Hawksmoor House is a traditional Cape Dutch guest house in a tranquil rural location within South Africa’s beautiful Cape Winelands region. Just 25 minutes from Cape Town and 15 minutes from the picturesque town of Stellenbosch, this charming country retreat sits in a 220-hectare wine estate with gorgeous views of the surrounding countryside. Offering 15 well-appointed guest rooms, a swimming pool and pretty gardens, this elegant property makes a serene and relaxing base for exploring the scenic Winelands.

The original farmhouse dates back to the 1700s, and guest areas include an elegant communal dining room, where breakfast is served and dinners are available, subject to prior arrangement. A traditional drawing room with an open fireplace is furnished with comfy sofas, antiques and period furniture. Hawksmoor House has a wine cellar and tasting room and tasting sessions can be arranged. Wi-Fi is available in certain areas of the property, however due to its rural location the signal may be intermittent. Outside, an attractive patio area is a great spot to watch the sunset and enjoy a pre-dinner drink. The verdant gardens house fragrant rose and lavender beds, a reflection pond, and a refreshing swimming pool with distant views of Table Mountain.

Onsite activities include wine tastings and relaxing in the pool and pretty gardens. In-room massages are available, subject to arrangement. Hawksmoor House is ideally located for exploring the traditional rural villages, beautiful architecture and numerous wine estates for which the Cape Winelands is renowned. The lively metropolis of Cape Town, with its host of attractions and facilities, is a mere 25 minutes’ drive away.

The accommodation comprises 15 tastefully decorated guest rooms within four traditional buildings, overlooking the gardens and pool. Each room has a double or twin beds, hot drink facilities, and an ensuite bathroom with underfloor heating, WC, washbasin, and a shower and/or bath. Several rooms have French doors opening onto a private patio with lovely garden views. One of the units is a two-bedroom self-catering cottage, comprising an open plan kitchen, lounge, and dining area with a wood burning fire, two ensuite bathrooms, and a private courtyard with lovely views.

Children are welcome at Hawksmoor House. Discounts are available for guests age 12 and under when sharing with their parents. The property offers a family room which can sleep up to two adults and two children in one double and two twin beds.

  • Thank you, we had an absolute wonderful time, and everything was well-planned and as described. Carla was crying on the day of our departure from Ants Nest, she didn’t want to go home and for it all to end, and when I asked how much longer she would want to stay, she responded “four weeks”

  • It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve

  • Hi Lisa, We had a fabulous time thank you. The accommodation and other ideation were all terrific - that’s so much for your help. The apartment in Cape Town was particularly good - we would never have found that: Boschendal was great as well and game lodge was superb. Thanks again, Alistair
