7 Wildekrans Country House

Houw Hoek, off N2

Wildekrans Country House

Barry Gould and Alison Green

Named after the “wild cliffs” at the bottom of the rambling garden, the Wildekrans farm dates back to 1811. The traditional Cape Dutch architecture countered by a contemporary art collection offers a city energy with a country soul, while the Houw Hoek Mountains make for a dramatic natural backdrop. This is an established garden of colourful roses, indigenous shrubs, aged trees, an olive grove and water gardens.

New this year:

The farm shopping, picnics and all things food will be in the gardens. 

Alice Toich’s “Eat the tomatoes where you are from”, an exhibition of oil art works in the Barn.

Entry: Donations to Bot River Education Fund. Tea, picnic boxes and farm shopping in the old barn. Book ahead for picnic boxes. Off the N2 at Houw Hoek Village, as for Houw Hoek Hotel, turn left at hotel.
