Boschendal Farm’s charming accommodation has become hot-property for overseas guests and savvy local tourists. Self-catering options are scattered across the estate, from the family-friendly Orchard Cottages to the elegantly refurbished Werf Cottages, a short walk from this historic homestead.

At the Werf Restaurant, situated in what was once the estate’s original wine cellar, the accomplished cuisine is matched by a sense of quiet confidence neatly reflected in the style and standard of service. While diners seated indoors or on the spacious terrace may admire the wrought-iron light fittings and Delft-inspired portraits, the star of the show is surely the panoramic views of the Werf food garden that provides a visual link from farm to plate.

Authenticity is a word that applies to all corners of this rejuvenated estate. In the Farm shop & Deli visitors will find an array of home-made produce from Boschendal and selected local producers, while the restored Boschendal Manor House will soon accommodate a new tasting room experience that combines heritage, wine and farm cuisine. Here visitors can look forward to bespoke tastings offered alongside selected pairing dishes from Campbell’s kitchen: think Angus beef with a comparative flight of Boschendal Shiraz, or canapés from the Werf Restaurant kitchen matched with the estate’s unique Méthode Cape Classique sparkling wines.

Whether you visit for the day, or stay the weekend, it’s the perfect location for discovering farm life; walk in the vineyards, speed along the mountain biking trails, fish in the dams, read, relax and savour the goodness of life.

Boschendal is situated on Pniel Road in Groot Drakenstein outside Franschhoek
