The historic Manor House on Doolhof Wine Estate, dating back to the early 1700s, lies at the end of a valley just outside the picturesque town of Wellington. Surrounded by vineyards, forest, mountains and a river, the Estate offers a variety of outdoor activities and is perfectly positioned for exploring the Cape with Cape Town only 50 minutes drive away.
This exclusive and elegantly restored Cape Dutch Manor houses 6 spacious individually designed en-suite bedrooms.
The three ground floor rooms offer a private patio and dining area while the romantic upstairs rooms are beautifully appointed under the thatched roof.
The cottage stands a short distance from the main house with the downstairs area offering an open plan lounge and two bathrooms, one with shower and one with a jet bath. The wooden staircase leads to the bedroom upstairs. A large, private patio overlooking the horse paddocks & forests completes the experience.
Grand Dédale offers a large veranda, two dining areas, a library and tea lounge, a TV lounge, two conservatories, extensive landscaped gardens and a 15 meter pool, ensuring a high level of privacy and comfort.
For the active traveller, the 380 hectares of mountains, vineyards and fynbos are ideal for walking, hiking and mountain biking. There are two well marked walks leading past the river and the vineyards, allowing guests to enjoy the scenic views over the mountains and the Estate. Many more activities, such as horse riding, playing golf, trout fishing, clay pigeon shooting, quad biking and hot air-ballooning are available close by.
Doolhof's wine tasting experience allows guests to enjoy a range of their award-winning wines and upon request a private tour through the wine cellar can be arranged.
