Overview

Named after the 150-year-old Blue Gum tree that grows on our front lawn, the estate is both a working farm dating back to 1839 and a private, family run guest house. We pride ourselves on extending guests an exclusive experience in a hospitable environment. We also place great value in our staff, as a result you will find that everyone is actively responsible for making your stay unforgettable. We want you to feel like you are in a private home – but with no obligation to your hosts. And as our guest, we will make sure you’re taken care of, down to the last detail.  Owners Anton and Tarryn de Kock strive to offer you with an experience that captures those things we tend to gloss over in the rush of modern-day life – an opportunity to relax in cosy, tranquil surrounds with great food, excellent local wines, wonderful views, and plenty of fresh air.

Rooms

Set a tad away from the main reception, our two Blue Gum Rooms are also family-friendly but more suitable to those families with older children. Each cottage sleeps two and comes with a king-size bed and an en-suite bath and shower, as well as a private patio.

Two of the cottages can accommodate four people with a main bedroom and an adjacent room with two single beds. The other three come with a king-size bed but are spacious enough to accommodate extra mattresses and camp cots should our family cottages be unavailable. Decorated in elegant English Country Style with soft colours, comfy furniture, and the warmth of wood underfoot, they all lead out onto the garden and offer mountain views from every window. Each cottage is equipped with a full bathroom that includes a bath and shower.
