The sitting and dining rooms have been lovingly preserved, with glowing wooden floors and exclusive, traditional furnishing. One cooler days you may enjoy the fire, the best moment for an excellent Cape wine. The wine cellar offers a growing selection of wines from Stellenbosch, Paarl and Wellington areas.
