Description

Babylonstoren boutique hotel, restaurant and farm sits on 200 acres of remarkable, organic farmlands, orchards, formal vegetable gardens and vineyards which you can explore to your hearts content. Or you can suspend yourself among the big, old trees in the hammock in summer and admire the Buff Orpingtons (very special chickens!). Or, in winter, curl up in front of the fireplace whilst your food is slowly cooking in the Aga.Guests are invited to join in the harvesting, pruning, planting or picking of our many fruit, herbs, nuts, spices and vegetables.Go for a run or stroll up the Babylonstoren koppie - the views and fynbos vegetation are worth the effort. Guests may also choose to canoe on the farm dam, cycle through the vineyards and orchards or amble down the spruit which is lined with 7000 clivias (rare plant that only flower once a year!!).Food is taken very seriously there is a farm restaurant, Babel, where everything is FRESH and comes either from their garden or the neighboring farms. The food served is organic, unpretentious, clean and a visual dining experience. Then, depending on the season and the weather, meals can be served anywhere on the farm. Over and above the variety of domestic farm fowls and pigeons in the historic Fowl House and the 100 snail-harvesting ducks, Babylonstoren is home to a myriad of bird species. Armed with binoculars, guests spend gentle hours ticking off birds from the farms list. A restored farm reservoir to swim in is perfect for hot summer days.Babylonstoren is a perfect example of an 'on trend prediction. as we move back to our roots, albeit, here, very glam farm roots and without getting our Hunter wellies too dirty!one and two bedroomed suitesa babylonstoren breakfastonly hotel guests welcome to Babel Restaurant for dinnerbreakfast and lunch and gardens open to the public between 10am and 4pm onlyfireplaces and underfloor heatingguest laundrypersonal bars in all suitesfull access to gardens at all timesa private guided garden visitguided walks around the farm through the vineyards and orchards and up the Babylonstoren Koppiecycling around the farm and canoeing and rowing on farm damsDSTV and WiFi Internet
