Dreaming of big blue skies, soaring mountains, long roads and tall forests, crisp clean air, green orchards, and lush vineyards? The Elgin Vintners Country House located on the Ridgelands farm in the picturesque Elgin Valley ticks all the boxes.
Escape into country living and feel like the lord and lady of the manor when you check in to our 4-star boutique guesthouse for a luxurious getaway. Built in 1927 to a Sir Herbert Baker design, our Country House has been restored to its Victorian glory, with all the modern comforts. Accommodating up to 10 guests in luxury suites, the Country House is child-friendly and gives guests the run of the property, including the swimming pool, tennis court and braai area.
As a tribute to the former owners of the Elgin Orchards farm, each of the rooms in the Country House is named after a former Elgin Orchards owner. Syfret, Browne and Denniston suites each sleeps 2 guests, while the Hahn family suite can accommodate 4 guests.
Our English country gardens are the perfect place to experience the view of wide-open Elgin skies and the encircling Hottentots Holland and Kogelberg mountains. Take a stroll across the expansive lawns to discover the secret fairy garden, explore ancient trees and hidden places, and enjoy the sensory explosion of the abundant flower beds in the terraced garden first planted in the 1920s.
Explore our apple and pear orchards, vineyards, and hiking and mountain biking trails around the farm and along the river. Have a game of tennis or a swim in the pool. Make yourself at home at Elgin Vintners and enjoy our wonderful natural surroundings.
