Suspended between vineyards and the Helderberg Mountain Longfield is ideally placed for a charming rural experience just a few minutes drive from all that the Winelands area has to offer. Situated high up on the foothills with panoramic views that sweep down the valley of vineyards, all the way to Table Mountain and the setting sun, across to the Cape of Good Hope and the lighthouse winking from dusk till dawn out over the waters of False Bay, with the magnificent Stellenbosch mountains forming Longfield’s protective backdrop.
There are top-quality restaurants down the mountain, excellent wineries on the doorstep, no less than 7 international golf courses around the corner, vineyard walks from home, horse-riding trails a few minutes drive away. The pristine beaches of the Strand and Gordon’s Bay are 12 minutes away, and the historic town of Stellenbosch just 10 minutes away and all set in magnificent scenery. And best of all, after a long leisurely day of exploring the delights of the Winelands, is to meander back through the vineyards and up the mountain, to relax and luxuriate in Longfield’s glorious and peaceful setting
Your hosts, Pieter and Nini Bairnsfather Cloete offer warm, friendly and knowledgeable hospitality. As Pieter’s family has been involved in wine in the Cape for over 300 years and Nini organises private visits to special houses, gardens and award-winning wineries, one couldn’t be better placed for an interest filled and relaxing holiday, than at Longfield.
