Wildekrans Country House

Barry Gould & Alison Green

Country garden punctuated by unexpected artworks. Large sculpture from waste materials by Francois Knoetze. 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. Home made and home grown produce. Lunch, tea and dessert (bookings preferred). Off the N2 at Houw Hoek Village, as for Houw Hoek Inn.
