Overview

The historic Manor House on Doolhof Wine Estate, dating back to the early 1700s has recently been restored to its former Cape Dutch elegance, offering 5 star facilities and service. A large veranda, a library and tea lounge, a TV lounge with international channels, two conservatories, extensive landscaped Gardens and a 15 meter pool, ensuring a high level of privacy and comfort.
Situated in a long valley just below the Bainskloof Pass, the Estate not only offers a wide variety of outdoor activities, such as hiking, mountain biking and horse riding, but is also an ideal base from which to explore the Cape.
The six individually designed and appointed bedrooms in the Manor House reflect the Cape Dutch elegance of the building, offering 21st century luxury and comfort. Interiors have been carefully chosen to suit the style, with a subtle use of technology. The rooms are spacious and equipped with the finest linen and amenities giving an instant homely feel.
The free-standing thatched stone cottage dating back to 1707 forms the 7th bedroom. It is ideal for honeymoon couples or guests seeking additional privacy. The wooden staircase, a feature of the cottage, leads to the bedroom upstairs which contains a king-sized bed and overlooks the forest. As it is some distance from the main house, the cottage offers a private minibar and satellite TV. A private patio overlooking the horse paddocks completes the experience.
Start your day with a delicious “Cap Classique” breakfast with a range of homemade treats and a mouth-watering selection of cooked dishes. Light lunches and snacks are served throughout the day; picnic baskets or backpacks are available by prior arrangement. In the afternoons we serve a high tea buffet with homemade delicacies. Join us for a sundown aperitif or wine tasting, which is followed by an imaginative three-course table d’hôte menu, prepared by our resident chef. Emphasising game and seafood, all ingredients are locally sourced and prepared in a Cape idiom.
