Boschendal lies in the heart of the winelands in the beautiful Drakenstein Valley. It’s around 60 km from Cape Town and an easy drive from the towns of Franschhoek, Stellenbosch and Paarl, so a perfect base from which to explore the region. The lovely setting and fine wines produced here have drawn visitors for years, but it is only recently that accommodation has become available on the estate with the renovation of a number of farm cottages.
Accommodation & Facilities
Guests can choose from 22 cottages, ranging in size from one to five bedrooms, spread through the grounds. Some are within walking distance of the winery, restaurant, farm shop and deli while others are up to 2 km away and will require a vehicle. With the emphasis on stylish simplicity the guest cottages are authentic and rural, yet contemporary in character. They are all comfortably appointed, with a full kitchen or kitchenette, and some have access to a shared pool. The cottages offer a great choice for couples, families and groups of friends travelling together.
Dining options include eating at the Werf Restaurant, Farm Shop & Deli, the Rhone Homestead or picnic area. Alternatively, breakfast, lunch or dinner baskets can be brought to your cottage. Guests staying at Boschendal have access to the entire estate and can enjoy mountain biking and walking trails, trout fishing and swimming in the dams, wine tasting and cellar tours – or can just sit, read and relax in the beautiful surroundings. Hop in the car and it’s a short drive to other wine estates and the wineland towns for which this region is so famous.
