Nestled at the end of a tranquil valley below the historic Bainskloof Pass, Grand Dédale is set within an award winning Wine Estate, offering sweeping views of the valley as well as the Groenberg, Limietberge and Hawekwa mountains. The picturesque town of Wellington is a short drive away, Cape Town can be reached within 50 minutes.

The exclusive and elegantly restored Cape Dutch Manor House, formerly the private residence of the owners of Doolhof Wine Estate, comprises six luxurious and bespoke rooms and suites. A separate thatched cottage is enjoyed by honeymooners or guests seeking additional privacy.

Grand Dédale welcomes its guests with sumptuous comfort, discreet service and complete privacy and exclusivity amidst beautiful mountain and vineyard scenery.

Imaginative cuisine is served in private dining rooms or al fresco on the grand veranda overlooking the mountains.

Facilities on the Estate comprise a large outdoor swimming pool, a spa room, hiking and mountain bike trails, various walks and a wine tasting center. A variety of activities including horse riding, clay pigeon shooting, quad biking as well as golf played on world class golf courses, are a short drive away. The Country House is also available for private functions.

Attractions

With an abundance of possibilities to fill your day, we recommend a minimum stay of 2 nights.

The vast Estate offers a range of outdoor activities such as walking, hiking and mountain biking. For a leisurely stroll choose the River Walk, a path of about 3.2 km winding along the river bank with three pedestrian bridges crisscrossing the river, or opt for the Vineyard Walk of 3.7 km which will lead you past all our noble grape varieties and reveals the most beautiful views of all the mountain ranges surrounding us. For the more active hikers there are routes of up to 18 km starting right from the Estate. The wild life on the Estate includes small mammals, like buck, porcupine, baboons and even Cape leopards have been spotted!

Alternatively, the Limietberg Nature Reserve, only 10 minutes drive from the Estate, offers 3 different hiking trails through fynbos rich areas which are interrupted by clear rock pools giving hikers the opportunity to cool off.

Horse riding and horse carriage trails are available at a nearby Estate.

Many more activities, such as trout fishing, hot air ballooning, clay pigeon shooting and quad biking are available close by and we are ready to assist with arrangements.

Some of the most beautiful golf courses are within a 45-minute drive.

On request a professional therapist is available to perform a wide range of stress relieving and invigorating spa treatments, either in our treatment room by the pool or in the privacy of your own suite. It is advisable to book your treatment at least 48 hours in advance to avoid disappointment.

Our pool deck enjoys sun throughout the day. With its 15 meter length and a large “Champagne” step, it has been designed not only to serve the keen swimmer but also the laid-back guest looking to cool off with a glass of wine in hand.

On cooler days our tea lounge is just the right spot to spend the afternoon, in front of the fire place, with a good book from our library and a glass of red wine.

The full range of Doolhof’s award winning wines are available for tasting in the tasting room; on request, we will arrange a private tour through the wine cellar.
