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.
