About the garden

With reinvented ways of living that support the wellbeing of people and the planet, wine-tasting and weekly drive-in cinemas on offer, a Tree House playground to ignite the kids’ imagination and stunning natural scenery to admire, all through a unique South African lens, Boschendal is a farm like no other.

Within the 2,000-hectare space, a range of natural and formal gardens also await visitors. See Roses in full bloom during summer, watch The Orchard - bursting with Plums in spring - transition to a dazzling display of autumn colour and experience the popular Werf Food Garden. Don’t forget to visit the Farm Shop – the place to go for locally sourced meat, eggs, fruit and vegetables.

Younger guests can enjoy a guided authentic farm experience and learn about botany and animal care while adults run or hike along the many trails, discover the story of the farm through a guided tour or indulge in a delicious farm-to-plate meal at The Deli.

All I can say is the best picnic spot in the Cape Winelands! Excellent attentive service. The picnic basket is gourmet, delicious breads, cheese, salads and meats! The basket is beautifully packed and you truly feel special when you start unpacking your surprises! The wine is top-notch and the grounds are manicured lawns with massive oak trees, lots of shade, squirrels and sunshine! You can also enjoy the games they have for you, big Jenga, 0 & X s and others! I highly recommend this day out! It’s gets 5 stars from me!

We stayed in Franschoek for a couple of days over the Easter weekend with friends. Other friends that have been before suggested we take the tram for a wine tour. With various options available we picked a route that included Boschendal. It was our second stop and saw, at our arrival, the bubbly and oyster pairing. Unforgettable!!!! We had oysters at other places over that same weekend but could not be compared with this. Our only regret was not staying longer to explore more!! Well done Boschendal!!!!!!

Great place to take kids. Kids can ride a bike and play on the jungle gyms. Quick service and food was good/reasonably priced. The deli was interesting and had lots to buy from coffees, wines, pastries and bascottis . There's another home deco shop that sells cutlery and crockery, winter wear (hunter boots) etc a great day out with the family . 1 hour away from cape town.. recommended

Fantastic atmosphere and beautiful gardens. Loved the farm shop and deli. We ordered carrot cake and cheesecake to take home. When we arrived home, the box was empty and no cake! Was quite dissapointed…

Beautiful, but not accessible for those in a wheelchair. We visited when the wheelchair access points were closed and it was hell trying to wheel my sister around the estate to get to The Deli. Why this place is not fully accessible is beyond me - it is a major international tourist spot. Staff tried hard to help but the entire central area gravel and toilets miles away from the restaurants. Deli up two huge steps and we felt like a burden. Food OK when we eventually got in. Steak tough as old boots. Brilliant manager took it off the bill but a major disappointment.
