Tucked in the valley below the majestic Hawequa Mountains is the rural village of Wellington in the heart of the Cape Winelands.  Conveniently located within an hour’s drive from Cape Town, visitors will be amazed by the offerings of this quaint town.

Wholesome winter dishes, champion wines and unbeatable winter accommodation deals makes Wellington a great winter getaway.  Visitors can enjoy ultra-luxurious stay-overs or choose upmarket glamping with a jacuzzi on a working wine farm like Doolhof.

 

Outdoor activities are easily accessible with numerous hiking trails, bird and wildlife viewing, mountain biking and 4×4 routes available in and around Wellington.  Take a picturesque drive through Bain’s Kloof Pass, which is a national monument, or visit the Limietberg Nature Reserve in the Du Toitskloof mountains surrounded by indigenous flora and fauna, crystal clear rock pools, campsites and hiking trails.  Wild Boar Trails manage hiking trails on various farms in the region and visitors can call at the trail centre located at Val du Charron Wine and Leisure Estate for guidance to the perfect hiking spots.

Visitors can enjoy tastings galore in Wellington from wine to coffee and even ice cream.  Get a coffee education with a coffee tasting a Villamar’s Coffee Roastery or visit Perfect Place or Goeters coffee shops in town.  Tea lovers can enjoy an incredible tea tasting with decadent chocolate brownies at the beautiful Langkloof Roses followed with a pampering foot bath with rose petals and salt. Villamar’s ice cream is in a class of its own and will cure the winter cold.

 

Appreciate local arts and culture at the multi-disciplinary Breytenbach Centre, former home of renowned South African poet Breyten Breytenbach.  The house is steeped in the rich cultural history of the area and houses a gallery, tranquil garden and training centre.  Visit the Wellington Museum for more insights into the history of the region.

For another uniquely local experience, visit the Ou Kaya Padstal en Kwekery – a farmstall and nursery with delicious treats and drought-resistant cacti and succulents.
