Wildekrans Country House

Barry Gould & Alison Green

Country garden punctuated by unexpected artworks.  The five-hectare garden is structured around a series of distinct spaces – a neatly clipped expanse of lawn near the historic 1811 homestead, a formal rose garden, a pear orchard – linked together by wilder areas of indigenous plantings and winding pathways that encourage discovery – Rene Slee for House and Leisure.

Entry: Donations to Bot River Education Foundation. Guided fynbos walks. Homemade and homegrown produce. Lunch, tea and dessert. (Please book for walks and lunches.) Off the N2 at Houw Hoek Village, as for Houw Hoek Inn.
