Penhill Farm

It’s rare to find a country retreat as unique and authentic as Penhill. A scenic 90-minute drive away from Cape Town, you’ll spot its towering twin palms long before the outcrop of white-washed buildings set on endless emerald lawns comes into view.

About Us

It’s rare to find a country retreat as unique and authentic as Penhill Farm. A scenic 90-minute drive from Cape Town, you’ll spot its towering twin palms long before the outcrop of white-washed buildings comes into view.

The farm has a Manor House sleeping eight and four cottages sleeping four, each with its own pool, except for the Granges which both have a Jacuzzi. The houses can be booked separately, however the farm is perfectly suited for gathering large groups of loved ones for family reunions, milestone birthday celebrations, anniversary parties and the like. When taking the whole farm one also has use of The Cellars where everyone can gather together. This beautiful Cape Dutch building offers a large, open-plan room with lounge at one end, dining area for all guests in the middle and a bar at the other, with a catering standard kitchen to the side.

There is plenty to keep all generations active and happy at Penhill - dams and pools for fishing, canoeing or simply splashing about in, the best tennis court in the Karoo, boules, croquet, not to mention trails for gentle walks, more strenuous hikes and several fantastic mountain bike trails leading directly from the farm. While there are many delightfully picturesque spots where everyone can gather for meals, afternoon tea or sundowners, there’s also more than enough space on the 3 500 acre property with its well-tended garden to find quiet time alone with a book. Where better for a nap than propped up under a tree beside the dam?

Penhill Farm lends itself perfectly as a venue for weddings, yoga retreats, brain-storming workshops, in fact any event where accommodation in luxurious homes coupled with immersion in a gloriously beautiful mountain environment is what’s needed. Contact us with your ideas for a Penhill stay and we’ll make it happen!
