Knorhoek Country Guesthouse

Knorhoek Country Guesthouse and cottages Imagine a getaway deep in the heart of a working wine farm where your first waking moments take in the sounds of nature stirring itself for the day. You awake in crisp white linen surrounded in modern comfort and small, thoughtful touches added by staff who know the meaning of hospitality. If you’ve chosen one of Knorhoek’s three luxury self-catering cottages, pad through barefoot to a well-appointed kitchen and prepare your first coffee of the day. Relax on the stoep and watch the light. Your low-walled garden leads directly into the farm where vineyards, depending on the season, will either be heavy with bunches of ripe grapes ready for the harvest or perhaps the vines are turning russet to signal autumn. If you’re staying in one of our eight en suite bedrooms, prepare for one of our farmhouse breakfasts that will have you fuelled and ready for an active day either exploring the 200-ha farm or Stellenbosch and surrounds. Then again, you might simply pick up your book or camera and laze about the lawns under ancient oaks and avenues of Poplar trees planted by the families who lived and worked here over the centuries.
