Our bouquet of accommodation is situated on a working fruit farm, on the banks of the Breede River. We are surrounded by breathtaking mountain and orchard views.
The popular river cabins "Dixon's View" and "Otter's Landing" (sleeps 2/4) are all nestled amongst the orchards adjacent to the river on White Bridge Farm. We also have Whiskey Yankee Cottage (sleeps 4/5), also on the banks of the river but close to the Olive Rock Wedding and Function Venue and even closer is the Annex unit (4/6 sleeper). We also have two double guest rooms, bathroom en suite situated close to the main homestead on the premises.
We are a mere 90 minute drive from Cape Town - approachable through various beautiful mountain pass drives.
Whilst here, enjoy wading in the crystal clear river pools or a game of tennis on our garden court (at the main house). There are fantastic walks on the farm and excellent hiking in the surrounding mountains. Bird watching is brilliant and fishing exceptional!!!
We are very well placed to visit the towns of Wolseley, Tulbagh and Ceres and experience the jewels that these towns have to offer. For golfers there is a great little course in Ceres 10 Km away and the exciting new Zipline Adventures ( longest Zip slide in Africa) for those who are not. Tulbagh has some wonderful boutique wines, art and a wonderful theatre. There is a challenging mountain bike ride near Wolseley which formed part of the 2010 and 2011 Cape Epic.
