Overview
More
Owl's Rest is a boutique Olive and Lavender Farm. The farm sells a range of olive products as well as some unique and delicious food products derived from the farm's fruit trees. A key part of the farm's business is the cultivation and distillation of Lavender, Rose Geranium and Rosemary to produce pure essential oils and hydrosols. These herbal products are sold in their natural, pure form and also serve as key ingredients in the range of gentle personal care products offered at Owl's Rest.

Just before you reach Robertson on the R62 from Aston Owl's Rest nestles on the foothills of the Langeberg. A smaller outfit with a variety of lavender and olive products. A beautiful and quiet place well worth visiting.

Lovely little gem of a shop. Nice olive oil, lovely creams and such. And lavender cordial which was unusual but quite nice! I would recommend trying the chutney too. Got a bit of a kick and such a lovely flavour.
