Guests often search for this popular amenity
Abbots Hill is an elegantly decorated countryside destination on a hill in the beautiful Cape Winelands with sweeping views of the rolling Swartland hills and valleys.

The large swimming pool and relaxation area and all the bathrooms are newly renovated. All bedrooms are en-suite. Choose self-catering or bed and breakfast options.

Add-ons to enhance your experience range from guided wine tours, regional breakfasts prepared by us, to wine making and blending activities, and horse riding.

The space
Our vast garden has heaps of sun and a large swimming pool, but also beautiful shady areas for relaxing. Relax, browse through our extensive library of books and maps, and help yourself to our Honesty Bar for a refreshing beverage. Take a sip, swim, or read as you admire the spectacular winelands view.

Our guests are here to slow down and experience something memorable. Simple pleasures such as starting your day on the veranda among the birds and the sounds of our working farm will leave a lasting impression.

Where you’ll be

West Coast DC, Western Cape, South Africa

The house is on the highest point amongst the vineyards on Hillcrest Farm in rural Swartland in the Cape Winelands. Our summer is long, rainless and warm and grape harvest is in full swing. Spring offers spectacular wild flower displays bringing birds and people from far and wide. Autumn is a hive of activity with preparations for the short winter that follows.

We are well placed for day trips to Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Cape Town, each is 50 minutes away and the West Coast National Park with its azure lagoon is 45 minutes away. Riebeek-Kasteel is only 20 minutes’ drive and is worth visiting for its dining.

Hi, I am Jim, I’m South African and a registered tourist guide and certified to guide in all 9 provinces for wine, history, culture, and nature. I speak English and Swedish almost fluently and am also a self-taught winemaker (Hunneyball Wines & Abbotts Hill wines in Platters). I will gladly share my stories and knowledge of all aspects of wine enjoyment and production. You can ask me what you like. I also offer wine activities such as grape picking, wine making and blending at Abbotts Hill, a boutique wine farm in the Swartland. I am fully vaccinated and have the required professional driving license, public transport permits and insurances for transporting tourists. I am a Western Cape bird enthusiast and keen photographer. When reading, it’s usually about African history. When not guiding you can look for me in remote places or underwater. I look forward to meeting you
