Description

Just over an hour's drive from Cape Town, Welbedacht Nature Reserve offers a stunning retreat in the countryside. The reserve is just below the magnificent Winterhoek Mountains and offers a tranquil environment, nature walks, an abundance of bird life and flora and spectacular views of the valley.

The amply equipped, self-catering cottages are tucked away between fynbos and orchards and offer complete privacy in this peaceful setting.

There are several marked walking trails which meander through the fynbos, rhenosterveld and wetland areas of the reserve. The trails vary from 15 minutes to 2 hours. We have private splash pools and there is also a large dam for swimming which is within walking distance of all units. The dam is surrounded by lush brush and trees and an abundance of bird life. A second dam inside the conservancy is stocked with wide mouth bass and tilapia.

Mountain bikers can enjoy various tracks and trails and these are maintained and managed by the newly established Tulbagh Mountain Bike Club. Trails on Welbedacht are free to use for our mountain biking guests. Additional outside trails are available for which a permit can be obtained from the Tulbagh Mountain Bike Club.

From the tall, leafy trees that provide shelter, to the fynbos with its vast variety of plant life and the savannah wetland grasses that provide an abundant food source for dozens of species of raptors and hundreds of other species, Welbedacht is a veritable haven for birds and birdwatchers alike.

Just five minutes' drive from Welbedacht, on one of the neighbouring farms, horse riding is available. Explore orchards, vineyards and mountain trails and take in the beautiful mountain views. All levels of riders are welcome.

Ten minutes' drive from Welbedacht is the historic town of Tulbagh. Take a stroll down Church Street which boasts a wealth of Cape Dutch architecture, several restaurants and stores, a museum and monuments. Olive groves, vineyards and orchards can be found in the surrounding areas, making Tulbagh a delight for fruit and wine lovers.

Here, away from the hustle and bustle of living, you may just find that all you long for is a book and a quiet, shady spot. You may wish to find a peaceful nook, let go of all distractions and immerse yourself in the immense beauty of the surrounding nature.

The setting is magnificent and you can truly rest and relax there. Beautiful little cottages! We had a wonderful time.

25 May 2014

What a wonderful place. We only wish that we had more time to enjoy the peace and tranquility. The view from the stoep was spectacular and the birdlife was very entertaining as they visited the 'dunking pool' constantly for a quick bath!! Walking the labyrinth was a very special experience. We hope to return one day.

08 April 2014

My husband and I had a fantastic break in wonderfully peaceful surroundings. The sound of the birds and the walks amongst nature is so relaxing for the soul; the night sky filled with stars and beautiful mountains brings peace and harmony... we have been before and will be back again... highly recommended!

25 November 2013

We had a fantastic stay at Eagle Cottage. The place was fully stocked with everything you need and the area was so peaceful. It was very hard to leave.

09 September 2013

The Stone Cottage is a cute little abode suitable for two with all necessary essentials and some for self catering, clean, hot water in a superb quiet setting against the mountains overlooking the Tulbagh valley. Recommended.
