Wildekrans Country House is an absolute hidden gem in Elgin. We stayed for 5 days while on the Green mountain trail package. The view of the mountain from our room was stunning. Wildekrans is an 1811 homestead and each room is decorated with beautiful antique furniture, but still offer a luxurious stay. After a hard day of hiking each day...

We attended a 50th close by and had an excellent stop over at Wildekrans. The place is full of old world charm and warm hospitality, our only regret is we had such a short stay. We will be back to walk the mountains and reset our centre and our souls that is for sure!

I needed a getaway from the city and all I was looking for was tranquility in the country side and I found this little gem! Wildekrans Country House is a historic homestead dating back to 1811, situated in the quaint village of Houw Hoek, in the Western Cape, South Africa. We arrived late on a cold afternoon to a crackling...

Travelling to the western Cape to attend a wedding, the hotel hosting the event could not accommodate us for the two nights required. They recommended the neighbours next door: "Wildekrans Country House". What good advice they gave, Wildekrans is just a gem. The atmosphere in and around the house is just so peaceful, art all over and an orchard with...

What a fantastic hidden country gem in the Elgin/ Grabouw area! It is rare to find a place where you can truly revel in the Cape's winter but with the availability of more than two fireplaces made for the perfect opportunity to relax by the fire with excellent wine and a good book. The gardens are spectacular and can only...

A very warm welcome with a wood fire burning in reception on a particularly cold and wet weekend. The room was clean and very cosy with 4 poster bed. All facilities worked. Rose looked after us and made us very welcome. Breakfast was excellent and was served hot . We had a good stay and will come again.

We enjoyed a 2 night stay in the garden view and art rooms. It was so divine and a real treat. Alison is lovely and kept in comms with us from arriving at Cape Town airport as we had a very late check in. The rooms are so warm and we managed to sleep in until 8am - rare for...
