About Dassenheuwel Farm Stay

Come and enjoy the tranquil surroundings in this age old homestead on a working wheat, cattle and sheep farm. Experience the warm hospitality of your hosts, Kobus and Lida Lesch, and have a walk up the Porceleinberg mountain, overlooking the Berg River and Riebeek Valley. We’ve restored these old houses for you to refresh and revive your soul surrounded by the beauty and sounds of nature….. Mountain bikes welcome. Dassenheuwel is the ideal spot for bird lovers - we have over 120 species in our area!

The Farm Stay Self-Catering house and cottages are situated 18km from Malmesbury on the R45 towards Paarl (please note: 12km’s out of Malmesbury, then a short gravel road of 6,5km). It is only 20-30 minutes' drive from the beautiful Riebeek Valley, Malmesbury, Wellington and Paarl. We are also a mere hours’ drive from Cape Town.  Visit all the wine farms, Olive boutiques, or stay over after a wedding/festival in the valley. Or better yet, just stay where you are, and enjoy the quiet and tranquil surroundings on the farm, a real hide away from all the hustle and bustle...

The Farm Stay Self Catering House is just below the original Homestead, but completely private with its own entrance and huge private garden with braai-area. New on the farm is a camp with  game like Zebra, Springbuck, and deer  in front of the Farm Stay.   The 2 cottages are next to each other and share the outdoor braai-area. The cottages are on the other side of the homestead... Contact Lida at 0828969124 for reservations, or email info@dassenheuwel.co.za
