About Paddabult Self Catering Cottages

Situated on the historic Bloemendal farm, established by grant in 1692 by Governor Simon van der Stel and surrounded by lush vineyards with the imposing Boland Mountains in the background, these beautifully designed Self Catering Cottages provide a unique pastoral experience.

Equidistant from Franschhoek, Paarl and Stellenbosch and only 45 minutes from Cape Town International Airport and the V&A Waterfront, yet far enough from the hustle and bustle of the city, Paddabult offers you total relaxation on a working wine and fruit farm.

The main bedroom has a double bed and the second bedroom features two single beds.

Verified reviewexcellent

We were searching specifically for pet-friendly accommodation which is hard to find in Cape Town, and this was perfect. The cottage was nice and cosy for us all including our doggie. Our puppy had the best time of all and this was the first time she was able to run freely off her lead and the 2m grass area was perfect for her to sprint up and down on. The place is secure and fenced off which is great. The management was friendly and helpful and very relaxed and allowed their dogs to play and run around with our dog. The view of the mountains from our porch was amazing with perfect sun sets. The place is also perfectly located go and do short day visits to places which is all you need when you have a dog on the trip. Definitely recommended.
