About our home


If you enjoy luxury, privacy and space then this is for you. Stunning expansive villa in a lush garden overlooking manicured vineyards and majestic mountains. This property is set on a 35 hectare wine and grape farm and boasts a beautiful rose garden, romantic pond, sparkling pool and glorious views. Located between Wellington and Paarl, only 50 minutes from Cape Town, this retreat serves as an ideal base to explore the cape winelands.

The Manor House is the main dwelling of Bakenhof Winelands Lodge and available as an exclusive and complete unit for 6 adults ( preferably a minimum stay of 7 nights), regrettably not suitable for very young children. Should you wish to stay less nights or have young children we are happy to offer you any of our individual self catering suites on Bakenhof farm - please refer to

If you book the entire Manor House then you will enjoy your own private pool, dining room, lounge, TV room, entrance hall, kitchen, garden and 3 luxury suites with own bathrooms with direct access to the living areas but also with own separate entrances. The manor house is self catering - during your stay our onsite staff will continue with their regular daily duties as instructed by our Property Manager, to ensure the infrastructure, garden and pool are kept in good order. If you require a cleaning or laundry service this can be arranged in advance with a cleaning/laundry company, at an additional charge. Regret no additional overnight visitors ( maximum two guests per bedroom) or functions/ parties allowed, unless by prior arrangement.
We offer two mountain bikes to enjoy cycling on the farm.

Bakenhof Winelands Lodge offers accommodation for up to 22 adults and 8 children - 6 of the adults being accommodated in the Manor House. Should you require additional rooms we can (subject to availability) add any of our rooms listed on at additional Guest Points.

More about the layout of the Manor House:
Please refer to the floorplans in our photo gallery to get a better idea of the layout of the rooms.
The three available bedrooms have direct access to the rest of the manor house. A door can be locked to restrict access.
All the rooms have their own bathrooms, smart TV ( no DSTV subscription) and aircon.
The TV lounge ( only available if you exchange the entire manor house) has DSTV subscription.
We lock our own bedroom and study when we exchange - this is indicated on the Private areas on the floorplan.

More about us

  1. We are a semi-retired couple, no kids, only the furry type. Michael is German and I am South African, we live between our house on our wine and grape farm in the winelands, and our beach house on the West Coast of the Cape.

  2. With our airline and tourism industry backgrounds, travel is our passion. We appreciate the other good things in life - nature, design, food, wine, different cultures, art and music - but most importantly special moments with family and friends.

  3. We are very respectful and will treat your home and garden the way we do our own.

Where is it?


We are located in the heart of the Cape Winelands - 55 Minutes from Cape Town, between Wellington and Paarl on a exclusive wine and grape farm.

Bakenhof Farm is the home to Bakenhof Manor House, Bakenhof Winelands Lodge ( and Bakenhof Wedding Venue (

Many activities and sights in the area, including game safari, golf, horse riding, hiking, wine tasting, restaurants, shopping malls, monuments etc.
This is the ideal base to explore the different wine regions of Wellington, Paarl, Stellenbosch and Franschoek ( known as the foodie capital of South Africa).

From the farm you can also enjoy an African Safari outing ( day trip or overnight) to one of the Private Game Farms in close proximity. There you will enjoy an open vehicle game drive and see the Big 5 in their natural environment. Plenty options include Sanbona Wildlife Reserve, Gondwana, Inverdoorn Game Reserve, Aquila Private Reserve and Garden Route Game Reserve - some only an hour’s drive from the farm.
