Jan Harmsgat Historic farms & Country House has seen a renaissance that captures its rich past, as well as fitting in with the discerning traveller’s needs: Space, charm and an unsurpassed opportunity to indulge in an authentic country ambience and history.
There’s not much that’s not on offer here this summer season. The ‘Overberg’ warmth of hospitality extends way past the accommodation offering at Jan Harmsgat, catering for all budgets with classic quarters, superior and executive suites and even a family villa.
Less than a two-hour drive from Cape Town, be prepared to be transported back to another era where open space, country charm and your comfort reign supreme.
Whether you’re looking to escape the city noise for a weekend or would just prefer to take a day trip and lose track of time whilst indulging in hearty, wholesome meals whilst sitting on the terrace and under the shade of the Pecan nut trees that date back to 2011.
The gourmet gourmands are in for a treat; with craft beer on tap and a choice between the great-value traditional menu as well as a lighter, more social sharing option in the tapas menu.
This summer the fun extends to Backlands Farm Tour, where day and overnight guests are able to enjoy a sunset picnic and wine tasting in the countryside.
For those needing to work off their hearty lunch, close off the perfect weekend with a scenic drive through the winelands as you explore our neighboring nature reserves, hiking trails or roadside stalls. In 2019, Jan Harmsgat is proud to host the first of their yoga retreats adding a wellness feather into their caps.
