Orange Grove Farm
Robertson, Western Cape
Nestled in the heart of Robertson’s Valley of Wine and Rose, Orange Grove Farm is a luxurious lodge-style retreat that offers a secluded escape with magnificent views over the mountains and vineyards.
Just a two-hour drive from Cape Town, the working wine and olive farm has an elegant 200-year-old Manor House and six charming cottages with private plunge pools and verandas overlooking the vineyards.
Individually named after the areas where the owner mined diamonds, cottages are spacious and bright with fully equipped kitchens, comfortable living areas with fireplaces, and barbecue facilities for alfresco outdoor dining. Modern amenities such as coffee machines and plasma TVs with DStv, and complimentary Wi-Fi offer all the creature comforts from home, and meal baskets are available on request for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as shopping baskets for the pantry.
Surrounded by spectacular landscapes of natural rock formations, crystal clear waterfalls, and endemic fauna and flora in the foothills of Babbedasberg, the farm is a nature lover’s paradise and offers a wealth of outdoor activities from hiking and mountain biking to kloofing, bird-watching and nature drives.
You can relax with luxurious, full-body massages and spa treatments in the privacy of your cottage; rent a bicycle and explore the surrounding foothills; head into the mountains on one of several hiking trails with experienced guides. Order a picnic basket and spend the day relaxing and swimming at one of the waterfalls around the farm.
