With stunning views over the Tulbagh valley to the Waterval and Winterhoek Mountains, our cosy self-catering farm accommodation and caravan/motorhome sites make us an ideal country escape close to Cape Town.
We grow vines and olives and you will enjoy discovering the abundance of birdlife on the farm. Come and visit Tulbagh, a wonderful country holiday destination!
In Room Facilities:
Our 3 self-catering cottages (Shiraz, Cabernet & Olive) have 2 double bedrooms each and are fully equipped with quality bed linen and towels as well as cutlery & crockery. The kitchen has a microwave, fridge and mini stove.
In the Cabernet and Shiraz cottage, you will find spacious double showers. These two cottages have beautiful views over the dam, while Olive has fantastic views over the valley and mountain ranges. From Olive cottage you can enjoy the most fabulous sunset views! Olive is also our pet friendly cottage.
The Witzenberg Mountains frequently turn pink around sunset, so head on to your verandah with a refreshing drink at hand and bask in the glorious sunsets!

Area Information:
Just 80 minutes’ drive north of Cape Town, at the northern edge of one of the most beautiful fertile valleys in the country, lies the historical town of Tulbagh. The village nestles in amongst the Winterhoek, Witzenberg and Obiqua Mountains, which surround it on three sides and provide one of the most beautiful settings in the Western Cape.

Proteas and herbs grow wild here and peaches, pears and 70 percent of the country’s plums are farmed in the shadow of the mountains. The valley is perhaps best known for its production of some of the country’s finest wines. Estate wines such as Twee Jonge Gezellen, Drostdyhof and Theuniskraal originate in the valley known as Het Land van Waveren where wines have been cultivated since 1906. (See Wine Routes).

Extreme day and night temperatures and the mountainous backdrop, which creates a number of different mesoclimates, together with extremely variable soils in the valley, create some notable wines. Interesting for the connoisseur is the valley’s unique ‘cold trap’ phenomenon - the horseshoe shape of the mountains creates a bowl in which cold night time air lies undisturbed forming a bubble, which is trapped under warming air during the day.

The people in Tulbagh are renowned for their warmth and easygoing hospitality and the valley has fast become an attractive weekend getaway for Capetonians and Cape Winelands wedding and conference venue seekers. An earthquake in 1969, 6.4 on the Richter scale, badly damaged some of the original buildings on Church Street. Most of these were lovingly restored and today make up the largest concentration of National Monuments - 32 in total - and the highest number on any one street in South Africa.

Tulbagh is perfectly placed for day trips to Cape Town, Franschhoek, Paarl, Malmesbury, Stellenbosch, Worcester and Rawsonville as well as the Cape West Coast and, if you plan your trip accordingly, offers some of the best displays of veld flowers between April and October, making local walks and hikes an utter pleasure.

Property Facilities:
Each rustic farm cottage has a cosy fireplace plus its own private braai facilities. All you have to bring are your provisions so that you can sit back and enjoy the tranquility of the country side. We also offer free Wi-Fi on site.
If you would like to do more than just relax and soak up the country peace, there are plenty of activities, restaurants and events in the surrounding towns of Tulbagh, Ceres and Wolseley.

5 secure caravan/ motorhome sites with clean ablution facilities, electricity points. Large boma’s for braai’s.

Guests are welcome to walk on the farm and enjoy the peace of country living.

We loved our stay at Fraaigelegen in the Shiraz cottage! Venishree was super friendly and we were impressed with the attention to comfort detail our hosts had for our cottage. Wood, matches, firelighters, candles and great quality crockery & cutlery were provided. We had fluffy towels and the double shower-head shower was a lovely surprise :) The free WiFi was a great touch and we thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful surroundings. I would highly recommend staying at Fraaigelegen.

We found Tulbagh to be close enough to Cape Town for a quick weekend away with family & friends.
Clean town with stunning wine farms, wine tasting and lovely restaurants.

Very picturesque with great hiking, mountain biking trails.

Lots of convenient shops in the town.

Can't wait for our next visit.
