Glen Eden Farm is situated on the R62, towards Barrydale 14km outside of the historic town of Montagu. It has three luxury cottages, a renovated house and a new glamping site (posh camping). All cottages and the house have private gardens with dining furniture, braais and the three luxury cottages also have private splash pools. The glamping site is our most unique accommodation experience yet with a hand-made gypsy wagon, teepe tent and a private pod with a bathroom and kitchen, the site also has a braai and fire pit. Both groups and pets welcome.
There is a dam on the farm which has fish, bass and tilapia, you are welcome to fish and swim there, the dam is filled with fresh mountain water so is very clean and there is a picnic bench to relax on. There are sign posted walks around the farm and we have some hand reared animals which you can arrange to feed, alpacas, goats, chickens and lambs, these animals were hand reared so are all friendly.
Noted as the halfway stop between Cape Town and Oudtshoorn on the popular Route 62, which is regarded as South Africa’s version of America’s renowned Route 66. Blessed with breathtaking scenery, the Langeberg region boasts some of the country’s finest wines and is known for having the longest wine route in the world.
Known as the "mountain mecca" of the Cape, Montagu lies surrounded by the Langeberg mountain range nestled between the Keisie and Kingna Rivers in the western corner of Kannaland, and is famous for her orchards, vineyards, local herbs, rock formations and healing hot mineral springs.
Montagu is one of the best examples of a late Victorian agricultural village in the Western Cape with a number of examples of preserved Cape Dutch and Georgian National Monuments - Long Street houses 14 of the town’s 22 National Monuments and Joubert House epitomises late 19th century living.
