We last visited in 2018 which then was late afternoon and it was very hot.
This time after just visiting Nuy winery we popped in again to explore the shop full of luxury scented goodies, to enjoy coffee and cake, chat to the delightful owner and meet her lovely dog Ruby, the pup gained from Tessa(mother), who we know from staying at Excelsior Manor guesthouse.
This is such a pleasant stop. The soaps and ointments literally lavender scented purchased to take home again but this always seems like such a homely and welcoming feel. This is true serendipity...
Thank you for recommending Kleinhoekkloof winery, our pre-booked wine tasting and charcuterie experience was devine and those views...

This little off the beaten track oasis was a real discovery.It was a wonderful experience to be shown how the process of lavender oil extraction took place.It was very generous of the owner Patricia to give us her time.It was also interesting to see how olives and lavender were in alternate rows the patter protecting the olive trees from inset disease.
The little shop was artisanal in the true sense of the word with all the products including rose geranium and tamarillo grown on the farm

The olive oil is really good. But the little deli is exceptional. I am so happy with my all-purpose lavender cleaning spray. I cannot believe how many times we have driven past the Klaasvoogds West turnoff - this is an experience not to miss and we will be back.

This is a hidden gem. Beautiful surroundings. The geranium and rose cordial was very refreshing. We were greeted with a friendly tortoise in the parking area.

Loved the muffins and coffee as well as browsing in the well stocked shop. I bought Lavender Marmalade as well as essential oils. Beautiful quaint place to visit amongst the trees.

Great to see how the products are made in the tour. The lavender, olive oil & rose geranium products are out of this world! Really great to support a local business in the area. A visit should definitely be on your list when in Robertson.

We had a quick visit at the farm to see what it was about.
They sell amazing natural products to eat and for body care.
They have also a little coffee shop set in the olive and lavender grove.
The perfect place to refill your stocks of olive oil!

Great friendly and intimate reception. Very knowledgeable.
Wheelchair accessibility is quite challenging though and menu is very limited but the quality is good.

Thanks. We have reduced our food offerings during the Covid crisis to protect our staff but can hopefully review this later this year.
