Fynbos Estate is a guest house with self catering option, providing accommodation in Malmesbury for tourists visiting the Swartland region.

About Fynbos Estate

Hidden in a kloof of the Paardeberg Mountain is the magical Fynbos Estate - grape and olive farm, small winery, guest house, celebration and conference venue and nature reserve. Located 15 kms outside Malmesbury and just an hour from Cape Town, Fynbos Estate nestles amongst vineyards, olive trees and indigenous gardens and offers numerous spaces of tranquillity, simplicity and natural beauty.


Fynbos can sleep up to 16 in the Farmhouse, 14 in Honey Badger House, 4 each in Caracal and Owl Cottages, 10 in Black Eagle House. All houses are beautifully situated and comfortably appointed and guests can self cater, part cater or be fully catered for.


Fynbos Estate offers a range of facilities for those staying on the farm. These include a raku fireplace in winter and a swimming pool under the mountain in summer, wine tasting and wine making, a large domestic library, satellite TV.

Exploration of the farm and mountain by foot give visitors a chance to enjoy virtually pristine fynbos vegetation and indigenous birds and animals. Cycling up the mountain road is a hit with the fit and a high clearance vehicle will take visitors up the mountain by road where they will be greeted by spectacular views from the top of Dragonridge and Sonkop.


Food is farm sourced and prepared with creativity and experience in a variety of styles.

Dragonridge Winery

Made under the Dragonridge label, our wines are handcrafted in the old traditional way mostly from Rhone cultivars grown on the farm. Winemaking getaways during February and March involve groups of friends or colleagues in the making of the wine hands on. Wines have done well and are available from the farm ore delivered in the Cape Town vicinity (free of charge) and elsewhere in the country with delivery costs.

All in all, Fynbos Estate is a very special but unpretentious place of great beauty. It offers wonderful food and wine, comfortable accommodation and a relaxed and easy atmosphere. We are also committed to keeping our prices reasonable.
