We have uninterrupted views over the vineyards and the Havequa mountains. Your alarm clock will be the call of a Ringneck Turtle dove or guinea fowl. If you are lucky, a fish eagle. Traffic consists of the odd tractor pulling a harvest- filled trailer, with grapes, peaches or olives. You'll have to rush for your cell or camera to shoot a miracle happening in nature. The butterflies may shunt you around, but that's life in a farming villiage hidden in a valley you may have sped past at high speed down the Du Toitskloof pass. If need to get away from it all, this is the place to come. Have you ever heard the evening breeze before you feel it? Here you do. The wind will whisper its secrets to as it passes over vineyard, orchard, forest, hills and dales.

About the neighbourhood
Wellington is a farming town in the heart of the Cape Winelands. It is an easy 20min drive to Franschoek, 40 min to the airport, 10 min from Paarl. It is set in a picturesque valley at the foot of the Havequa, Limietberg and Groenberg mountains, amidst vineyards, guava, nectarine, peach and citrus orchards. The R301 leads you out of town to the Bainskloof pass, mind blowing scenic drive to Tulbagh and Ceres on the other side of the mountains. The famous Duzi-canoe marathon's Berg River flows through the western part of town. To the North-west is Riebeek Kasteel withing a scenic 20 mins. Come see, come taste, come play and stay
Getting around
You could arrive in town by train or rented vehicle. We offer airport transfers. Although you might perhaps find an Uber taxi, it will be very expensive indeed. Please arrange with us, we offer transfers and day tours, which will also allow you to enjoy the award winning wines and whiskies or beers at the many vineyards around Wellington. We offer airport shuttle service and local tours: wine tasting, whisky tasting, shopping, cherry picking
