Welcome to Kingfisher Cottage

Situated less than 2 hour's drive from Cape Town, in the heart of one of the largest wine producing areas in South Africa and nestled on the banks of the magnificent Breede(wide) river, is Kingfisher Cottage.

Moor your kayak at your own private jetty, after a long relaxing day of swimming in the river, fishing and birdwatching. Then, languish on your patio with a bottle of local Estate wine as the sun sets over the river. Curl up with your own partner in the romantic Victorian four poster bed, lulled by the crackle of vineyard wood in your fireplace.

Abundant hiking trails, bird life, restaurants (within easy reach) and riverboat trips make for an unforgettably romantic experience.

Indulge yourselves.
