About Grand Dédale Country House
Situated in a long valley just below the Bainskloof Pass, the Estate not only offers a wide variety of outdoor activities but is also an ideal base from which to explore the Cape.
We believe that luxury comes with space and have therefore created a large veranda, two dining areas, a library and tea lounge, two conservatories, extensive landscaped gardens and a 15 meter pool, ensuring a high level of privacy and comfort.
The 6 rooms in the Manor House are very spacious and all offer king size or twin beds, air-conditioning, tea & coffee tray, electronic safe, I-pod docking station with radio, wireless internet connection, remote telephone, flatscreen satellite TV, hairdryer, under floor heating in the bathroom, heated towel rail, a free standing bathtub with separate shower or shower overhead, highest quality 720 g towels, luxurious velour bathrobes, 300 thread count percale cotton linen, imported, allergy free down duvets and pillows, fine fibre pillows, as well as luxurious amenities.
The three rooms on the ground floor offer a private patio and dining area. The romantic rooms upstairs are beautifully appointed under thatched roof.
The freestanding thatched stone cottage (115 sqm) dating back to 1707 has been lovingly restored and is ideal for honeymoon couples or guests seeking additional privacy. There are two bathrooms downstairs, one with shower and one with a jet bath. The wooden staircase leads to the bedroom upstairs with a king size bed overlooking the paddocks and the Manor House. As it stands a short distance from the main house, the cottage offers a private minibar and satellite TV in the open plan lounge downstairs. A private patio overlooking the horse paddocks & forests completes the experience.

Join us for a sundown aperitif or wine tasting, which is followed by an imaginative three-course table d’hôte menu, prepared by our resident chef. Emphasising game and seafood, all ingredients are locally sourced and prepared in a Cape idiom.
A treatment room by the pool area is available for a wide range of stress relieving and invigorating spa treatments performed by professional mobile therapists.
