We arrived at Boschendal Dec 2 for 4 days. Weather glorious and fantastic views over the mountains behind the cottage. The cottages are nice, a little plain if the truth be told but very pleasant. We were a little taken back that the manor and winery are 2.6 k from the orchard cottages so a car is absolutely essential. The...

The cottages at Boschendal are located in a special place. The mountains surrounding the site are simply spectacular. The grounds and gardens are breath-takingly beautiful and the staff want only to please. So why 4 and not 5 stars? Well, some of the things connected with what you would expect at that level and price point in such a chi-chi...

As the titles says .You couldn't really ask for more and if you did it would be on the request list anyway e.g. a microwave oven . The view is spectacular , vineyards on your doorstep going to a small dam with the mountains in the background. Bedroom and bathroom are spacious and the bed is huge and firm and...

Had the pleasure of staying at Boschendal Cottages with a group of 26. The place is beautiful and I enjoyed putting in my 5kms run every morning or evening through the vineyards. The food was just the right balance of healthy and indulgence especially the baked goodies. The home-made bread they make is just lovely and the malva pudding the...

Stayed in orchard cottages, in pomegranate. The configuration was ideal, with 4 ensuite double / twin rooms. Amazing living space, and huge stoep overlooking the vines and mountains beyond. Had everything you could possibly need and was spotless. Only small issue... dishwasher flooded kitchen floor! Another small point , was we had booked the Boschendal picnic, but upon checking in...

Just spent two nights at the Werf cottages which were almost perfect except that one of the cottages had just been painted and the smell of paint was overwhelming and even dangerous. We were immediately offered another cottage but unfortunately it was much smaller. In our opinion, the cottage was not designed very well as the TV area was right...

Dear Maggie, Thank you for taking the time to inform us of your experience. We apologise for the discomfort due to the upgrading of the cottages, unfortunately this had to be done, however we agree it was not ideal to have moved you to another cottage. Thank you for the kind words though, and we hope to see you back...

We recently visited Boschendal for the weekend and stayed in the Orchard Cottages. These are beautifully appointed, spacious and luxurious. The rates are very reasonable and it is great value for money. It is self catering and there is a farm stall and butcher on the property when you can buy food. Alternatively, you can arrange for a continental breakfast...

Our family of four had the most amazing stay in a 3 bed cottage overlooking one of the many dams. The cottage was well finished with le creuset pots, dishwasher, super comfy beds and an enormous shower. We stayed in Trout Cottage which included a fire with plenty of wood, a barbeque where we cooked up some Boschendal steaks and...

We have made an unforgettable trip with our four kids in Africa, from Victoria Falls to Cape Town. We spent the last days in Boschendal Cottages, great for families, the quality of the accommodation was top, breakfast in the Deli was delicious, the kids played in the orchards, we all walked on the trails, my wife went horse-riding, and in...
