About Olyfenbosch Cottages

Olyfenbosch Cottages are two charming historic cottages situated on a working wine farm at the foot of the Langeberg Mountains overlooking vineyards, with stunning views beyond. The cottages are close to mountain trails and nature reserves and activities on the farm include hiking, bird watching, mountain biking, swimming, and fishing in the dams.

Hartbeeshuis is a quaint renovated house comprising two luxury en-suite bedrooms, an open-plan lounge and dining area, and a fully equipped kitchen. Part of this building dates back to the mid-1800s and the unit also features three verandah areas for entertainment, one with built-in barbecue facilities.

J's Cottage is a converted wine cellar. This Victorian cottage is set under oaks and comprises two bedrooms, both with inside shutters. Both bedrooms share a spacious bathroom, complete with a shower and Victorian bath.

Please note we don't have cellphone reception on the farm, you need to go 500 m down the road to get reception.

The views are beautiful, the house comfortable and spacious. TV/DSTV is only available inside the main house which are the owner's. We could only book in at 17:00 on Friday. On Sunday morning, we were advised that check out time is 10:00 but that we could stay a bit longer, but then the owner started moving in between us while we were having breakfast, cleaning up and starting to wash linen. This is even though no guests arrived the following day.

The many vineyards in the vicinity also make for an enjoyable and educational outing. We will defin...
