About Pippins Country House

Pippins Country House is a guest house and backpackers situated in the heart of apple-growing country, Grabouw. Pippins provides an escape from the city lights, yet is only a 50-minute drive away from Cape Town. Grabouw is located in the Elgin Valley, which is a green paradise with enchanting stretches of forest, vineyards and orchards as far as the eye can see.

Accommodation is offered in dorms, twin rooms, luxury double rooms and campsites. The rooms are en-suite, and there is also a full kitchen available for guests use with tea and coffee-making facilities as well as a licensed bar and a large braai area.

Guests can fish and swim in nearby dams, or go horse-riding, mountain biking and hiking. Grabouw is not far from the coastal towns of Gordon’s Bay, Kleinmond and Hermanus, and Strand and Somerset West are only a short drive away.

Facilities

  • Braai/Barbecue
  • Parking on Premises

Languages Spoken

  • English

Important Information

Braais are only permitted in the designated braai area, so as to prevent fires near the apple orchard.

Our second time at Pippins and it was like coming home.  Still the same quiet comfortable room and still the same wonderful welcoming people.  We really enjoyed our stay and were sad to say goodbye. Would definitely recommend Pippins to everyone.  Will definitely be back again.  Thanks again John-John, Jan-Reinier, Mila and the two woofs.

If you are looking for a very chilled relaxing spot without all the fancy trimmings then this will be a good choice. A bed, bathroom and braai spot is basically all you get and need. The mattresses are comfortable and bedding clean. A fridge would be nice but if you are out and about the whole day, I guess one does not need one. Overall my group and I enjoyed the stay over.

The hosts are friendly and accommodating. The accommodation is basic and spacious with lovely views of the gardens & orchards. I would recommend this accommodation as a good base for visiting the Elgin Valley vineyards & orchards.
