Boesmansdrift Farmhouse

3/5

Welcome to Boesmansdrift, for the genuine country-living experience!
Come and relax in our fully furnished self-catering farm house, nestled along the gently meandering Breede River and surrounded by idyllic fruit orchards and vineyards.

Appointed within spitting distance of Bonnievale itself (1km) and straddling the Breede River, this fruit and grape farm clearly has plenty going for it. While Bonnievale offers heaps of accommodation, much of it on the river, not many of the options can house a largish group in comfort and style – this is where Boesmansdrift rises to the occasion, especially when it comes to families with young kids.

While not in the old creaky smell-of-straw traditional farmhouse mould, the house ticks many boxes.
For starters, it sleeps eight in comfort, with a total of two double beds and four singles – think two nuclear families.
The river is a sensible 1.4km stroll through the orchards – meaning you won’t have to spend the entire weekend fretting about your little critters and can actually enjoy yourself for a change. There are two bathrooms, one with shower, the other with shower and bath. The living room features a fireplace, telly (DSTV point available, but bring own decoder and card), and timber floors (as does the rest of the house, which lends it a cosy ambience in winter. The kitchen is fully equipped. Outside you will find a built-in braai on the patio.

Follow the N1 to Worcester. Take the R60 to Robertson. At the Robertson circle take the right turn to Bonnievale(R317). Follow the road to Bonnievale for ±29km. Drive through Bonnievale until you see the Parmalat Cheese Shop on your left. It is the first house after the Parmalat Cheese Shop on your right hand side.

From Cape Town on the N2:
Follow the N2 past Caledon and Riviersonderend up to Stormsvlei. Turn left towards Bonnievale. Follow this road up to T-junction with Bonnievale main road & turn right. It is the first house on your right hand side.
