Grand Dédale Country House

About Grand Dédale Country House

In the hidden valley of the early wagon-makers, the country road winds alongside a meandering river past historic homesteads and through indigenous forests to the beautifully restored Grand Dédale Country House on Doolhof Wine Estate in Wellington, Cape Winelands. This impressive Cape Dutch manor house dates back to the 1700s, but has been elegantly transformed into a sophisticated and contemporary country house. Set amidst 380 hectares of breathtaking mountain scenery, vineyards and forests, being the last estate in a cul-de-sac, tranquillity and privacy are guaranteed.

A warm welcome sets the scene offering 21st century comfort and technology. Interiors reflect light, with spacious romantic rooms decorated with style and dressed with the finest linen. A thatched stone cottage offers privacy for couples or honeymooners. Cap Classique breakfasts, light lunches, teas and delicious three-course table d’hôte dinners are served on the large verandah. Spacious entertainment areas and landscaped gardens with a 15-metre pool invite privacy and relaxation. Be pampered in the Wellness Room, pack a picnic hamper and set off walking, hiking, mountain biking or horse riding or sample Doolhof's award-winning wines. Grand Dédale is the perfect venue for weddings and executive conferences.

Directions




Directions from Cape Town

Take the N1 towards Paarl.

Take exit 47 marked R44 Stellenbosch/Wellington and turn left towards Wellington.

Keep on straight (from here, Wellington is approximately 25 kilometres); on your way you cross a four-way stop and two sets of traffic lights until you reach a large junction with traffic lights (new Checkers shopping centre in front of you). Turn left towards Wellington.

After a few hundred metres you will reach more traffic lights with a large white church on the left (the Moeder Kerk). Turn right into Church Street/Kerk Straat (signs for Bains Kloof).

Continue on through Wellington towards the mountains (Bains Kloof). As you leave the town, the road climbs and bends to the right. You will see Bovlei Winery, a cream building on your right.

Immediately after this you will reach a sign marked Hill Road on your left. Take this road and then turn immediately right (follow the signs for Doolhof Wine Estate).

You will reach a T-Junction. Turn right again. The road soon becomes a gravel road. Keep straight on to the end (approx. 4 km), you will pass through Welvanpas and eventually come to double gates with the Doolhof D.

Welcome to Grand Dédale Country House!
