The historic Manor House on Doolhof Wine Estate has been elegantly restored and houses 6 individually designed and appointed en-suite bedrooms and suites, offering 5 star luxuries and service. The free standing thatched cottage forms the 7th bedroom and is ideal for honeymooners or guests seeking additional privacy. Situated in a long valley below the Bainskloof Pass, the Estate not only offers a wide variety of outdoor activities such as hiking, mountain biking and horse riding, but is also an ideal base from which to explore the Cape. We believe that luxury comes with space and have therefore created a large veranda, two dining areas, a library and tea lounge, two conservatories, extensive landscaped gardens and a 15 meter pool, ensuring a high level of privacy and comfort. Start your day with a delicious “Cap Classique” breakfast with a range of homemade treats. Light lunches and snacks are served throughout the day; picnic baskets or backpacks are available by prior arrangement. In the afternoons we serve a high tea buffet with homemade delicacies. A sundown aperitif on the large veranda is followed by a three-course table d’hôte menu, prepared by our resident chef. Emphasising game and seafood, all ingredients are locally sourced and prepared in a Cape idiom. A spa room is available for a wide range of treatments performed by professional therapists. The full range of Doolhof’s award winning wines is available for tasting in the tasting room; on request, private cellar tours can be arranged.

StreetSmart South Africa raises funds for street children programs through participating restaurants, accommodation establishments and wine tasting centres. StreetSmart South Africa has been in operation since June 2005 under the founding patronage of Emeritus Archbishop Desmond Tutu. The funds raised go to selected and approved organisations that run programs for the normalization of street and vulnerable children’s lives. The restaurants, accommodation establishments and wine tasting centres in each town raise funds for their own community street children programs.
