This Cape vernacular cottage is adjacent to the main farm homestead, under old Oak trees, with views of a horse paddock and stables, and rows and rows of pear and apple trees along the entrance farm road. This is a working farm, so during the week there is a bustle of activity while tractors drone around and about.


Bedroom 1: | Double Bed

Bedroom 2: | Double Bed


Inside the cottage, the space has a nostalgic atmosphere with low reed ceilings, scrubbed furniture, old-fashioned stripe, floral and check fabrics, and old Persian rugs scattered about. Bookshelves are filled with old books and there is always plenty of firewood in a huge cane basket, provided for the little closed-stove in the sitting area.

The living area is open plan and double doors on both sides of the dining area open to beautiful views. Guests have their own private, pretty garden to enjoy, have a barbecue in or simply relax on a chaise longe. There is one charming "vintage-feel" bathroom with an extra-large shower and a bath. 


Vredenhof is close to the N2 highway, in the heart of the Elgin Valley, known for apple-growing, and exceptional wines.


Please note that the drinking water on the farm is straight from the mountain, so it has brownish colour. Don't be surprised when your bath water is brown.

This space is not suitable for children under 8 years old. 

Pets are not welcome.

DSTV with premium coverage and Netflix is provided as well as a bluetooth speaker.

A large garden umbrella, 2 chaise longs & garden chairs, a weber-braai/barbecue, beach towels for swimming in the dam, and wellington boots for walking in the wet winters are provided.
