We had a wonderful weekend at De Wagenhuis. Andrew and Anneke were welcoming and made us feel at home and nothing was too of a trouble for them. The farm is quiet and offers a lovely tranquil atmosphere. The food was delicious and the portions meant we did not go hungry.

Andrew and Anneke are the best hosts of any guest house I have ever been to. They are attentive, caring and nothing is too much to ask. The rooms themselves are very spacious, and beautifully decorated. I would recommend requesting a room on the upper level as they have great views. However, once you step out your door you can...

We experienced a warm and friendly welcome on arrival .Shown our fabulously comfortable rooms, Superb breakfast choices, all set in beautiful Cape Dutch architecture. There is an intimate chapel which offers an ideal setting for weddings, christenings and vowel renewals. A home from home ambiance. We'll be back again soon!!
