Suppose you are an adventurous entrepreneur seeking to embrace a new hospitality venture in the Cape Winelands, where 28 hectares of vines also produce award-winning wine. In that case, you’ll undoubtedly appreciate Hopehill Manor Boutique Guesthouse. This unique retreat is a going concern that offers a top-level spoil to out-of-town visitors.

As you drive through the front gate, The Manor House stands stoically before you in all its gracious splendor. Drive a little further and you pass exquisitely restored historic buildings in The Dairy Room and The Slave Quarters, before arriving at The Manor House. Then, if you continue just a little more along the circular driveway, you’ll find the majestic Blue Barn venue for bespoke weddings and special celebrations of all kinds. There’s still enchanting Edge House too, just behind The Manor House and beyond the beautiful, walled vegetable garden. For anything else you may desire, Stellenbosch is close by.

All the buildings that together are the boutique hotel and Cape Dutch country retreat are on original footprints and have all been sensitively and exquisitely renovated to reflect their settler heritage. There’s a sense of timelessness here, while each building also lends a completely different perspective to the farm; different views and different personas. Each one of the 16 rooms is individually decorated with flair to exude calm, while also showcasing hand-picked heritage pieces. It feels so personal.

And, about the views. Well, they’re frankly postcard perfect. It’s hard to grasp until you see them. You’re surrounded by rolling gardens, all irrigated from borehole water on the farm. But when you look up, just a little, Table Mountain casts her image in the long reflection pool and stands tall in person in the background. In the middle distance are flourishing, irrigated vineyards, over 20 hectares of them. The farm is really a space with three distinct personalities. Its 200 hectares includes the working farm of vineyards and cereal crops, the majestic and historic boutique guest house, and a fabulously popular wine label – highly rated by Platter’s since 2006. 

Importantly, this farm exudes a sense of place and history, since it dates back to 1692. Most of the neighbours farm too, so life here is lived close to the rhythms of earth albeit sans rough edges. It’s a rare space for guests to meet up, marry or celebrate life, maybe to stay awhile – yet you can call it home every day.
