Shepherd’s Land country house welcomes you to a unique style of country house living.
Your hosts, Paul and Marjolein, have elegantly combined the rustic qualities of traditional Cape Dutch living with the splendour of sophisticated, yet uncluttered modern living.
Shepherd’s Land country house is located on the serene outskirts of Somerset West, a historically rich and residential town in the heart of Cape Wineland country. The surroundings are dominated by natural Cape fynbos, vineyards and the imposing, rugged slopes of the Helderberg mountain that wind their way down to a coastline of warm water and sandy beaches.
The central location to all the tourist hot spots makes Shepherd’s Land country house the ideal place from which to explore the splendour of the Western Cape.
Set amidst breathtaking natural surroundings on the slopes of the imposing Helderberg Mountains, Shepherds Land is much more than a guest house or holiday home.
Start each day with a breath of fresh mountain air and the aroma of real Italian coffee served with a healthy breakfast on one of our inviting terraces, or in the lounge at the open fire during the chilly winter months.
When you’re not out and about exploring the sight and sounds of the Western Cape, escape into our naturally shaped lush garden or laze around the tropical pool while soaking up the warm African sun. Drinks from the honesty bar are at your disposal throughout the day to keep you refreshed. And what better way to celebrate the end of a delightful day than around a crackling fire under a star-lit sky.
