More info about Wellington
Lying in a well-watered valley and surrounded by two mountain ranges, Wellington’s protected location and rich soils are ideal for fruit production and vineyards. Early Dutch and French settlers recognised this and today the town is renowned for quality pot-still brandy and fine wines, and is the country’s dried fruit HQ. Wellington is also a major supplier of vine rootstock material, free of the phylloxera aphid that once almost obliterated the world’s wine industry.
Wellington is an academic centre with several campuses and student digs spread throughout the town. It has its own wine route set amongst sloping green hills that will surprise and delight any traveller but what makes Wellington truly stand out is the friendliness of the people, quick with a smile and happy to stop and chat.
Wellington is an hour’s drive from Cape Town, reached via the main northern highway.

About Guest Houses
For a more down to earth experience there are guest houses. Less expensive than hotels, they offer a more homey environment, as well as more privacy. Converted from a private house it’s a much gentler environment and for those with furry friends, there are also pet friendly options. They are usually well situated with shops and places of interest nearby. Being so small it offers a much more personal and intimate attention to it’s upkeep, leaving you with a more polished and homely experience.
