The main area of the villa is open plan with a kitchen, dining room table and lounge area tastefully presented overlooking a garden and surrounding vineyards. A large open fire brings warmth during those chilly winter months. Upstairs is a large loft area where can guests watch all DSTV channels, use the library or play cards

The Guesthouse and Pumphouse are iPod and mp3 friendly.


Enjoy a meal at the on site restaurant, The Gallery Restaurant at South Hill where chef Damian Dearlove will delight you with his innovative bistro-style menu using locally sourced produce. The restaurant also caters for functions, celebrations, weddings or any other private or corporate event.

Verified reviewexcellent

This place is a hidden gem. It has absolutely everything we look for when neading a break, Jacuzzi, beautiful bathroom, fireplace, outside braai, view of the vineyards from your bed and a lovely secluded deck onto the dam. You can relax here whilst enjoying complete privacy. Tha farm also offers lovely walks through the vinyards and a beautiful restaurant In the art gallery with divine food! Sandy and Kevin really goes out their way to make you feel welcome and has added alot of extra special touches to make the cottage and everything else that bit more special.
