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.

We had a lovely relaxing weekend in Hartbeeshuis. The house is spacious and cool and is situated right on the edge of a vineyard. Lots of balcony space to soak up the beautiful mountain views. Lots of beautiful wine farms near by to enjoy. Next time we will be back for longer! Thanks to Jenny and John for making us feel so at home.

We very much enjoyed our stay. The cottage has a lovely farm setting and it was so peaceful to spend time there. The cottage is quite simply furnished but very comfortable and clean, and offers all that one would want from such a farm stay.

It's a little out of the way but close enough to everything to be able to explore the attractions in the area. The furniture is tired and kitchen very basic but beds comfortable and lovely clean linen.
