There is always something exciting happening at Boschendal Farm and May is a truly busy month. Now that our summer is over, and your overseas guests have returned home to their summer, Boschendal Farm is offering some special rates on their accommodation from the uber luxury Rhodes Cottage to the stylishly simple beautifully restored farm cottages. Staying here you can enjoy the very best of farm life. There are farm tours or your own walking tours through the orchards and the local fynbos. You’ll find mountain biking routes, walking paths, caves to explore, wine tasting and cellar tours, trout fishing and swimming in the dams – and plenty of opportunity to sit, read, relax and generally take in the goodness of life.
One of the huge fun things is to have a breakfast basket brought to your cottage. We had such fun and there was enough to keep us going till afternoon tea. Lunch and Dinner baskets are available as well. On the farm itself, there are a few dining options, eating at the Werf Restaurant, Farm Shop & Deli, the Rhone Homestead or picnic area.
All cottages have a full kitchen (kitchenette in the smaller cottages) and are serviced daily.
