Hawksmoor House
Hawksmoor House is a Cape Dutch country retreat located on a 220- hectare wine farm, Matjieskuil, near Stellenbosch in the Cape Winelands.

Meticulously restored and beautifully decorated with exquisite antiques, it occupies a stunning location amidst vineyards overlooking Table Mountain, and enjoys spectacular sunsets. A 25 minute drive away from the buzzing Cape Town centre, the estate is quiet and serene.

In addition to our guests, the farm is home to horses, cows, porcupines, hawks, pelicans and countless other wildlife. Our resident German Pointers Cosmo, Max, Alice and little puppy Jack keep a watchful eye on the daily workings of the farm.

Our friendly and cheerful staff stay discreetly in the background, providing you with the feeling that you have the entire place to yourself. Hawksmoor House offers a totally unspoilt, unpolished and authentic country home experience for those who need some well-deserved rest.

It is the perfect place to unwind. If you love dirt roads, sunsets, wine by candlelight, an owl outside your window, and don`t mind sharing the pool with the occasional disoriented frog, or getting a paw print of our overzealous dogs on your trousers, you have found your place!

House & Grounds
The grounds are laid out to include a large lawn, reflecting pond, lavender beds; vegetable, rose and herb gardens, gorgeous wine cellar with fireplace, wine tasting room, and a swimming pool with a view of Table Mountain. A fence around the entire property provides privacy and security.

Max, Cosmo, Alice and little Jack would love to accompany you on a walk through the vineyards to the nearby dam to check up on our colony of around 80 pelicans. If you are lucky, you might even come across a peacock, a porcupine, a tortoise or a small deer on the way.

Hawksmoor House Activities:

We are only 25 minutes from Cape Town, surrounded by the rolling vineyards and dramatic mountain ranges of the Cape Winelands which occupy the area around Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Paarl.

Stellenbosch, a leisurely 15 minute drive away and the nearest town to Hawksmoor House, is a place of great beauty and historical interest. The second-oldest town in South Africa after Cape Town, it is also one of the best preserved, with a mix of architectural styles, including Cape Dutch, Georgian, Regency and Victorian.

Home to one of South Africas oldest universities, Stellenbosch is the Cape Winelands´ most interesting and lively town with numerous restaurants, bars, shops and galleries. Breath-taking scenery, unspoilt hikes, world class cuisine and fine wines await you.

With mild temperatures throughout the year, the Winelands are a wonderful year-round destination... and Hawksmoor House is the perfect base from which to explore this area!
