Brookdale Estate: Vineyard Suite

  • 2 guests
  • 1 bedroom
  • 1 bathroom

In a valley encircled by the Klein Drakenstein mountains, Brookdale Estate is a place to slow down and enjoy the pastoral rhythms of the seasons, big African skies, birdsong and serenity. The whitewashed walls of the Cape Dutch-style Manor House enclose five suites, with a sixth suite in an adjacent building. These can be booked individually for a romantic getaway, or the entire house can be rented for exclusive use.

The rooms are lofty, and elegantly dressed in a mix of contemporary and period furnishings, and a muted colour palette that does not detract from the breathtaking views of sprawling vines, flourishing orchards, undulating multi-hued hills and dramatic mountains from every single window.

Additional rooms include a dining room, breakfast room, private study, lounge, library, fitness room and a view-drenched kitchen. There’s also a garden and swimming pool, and several courtyards and terraces from which to soak up the spectacular views.

Meals are exceptional – served in a different location each day. From the beautifully conceived and executed dishes to the superb service and impeccable setting, it’s the  kind of food we’d happily eat every day for the rest of our lives: healthy, flavourful, delicious, with ample variation and surprising ingredients to keep us rapt.


The Vineyard Suite is set in a building adjacent to the main Manor House. It has beautiful views of the vineyards and pool.
