The huge oak trees, that are Beloftebos, were planted about 130 years ago by Squire de Villiers in remembrance of his parents who founded the farm. Squire was a great-great uncle of Andries de Villiers. After Andries took over the running of the farm from his father, Johan, he gradually started clearing the oak forest from alien vegetation. He met his wife, Coia, in 2004 and decided to married shortly after that. The oak forest was the perfect place to exchange their matrimonial vows. Thus, on a cool autumn day in 2005 , they stood under the leafy roof by the oak stump pulpit and the idea of Beloftebos was born.

'The newly renovated old shepherd's cottage 'Melk en Heuning' is situated amongst almost every imaginable fruit tree and huge old oaks randomly planted throughout the years. The last permanent resident, Old George, was the shepherd on the farm for three generations of de Villiers's. He retired last year at the age of 80, and drove the donkey cart when used as a wedding carriage till very recently! The cottage is 1km from Beloftebos, on your way there (thus 14km from Stanford). It sleeps 6 people - one en suite double bedroom, 1 room with two twin single beds and a loft with two single beds. It has two bathrooms, an outside shower, a loo with a view. The spacious stoep will add to a memorable weekend on the farm. Linen and towels are provided.

For rest and renewal come and stay at our cottage on The Hill, Lighuisie. The setting of Lighuisie offers panoramic views and borders on the Salmonsdam Nature Reserve. Accommodation is cosy and comfortable. Appliances are gas powered and lights solar powered. Oil-lamps, however no Eskom, add to the romantic setting. There is hot water in both bathrooms, inside the cottage as well as well as in the double shower outside. Lighuisie has a large hearth as well as a gas oven. Unfortunately for wedding guests, however, no electricity means no hair-drying or last-minute shirt ironing.

Enjoy hiking, bird-watching, and mountain-biking or just relax with a book by the open fireplace. The cottage sleeps 8 people - 1 double bedroom, 1 bedroom with two single beds and a loft with four single beds. One bathroom inside and outside double shower and toilet. Linen and towels as well as extra mattresses are provided on request.

Self-catering (coffee, tea, sugar, farm-fresh milk and rusks provided)

A huge lawn in front of the generous stoep and a green fig tree in the courtyard at the back, a spacious living area with fireplace and open-plan kitchen, all cupboards have been made from the Blackwood trees that grows alongside the river running past Beloftebos. And cotton percale linen.

Groenvy Farmhouse cannot be called a cottage. It is a proper farmhouse that was built close to the main farmhouse only a few years ago. The cottage is a mere 500m from Beloftebos, making it ideal for children who need to be baby-sat. It sleeps 8 people (two more can sleep in the living area if numbers need to be catered for) in 4 bedrooms. The main bedroom has a queen-size bed with a walk in dressing room and bathroom. The second bedroom has a double bed and the other two bedrooms each have two single beds.

This cottage was named Granaat only to discover later that there are in fact a old few pomegranate trees growing not far from it. They served as inspiration to plant a whole lane of both the old and the new variety of trees.

Situated on a hill overlooking some of the surrounding farms and a poplar grove, Granaat Cottage boasts a large stoep in the front and a substantial dam at the back. It has two bedrooms , both with a double bed, one with an en suite bathroom and the other one opening onto the stoep. From the living area and kitchen (which include a fireplace, a proper cast iron Dover wood oven and a cosy corner to soak in the winter sun) stairs go up to the loft with 4 single beds and roof windows to watch the stars. There is a second bathroom and separate toilet inside as well as a warm shower outside. Granaat Cottage is about 2km from the Beloftebos Wedding Venue.
