At the foot of the Waaihoek Mountain, situated in the beautiful Breede Valley, lies the perfect hideaway, Bosjes. Rich in history and natural splendour, with steep mountain ranges on both sides, and the Breede River that winds through the valley, it is an off the beaten track place of rest and quiet. Visitors to Bosjes will find the journey worthwhile if only to see the Chapel, an architectural masterpiece, and to enjoy the landscaped Chapel gardens.

Areas of Bosjes

  • Chapel Gardens

    The atmosphere of the Chapel gardens is quiet and serene, yet breathes a sense of life and energy in which guests delight. The diverse vegetation is a tapestry of contrasts from dry desert shrubs to lush tropical plants. A sculptural water feature forms the focal point. An elevated labyrinth extends the meditative atmosphere and visitors will relish the view presented at the end of an easy walk to the top.
  • Tea Garden

    Guests can enjoy sweet and savoury refreshments in the tea garden, which takes the form of an amphitheatre. Nestled in the chapel gardens, it is open between 10h00 and 16h00, from Wednesday to Sunday.
  • Bosjes Kombuis

    The restaurant has high ceilings, glass walls and a wooden terrace for outside dining. An inviting menu with contemporary Bistro-style food awaits the visitor at Bosjes Kombuis. The outside wall features a Delft-inspired mural designed by Cape Town-based artists Lucie de Moyencourt and Michael Chandler. The Bosjes Tree of Life is made up of 366 tiles and depicts the fauna and flora of the farm and its surroundings. Bosjeskombuis is open for lunch from Wednesday to Sunday.
