About Underhill Farm

UnderHill farm is a 100% upcycled eco-friendly pet friendly guest farm in the Overberg nestled between the Botrivier and twaalfontein streams. It's less than 100km from Cape Town making it an ideal mid-week or weekend getaway to escape civilisation.

The farm is on the Van Der Stel Pass, which is popular for cycling and hiking. Franschhoek, Hermanus, and Botrivier are all within 40min of the farm and offer wine tasting, fine dining, outdoor adventures, shopping and more.

There are 3 rentable properties on the farm, Rivendell cottage (sleeps 4), Hobbit Hollow (sleeps 4) and Oak cottage (sleeps 2).

Rivendell cottage, perched on the edge of the Twaalfontein stream, has two bedrooms and a shared bathroom. The stoep features an enclosed braai area with ample eating and seating areas. There is a small plunge pool, large securely enclosed garden and a private pathway down to a brick patio with a fire pit next to the river.

Hobbit Hollow is located on the opposite side of the farm set into the bank of the Botriver. It has two bedrooms, shared bathroom with Shower, and a fully equipped kitchen. The outside is terraced down to the river with a covered eating area and open braai next to your own private rock pool. An enclosed shaded garden for your dogs to roam, with chill area under the poplar forest canopy completes the picture.

Oak cottage is the tree house of the farm, with large enclosed garden and big pool leading to the cottage with picture windows drinking in the views, a bedroom overlooking the river, lounge and kitchen leading to the deck suspended over the Botrivier for shaded braais and privacy.

                  We had a great time at Underhill Farm. It was beautiful and relaxing and our dog had a lot of fun! Very dog friendly. Owner also very helpful and answered any questions we had. Highly recommend for anyone who wants to get out of the city and who wants to bring their dogs along. Only thing is the Oak Cottage does not have an oven and I didn't check before I booked, but wasn't a big deal. Lovely place!

                  Life as we know it is filled with stress and deadlines and is a rat race that we need to remove ourselves from, from time to time. Also with the added stresses of COVID, we have all been move anxious. I have gone to lots of get away but can honestly say that Underhill Farm is that peace that I was seeking and was one of the best getaways that I have had. The clean air made me sleep like a baby so caught up on much needed sleep. i honestly was in another zone, felt totally relaxed and never thought once about my current stressful situations. Also my dogs were in heaven there - they loved...

                  Basically Hobbits Hollow had ruined me and my dog for life.. We simply can't understand why we can not have a beautiful river right outside our front door every day! Possibly one of the best pet friendly spots we've stayed in. The house is simple and rustic but super comfortable... But let's be honest, it's the river that makes it and how they have incorporated the braai and outside sitting area right on top of the river. Simply Magic! You won't want to leave... We certainly didn't!

                  The Underhill farm is great option if you are looking to de-stress and escape the busyness of town. The Rivendell cottage so cosy and well designed and we immediately felt at home. Thank you to owner Julian and farm manager James for being so helpful. Also very happy that we were able to bring our 3 dogs along with us, I think they may have enjoyed it more than we did! Will definitely be going back again.

                  We had a great weekend. Everything the owner was in a cottage right next to us, he did not bother us and left us to have a great weekend. He even popped by the morning after our first night to ask if we enjoyed our evening. The views are breathtaking and it was was in expensive. The only downfall would be the cat that came in on the Saturday to take a nap (by I have allergies). After the nap he let himself out. But that was the only negative. We will definitely be going back.
