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