Lekkerwijn is an historic Cape Dutch Homestead near Franschhoek with a new bedroom wing designed by Sir Herbert Baker in 1908. It was the home of Harry Pickstone, one of the founders of the Cape Fruit Industry and full of his collection of Cape Antiques. It is still owned by the Pickstone family and Harry’s great grandson, Simon Pickstone-Taylor and his family still live here.

Lekkerwijn offers a unique experience of staying in an historic family home with warm traditional Cape hospitality and tour of the house. We have 5 bedroom suites in the main homestead, two cottages and a separate room in the grounds (the Garden Room). There are 3 lounges and plenty of private spaces for guests, including an court yard sheltered from wind and sun. Lekkerwijn has a pool and extensive gardens and park lands where you can walk, relax and unwind. We have a driver available on site to take guests to local restaurants, wineries, functions and for airport transfer 24 hours.

Lekkerwijn is in the heart of the wine country, right next door Boschendal, Allée Bleue and Solms Delta wineries, all of which have great restaurants, coffee shops, picnics and wine tasting. We are 10-15 minutes by car to 5 of the top 20 restaurants in South Africa. We are also close to Stellenbosch and Paarl (15 minutes by car) and only a 45 minute drive to Cape Town.

At Lekkerwijn welcomes families with children (some guest houses do not allow kids under 12 years). We have a play room, special children’s room with bunks and a trained nanny to do child care, allowing parents to go out to restaurants with kids safely taken care of. We also have Transkei Miniature pigs, dwarf goats, rabbits and numerous other animals to keep kids (and adults) entertained.
