Boschendal Estate

Agriculture and a simple farm lifestyle is at the heart of Boschendal, located in the Franschhoek valley. One of the oldest farms in South Africa, founded 1685, the farm has grown with the passing centuries into a cherished source of wholesome produce, great wines and happy memories. Guests are invited to enjoy all this magnificent farm has to offer: an award winning wine and bio-friendly food experience; a rich heritage; a spectacular natural and soulful landscape.

On Boschendal today little has changed, with their restaurants offering an array of authentic culinary experiences. First and foremost the focus is on providing flavourful and nourishing farm-to-table food; celebrating the bountiful produce of Boschendal and the Franschhoek valley with menus that shift with the seasons. Much of the fresh produce you’ll find on your plate is sustainably grown right here on Boschendal Farm, and where possible they source other ingredients from farms and small producers in the surrounding winelands.

Guest accommodation is a recent addition to the farm, with luxury accommodation options ranging from the historical Herbert Baker designed Rhodes Cottage, to beautifully restored farm cottages. With an emphasis on stylish simplicity, the guest cottages are authentic and rural yet contemporary in character.
