The Oude School Huisje (the Old School House) adjacent to the Manor House, has been converted into a luxurious and spacious 2-bedroom cottage.
2 King size bedrooms, each en-suite with a fireplace and lounge area with music system.
Living areas include a lounge area with music system, kitchen and full bathroom. A patio leads onto its own private garden with a wood/ charcoal braai. There is a round dam that has been converted into a pool with a deck at the Manor House overlooking the vineyard and olive grove, to which Oude School Huisje guests have access.
This is wine country - the youngest wine route in South Africa and just 90 km outside of Cape Town, the Breedekloof Wine Route includes 22 wineries in the Rawsonville, Slanghoek, Goudini and Breede River areas ranging from small boutique cellars to estates.
The area is also great for hiking as well as mountain biking, horse riding and fly fishing.
Ceres is quite close for a leisurely scenic drive. Tulbagh is a bit further but is also worth the drive. There are plenty of interesting shops, beautiful architecture and many restaurants and wine farms. The Slanghoek Valley extends towards the west and the scenery is spectacular.
GOOD TO KNOW
Errol or Ishmael will be on hand to greet you. Eikehof Farm is on the R43 en-route Ceres. Take the Olifantsberg turn-off; the farm is the second farm on your right.
Provided on arrival is coffee, tea, sugar and long-life milk. Two bags of firewood per day are also provided, as are bath towels and swimming towels. Bring your own food, drinks, favourite board games and hiking boots.
There are 130 hectares on the farm to explore. Eikehof extends up the Olifantsberg Mountain and has a beautiful kloof for scenic hiking to see all the endemic fynbos that flourish in the area. A farm dam a short distance away, above the house, offers amazing swimming in crystal clear mountain water.
There are many lovely spots for a tranquil picnic in the farm's fairytale forest through which a small stream runs. The Worcester Mountain Mill Mall is 10 km and has a large selection of shops, including a Woolworths and a Pick n Pay.
A cleaning service is provided daily except for Sundays and public holidays.
Unfortunately, Eikehof does not allow pets due to their tame chickens and goats that roam about the farm.
