About Doornbosch Guesthouse & Country Cottages

Doornbosch Guesthouse and Country Cottages are part of a 5000ha working farm, with horses, game, fynbos and honey cultivation. We are located in the heart of the rural Overberg, no more than two hours from Cape Town, close to the white beaches of Pearly Beach, and just a few kilometres away from the scenic mission village of Elim.

This rural part of the southernmost area of the Western Cape is a well-kept nature reserve. Life here is relaxed, quiet and unspoiled. This is the place where 'getting away from it all' is really possible.

Our guesthouse offers country-life at its best. The house has three spacious and cosy guestrooms with en-suite bathrooms. For all our guests we have a pool, a large living area with an open kitchen, a comfortable sitting area with open fireplace and a large veranda with stunning views. Warm colours, rich fabrics, handmade tile floors and comfortable furniture make each room unique. The rooms can be booked individually or together for maximum privacy.

The suite has a master bedroom with double bed, en-suite freestanding tub and large shower, open living area.

Fynbos and Lavender Rooms:
These are two separate bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, a large shower and a sitting area. To share living room / lounge area with fireplace, fully equipped kitchenette, bar, terrace, pool. If you choose to rent the whole house for utmost privacy, the maximum is 6 guests at a time.

Cottages Doornbosch:
The three cottages have been built and finished just recently and are now ready for our guests. The cape dutch style cottages are very comfortable and private with breathtaking views.
