About Rico Suter Country House

If you are looking for something special, this is the place! Set in breathtaking surroundings on a large wine and fruit farm at the base of the Waaihoek mountain range half way between Worcester and Ceres, off the R43, is the Rico Suter Estate Wine Farm and Country House.

We are a family run operation where Rico Suter, together with his sons Carlo (oenologist) and Bruno (viticulturist), makes very special handmade wines from grapes grown on the farm. Bruno’s wife, Erika, runs the upmarket B&B / SC guest suite.


This constitutes the entire top floor of the Mill House and has its own private entrance (Bruno and Erika occupy the ground floor together with their two sons). With high open-truss ceilings, contemporary design mixed with antiques and upmarket furnishings and fittings, the apartment consists of one en-suite bedroom with either an extra length King- or two extra length single mattresses.

The bathroom has a romantic free standing tub large enough for two, as well as a shower. There is also a fully equipped open-plan kitchenette with a dining table, and a large living area with a cosy fireplace, leather couch and – ottomans. Stunning Nguni skins are scattered throughout. The entire length of the floor opens onto a private balcony which overlooks Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards and faces the rugged foothills and cliffs of the Waaihoek mountain range.

You can enjoy this spectacular view from every room, even your bathroom. Sleeping arrangements for up to three extra individuals can be organised in the spacious living area. Tea, coffee, milk, sugar and homemade rusks are provided. Smoking is only permitted outside.


A basket filled with fresh breads as well as something sweet, a beautiful seasonal fruit salad , yoghurt, Swiss muesli, juice, filter coffee, farm-made preserves and all the ingredients to make a hot English-style farmer’s breakfast are brought to your apartment at your appointed time. The cooked part of your breakfast is left for you to prepare in your well-equipped kitchen. You can then enjoy the meal at your leisure and in privacy. In the case of working, mid-week stays, it is possible that the hot breakfast is prepared for you.


Being the only accommodation facility available on the farm, this is the ultimate getaway. Have the run of this large and beautiful farm to yourself, far from other tourists. Walk among the many vineyards, fruit orchards, and grasslands or climb the foothills and slopes among the fynbos; mountain bike or swim in some of the six mountain stream dams with nothing but 360° mountain views; taste award-winning wines with Rico Suter himself (by appointment), or get involved with one of the seasonal farm activities.

This place is the perfect spot for honeymooners and those celebrating anniversaries. Erika offers a wonderful service to newly weds that is free of charge provided they book for two or more nights. Rico Suter Country House is, however, also a treat for children. The beautiful garden is fenced in, and boasts a large climbing frame, sandpit and swing as well as a ground level trampoline in the shade of ancient oaks. Braai facilities are available in the garden as well as on the balcony. Wood is provided. Daypacks and utensils for picnicking are provided in your apartment.


Special packages including candlelight dinners served in your apartment or on your balcony are available on request. Laundry facilities are also available. The farm is within easy access to various wine cellars and restaurants in the area, as well as the surrounding towns of Tulbagh, Ceres, Worcester and the historic Bainskloof Pass. There are 18 hole golf courses both in Worcester and Ceres, only 30km away. Big 5 and other game viewing as well as gliding are also offered in and around Worcester. Zip sliding can be done in Ceres and horse riding opportunities for all levels of experience abound in the area. Erika will assist you with recommendations and bookings.

Verified reviewexcellent

My partner and I stayed at Rico Suter Country House for a weekend and all I have to say is WOW. From the amazingly decorated and perfectly appointed accommodation to the views of snow capped mountains (not to mention the excellent breakfast and warm hosts), everything was perfect. Erika even baked a birthday cake for my partner! I cannot recommend staying here more - it was magical!
