Goedgedacht, a beautiful old 1704 farm, situated on the slopes of Kasteelberg near Riebeek Kasteel is a perfect venue for a wedding or family celebration. Become part of our tradition and celebrate your special day in beautiful Cape Dutch surroundings. In addition to the magnificent views across the Swartland to Table Mountain in the distance, we also have space for +/- 85 overnight guests.
Goedgedacht translated is well named as a place of ‘good thoughts’ or ‘good ideas’. It is a peaceful place filled with passion and energy, a place where good things happen, and we have been blessed to be part of so many special couples’ important days. The tranquility, clean mountain air and fresh spring water lends itself as an idyllic getaway for a retreat, wedding, conference or family holiday.
YOUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME
The tranquillity and beautiful scenery will contribute to whatever you do. Come and relax in the shadow of the Kasteelberg mountain. Take a walk through the olive groves. Visit our Olive Shop where you can find our olives, oil and delicious fruit infused salad dressings or sit on the stoep with some filter coffee and try our famous scones, while just soaking up the peace of Goedgedacht.
With 82 beds, an interfaith chapel, training, workshops, event and sporting facilities, The Goedgedacht Farm has become a well-known and sought after venue.
We provide space for retreats, workshops, conferences, weddings, holidays, break-aways, team building, youth camps and everything in between. Set in the beautifully restored old Cape Dutch buildings, with their metre thick walls, internal Victorian shutters and sash windows, the conference rooms create the perfect setting for “get out of the city” conferences, retreats or workshops. Peaceful places steeped in tranquillity, creating a restful atmosphere in which you can reflect, unwind, and really get down to some concentrated, focussed work.
We offer a choice of space to suit the size and shape of your meeting/event. Starting with a conference hall, which can hold up to 100 people, to smaller rooms for groups of up to 20/30. Flip charts, Video and Overhead Projectors are available on request.
