Enjoy the best of what winter in the winelands has to offer at Boschendal
The quintessential winelands experience, Boschendal offers the 360-degree experience – from beautiful farm-fresh cuisine, to fine wine, heritage, scenery, and a whole host of outdoor activities.
While its food and wine is probably its best-known offering, its accommodation adds another dimension of charm to the package. A variety of cottages – ranging from family friendly to couple-oriented – allows you to relax and enjoy all the property has to offer at your leisure.
The historical and restored cottages are charm personified – situated in such a way as to show off the best of the location. Whether close to the main buildings (like the Werf Cottages which are a short walk away), to the Orchard Cottages further afield (a 2km drive or cycle from the main werf) each offers something different – catering to a variety of guests. But whether you’re looking for seclusion or convenience, all encapsulate the historical depth and superlative lifestyle experience of the estate.
To get the best of what the farm has to offer, build in a wine tasting, as well as meals at the The Deli and Werf Restaurant during your stay, as well as sourcing local produce from the deli store to prepare using the cottage’s self-catering setup. An relaxed and cosy spot, The Deli’s food is as impressive as the space is unpretentious. With its warm service and excellent dishes, it’s an ideal way to start your day on the farm. Next, explore the property and gardens – take a ride (on horseback or bike) or run (the farm has scenic trails), or traverse the vineyards. And if slow is more your speed, the farm also has a spa and cellar to peruse.
As the day winds down, book a wine tasting and get to know the estate’s historical bottles (the snack menu is also excellent for starters), before heading into the Werf Restaurant for dinner. Food is prepared with the best sustainably farmed and produced ingredients – 90% of it from the farm – and showcases farm to fork dining at its most authentic.
