmshop & Deli, or picnic area.
