Farm attractions include cellar tours and tastings (booked in advance - and not during harvest!); hiking; biking trails (own bikes); farm dams to swim & fish (catch & release); and play areas with zip-line, swings. There are animals everywhere and vegetable and herb gardens and fruit trees which you are welcome to harvest from sustainably during your stay.
The Winemaker’s Cottage
The Winemaker’s Cottage is set between old cinsault vineyards, a veggie garden, and a large farm reservoir. The shaded stoep with spectacular views is great for outside dining and relaxing. In winter, curl up on the sofa with a bottle of Family wine in front of the large indoor fireplace. In summer, cool off in your own private farm dam and enjoy the incredible sunsets.

Upon arrival you may be greeted by ducks, geese chickens or all of the above, they are part of your experience everyday, The herb garden is packed with everything you need, you will be supplied with fresh eggs and milk and you may even find rusks readily available on the shelf.
The actual living space is amazing, everything is so vintage! We loved it, even took home ideas for a renovation! This place is quite magical and inspirational. Fire wood is abundantly available for Braai's/BBQs or just to fire up the fire place.
Whether you visiting in summer or winter, you will have you own private pool or hot tub, or do what we did, go in Autumn so that we could have the best of both!
Please do try their farm made ice-cream! Hints of granadilla have me wishing i brought some home! Pizza night is an experience!
Just go, don't over think it, you need the break...
Great cosy stay
Our converted Stables cottage is secluded behind the cellar. Two shaded outside areas and a private garden makes it great for dining and relaxing.
Enjoy showering in our unique farm style bathrooms and on a full moon, enjoy the moon rise over the mountains from your splash pool!

Blissful family escape
My favourite Wine Estate in South Africa.
Die Melkkamer (Afrikaans for Milk room) was the farm’s original dairy. A one bedroom cottage with a cosy lounge and small kitchen, situated close to The Old House.

The Silo Kalmoesfontein
Vineyard stay in the silo
We stayed for two nights and didn't actually leave the property the whole time! We did a wine tour and tasting followed by lunch, got a braai pack for the evening, did the 5km hike through the vineyards (after which the plunge pool was very welcome!), wandered round and saw the most enormous pigs, patted the dogs and shooed away the chickens. The pizza was amazing too! And of course you can't go wrong with any of the Badenhorst wines.
Semma, Charl & the team were so friendly and welcoming too. All in all, a fantastic stay and can't wait to return!
Gem of the Swartland
The Koringhuis is the oldest and most peaceful dwelling on the farm. This lovingly restored building, dating back to the late 1700’s, is the perfect combination of rustic luxury still retaining its thick stone walls and a few patches showing off generations of paint jobs. The front stoep, with spectacular views of the mountain and the dam, is perfect for outside dining and relaxing. There is a shared kitchen and dining area, while each of the three bedrooms has its own private bathroom and little lounge.
