Roggeland Country House Review

Dating from 1693, this farm is one of the most delightful lodgings in the Winelands. The setting in the Dal Josaphat valley is breathtaking, with stunning views of the craggy Drakenstein Mountains. Guest rooms in restored farm buildings have reed ceilings, country dressers, and mosquito nets (not just for effect). The 1779 manor house, which contains the dining room and lounge, is a masterpiece of Cape Dutch architecture. If you have kids in tow, contact Roggeland in advance to make arrangements, but it is a family-friendly atmosphere, with a big lawn out back and bats and balls for impromptu games.
