To the Manor born…
Take a single track farm road down towards the gently flowing stream, cross the bridge and head up to the very top of the hill through a plum orchard awash with a delightful profusion of pure white spring blossoms. This is Stellenbosch Manor Farm, ‘our heaven on earth, our little piece of paradise’ say the owners.
The views alone are enough to take your breath away – from the contemporary manor house over the vines and sweeping across Devon Valley towards the ragged peaks rising behind the Stellenbosch Winelands. Hidden discreetly below and set along the banks of the beautiful stream is the prettiest chapel, wedding venue and restaurant. And there’s more: modern farm accommodation, a stylish pool house and relaxation deck extend up the valley. Across the road, pastures for Boran beef, the best in the world, and the cornerstone of the family business at Stellenbosch Manor Farm.
Nothing is small-scale here, yet the Manor House is a much-loved family home filled with collectables, art and sculpture. The welcoming farmhouse kitchen is a chef’s dream, and the 12-seater dining table in the central living area is surrounded by unusually large fossil reliefs of a giraffe, ostrich, prehistoric bird and frog by artist Toby Megaw, cleverly offsetting the 5m-high ceilings. A grand hearth roars in winter, and in summer glass doors on both sides open to magnificent entertaining areas and the pool garden …. an utterly private oasis just ten minutes’ drive from the historic yet hip-and-happening university town of Stellenbosch, bustling with street cafes, boutiques and beautiful people.
