A real place where magic happens
Just an hour’s drive from Cape Town, this unique and special place has been called 'a hidden gem’ and 'a corner of paradise’. Set in a kloof of the Paardeberg, Fynbos Estate has become a favourite destination for those with a love of nature and countryside, comfortable yet simple accommodation and fine quality food and wine.
A grand old Victorian farmhouse and quaint country cottages nestled amongst vineyards, olive groves and mountains, make Fynbos Estate ideal for getaways, workshops, retreats and conferences. Lovely gardens, a pavilion and an old cellar, create a magical setting for weddings, parties, and other functions.
Four unique venues to choose from make Fynbos an excellent choice to host your celebration, corporate event or workshop. With a choice of wedding venues, Fynbos has a magical space that would be ideal for your wedding day.
Food & Wine
Fynbos country food and Dragonridge wines made here on the farm, are a central part of most happenings whether workshops or celebration. Food is seasonal, local and plentiful and the wine is delicious and naturally made in the old traditional way.
Stay in comfortable cottages or the grand old homestead. Fynbos sleeps up to 45 (sharing). All our cottages are family and child friendly. Two of the houses are pet friendly.
Pets are welcome in two of our houses, Caracal Cottage and Honey Badger House, both of which have enclosed garden areas.
Important notice: Pets are not allowed at the Farmhouse and farm yard (where the office is).
We have an, otherwise very friendly, Great Dane who does not welcome other dogs.
Magical Country Weddings
If you are looking to marry in the country, somewhere simple, authentic and beautiful, Fynbos Estate is your place. We can offer you a choice of four beautiful wedding venues with a flow of spaces for relaxed and happy celebrations and are committed to quality in every aspect of the event.

In 2013, after 7 years of bureaucracy, we became a Contract Nature reserve under the auspices of Cape Nature, enabling us to protect and conserve the natural paradise of the Paardeberg, we feel so passionate about.
