About Wildekrans Country House

Wildekrans Country House is an authentic historic homestead (1811) in the dramatic mountains of Houw Hoek. Appreciate the contemporary South African art while indulging in delicious country food. Walk the art and fynbos trail into the Kogelberg Biosphere.

Nestled in a picture-book mountain and river setting, above the Houw Hoek Pass in the Overberg region of the Western Cape, South Africa; you'll find Wildekrans Country House.

Wildekrans offers bed and breakfast accommodation or self catering in the Homestead and Cape Cottages, all complete with four poster beds and log fires. Dinner is available on request and children are welcome.

Set in a rambling country garden with a swimming pool, Wildekrans is an ideal venue for private functions, childrens parties, workshops, promotions or product launches.

With the neighbouring rustic church, space for a 120-seater marquee and a romantic honeymoon suite, Wildekrans is a popular venue for country weddings

Enjoy leisurely walks in the grounds or hiking trails in the surrounding area. Go mountain biking, explore the Elgin Fruit Route, do the Walker Bay Wine Wander or stay at home and play a game of Petang (boule). If you'd like to watch whales or go to the beach - Hermanus is only 20 minutes away.

                  Food was great, lovely view, but found accommodation too expensive, was not value for money.

                  Our stay at Wildekrans was absolutely amazing. The staff are very friendly and hospitable. The rooms are spacious and equipped with everything you need for a pleasant stay. The surroundings are beautiful with a peaceful atmosphere. I will definitely go back for a revisit.

                  After looking for places to stay close to a wedding at Gabrielskloof Wine Estate, Tripadvisor rated Wildekrans as #1 in the area.I arranged with a group of mates to book out all three double rooms and the 4 sleeper guest cottage and the result was incredible.We were treated to service from Allison and her staff that was refreshing, committed and really made our stay one of the best breaks I have had to date.The rolling lawns, many orchards and beautiful setting makes this country house an ideal place to get away from Cape Town for a break.My only regret is not booking more time to enjoy the...

                  Stayed for 2 nights in the cottage with another couple. Enjoyed the setting and the peaceful environment of the gardens and general location. The house is ideally placed as a base to tour the surrounding area which is too far to visit on a day trip from Cape Town.Breakfast in the garden was an absolute treat.Would would love to return if we visit Cape Town at any time in the future
