Welbeloond Farm, just outside Cape Town, consists of 600 hectares of arable land of which most is utilized for the cultivation of grains like oats, wheat and barley. There is also 40 hectares under vines and another 100 hectares has been set aside for the conservation of the Cape’s world renown Fynbos & Renosterbos flora. The Hereford and Black Angus cattle herds complete the picture of this working farm.




Construction of the manor house and farm buildings was completed 1785. The Mellish family philosophy is to preserve the old buildings in their care by sympathetic renovation in order to retain the original character of Welbeloond’s 18th century farmyard. Even the two old silos, dating back to a bygone era when cattle feed was preserved in these old buildings, were brought back to their former glory for future generations to see and enjoy.


The first two bedroom en suite cottage to be renovated was the Horse Stable and when that was completed the Mellish family converted the Old Bull Pen into the one bedroom en suite honeymoon cottage. The conversion of the Granary into a two bedroom en suite cottage followed soon afterwards.

These three lovingly restored self catering thatched cottages with exposed beams and large log fire places now offer comfortable accommodation for up to 10 people.

One thing is for sure, whether you wish to explore Cape Town, its magnificent beaches or wine routes, you will return home refreshed and already planning a return trip to the peace and tranquillity of this rural retreat just outside Cape Town. It is all thanks to Andrew and Bev's foresightedness that we now have this beautifully restored old farmyard right on Cape Town’s doorstep for everyone to enjoy.

This is why Welbeloond Farm Cottages set within this 18th century farmyard offers a perfect getaway for people who enjoy real peace and tranquillity but still want to be near the hustle and bustle of a city like Cape Town and
all it has to offer.



The beautifully thatched function venue served as a coach house & byre for many years. It now comfortably seats 120 people when using the full facility or 50 people when only one section is used for a smaller, more intimate group.

The lovely old byre can also be used as a chapel and your guests need only walk through to the Coach House for the reception making Welbeloond an idyllic setting for a romantic wedding. It has a well equipped kitchen and everything one needs to entertain one’s friends or business associates to the highest order.

The open grassed area set in the centre of the farmyard can be used for marquee functions, exhibitions and festivals. Please note that outside caterers of your choice can use all our kitchen facilities at no extra charge.
