We offer the full menu – no small print and no unpleasant surprises – all at unbeatable value for money!

Escape to the tranquil Paarl / Wellington area, just 50 minutes from Cape Town, and experience the best of luxury and country hospitality. Situated on a private view-blessed grape farm Bakenhof Winelands Venue offers exclusive accommodation, bridal packages, wedding and function venues and conference facilities.

We follow the philosophy that your day is as important to us as it is to you, and therefore only host one wedding per weekend. Day or night, formal or informal, summer or winter, sunshine or rain – we make it our mission to honour your once in a lifetime commitment and focus on a unique, personalised and unhurried experience.

Our Breakaway Wedding Package kicks off with a pre-wedding night pamper session where you and your bridal party are treated like princesses and spoiled with snacks, drinks and luxurious accommodation in a tranquil environment.

Awake with soothing birdsong and breakfast in bed on the morning of “I-Do”, and make the most of your day by enjoying the preparations. Our elegant environment provides the space required – hair, nails, make-up, bath and dress – capture these special moments against our various spectacular backdrops. And while you are preparing we remember to spoil your party – from afternoon snacks to a cup of tea for mom – your wish is our command.

Now warm smiles and country hospitality will welcome your arriving guests – either under the flowering pergola adjacent to the fragrant rose garden or with welcome drinks on the sunset deck with table mountain vistas - the choice is yours. You also get to decide where the red carpet will be positioned for your walk down the aisle - either our charming “chapel with-a-view” or outdoors with Mother Nature as decoration. Then comes your photo-shoot – your photographer will be delighted with the plentiful and varied opportunities – through experience we know you need time, and we make sure your guests are comfortable and entertained with canape’s and drinks. Now the 3-course culinary feast will begin, enjoy quality wines , a cash bar and wedding cake with coffee, topped with late night dancing - without watching the clock and the luxury to know that the romantic Honeymoon Suite is included in your package and only a few steps away.

End your 3 day feast the following morning by choosing either a romantic breakfast in bed or a hearty social with loved ones, giggling and reminiscing about last night. We make it our mission to end your once-in-a-lifetime event on the same high note it started – filled with wonderful memories which you will cherish forever.

Bridal Packages

Bakenhof Bridal Packages feature the luxury to prepare and dress in lavish surroundings, a private setting for stunning pre-wedding photos, serene accommodation for the bridal party on the pre-wedding night and a romantic honeymoon suite to celebrate special new beginnings.

As important as all the pre-wedding arrangements, the night before your special day and the preparations on the day of your wedding need extra attention. Being in a luxurious and serene environment will contribute to your well-being and put you in a positive and right frame of mind to enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime experience. Spoil yourself and spend your pre-wedding night with those people with whom you can kick off your shoes and relax. Awake the morning you say “I do” with birdsong and dress and prepare for the event in-style. Invite your hairdresser and make-up artist to an appropriate space to make you look the perfect picture and choose the luxurious areas, panoramic views and lush gardens of Bakenhof as backdrop to your pre-wedding photos.

Then comes your first night as husband and wife – not all honeymoon suites are made equally – choose Bakenhof because you deserve the best on your wedding night!


Old-world charm and luxury awaits you at our 4 star country guesthouse, in the heart of the Paarl and Wellington Winelands. A tree lined driveway that leads visitors through manicured vineyards, along with the guesthouse gardens, sets the tone for a scenic getaway. Lush gardens, a vine-covered terrace, swimming pool and incredible mountain views provide a sanctuary to be enjoyed at a leisurely pace.

The guesthouse sleeps up to 14 guests in five exquisitely appointed and individually themed suites. Three suites are separate to the main house with their own kitchenette, separate parking and entrance facilities, of which two are suitable for families and one for a romantic honeymoon couple.


Bring a fresh perspective to your business conference or executive breakaway … whether it is for conferences or seminars, team building or product launches – we have made room for your ideas. Our spacious conference room can accommodate up to 120 delegates.
