Stunning venue. A complete surprise and gem. Must visit. Great hosts. Lots to do. Tucked away. Wine vineyards, dam, mountain climbing or long walks. Mountain bike paradise. Nearby venues to eat, drink and party.

After checking a number of properties in the area we finally "stumbled" on Oaksrest Vineyards - what a delight! My wife and I received a warm and inviting welcome from the owners Phillip and Louisa and spent the night in the fabulously appointed and presented farmhouse. Breakfast on the terrace with the backdrop of the fabulously maintained gardens was once...

Ladismith - not on our road trip radar. What a wonderful find and stay over at this exquisite country getaway! Towerberg views and lovely winelands. The cottage was well equipped, super comfortable and felt like home. Thank you for an awesome stay - next time we'd like 2-3 days to soak in the peace and tranquility.

We stayed for two nights in this fantastic property. It was far from enough. It is realy the garden of Eden. Such fantastic views, a very spacious house, diner served on our terras and fantastic breakfast under the oak tree. We loved the lake, as did our nearly two year old grandson who loved to row in his little boat....

Quite a distance on gavel from the main road to the location. The "welcome" grapes were delicious. Breakfast on the terras was great. We have been there just one night, much to short. We had a upgrade to a cottage for ten people in the middle of the vineyard!!

I will definitely go there again and I really recommend it to couples to spend nights like honeymoon with mountains view. The owner is really friendly. Unfortunately we spent only one night instead of three nights

Stayed in Pinotage Farmhouse. Very atmospheric large house, well equipped with all necessities and lovely gardens with firepit. Very friendly owners who also provided dinner and breakfast on request which was lovely. The surrounding grounds are beautiful and we could easily have stayed longer.

We stumbled onto this place by accident (due to poor response from other establishments in the area). What a pleasant surprise. Friendly people, clean and tidy, well equiped. If you enjoy fresh air, walking between the vineyards and beautiful views this is the place for you. Thank you to Phillip and Louisa for a wonderful stay.
