About Underhill Farm

UnderHill farm is a 100% upcycled eco-friendly guest farm nestled in the Overberg on the banks of the Botrivier. It's less than 100km from Cape Town making it an ideal mid-week or weekend getaway to escape civilisation.

The farm is on the Van Der Stel Pass, which is popular for cycling and hiking. Franschhoek, Hermanus, and Botrivier are all within 40min of the farm and offer wine tasting, fine dining, outdoor adventures, shopping and more.

There are 4 rentable properties on the farm, UnderHill Farmhouse, UnderHill Cottage, Rivendell cottage, and Hobbit Hollow.

Underhill Farmhouse is shaded by old oak trees and can sleep 4 in two bedrooms, with sleeping for another two in the loft above the lounge. There are two bathrooms with travertene tiles and high quality finishes. The main bedroom also has an enclosed outdoor shower/bath.

UnderHill Cottage is between the other two cottages with its own facilities and private views. it has a large main bedroom with a king size bed and a separate alcove with two single beds. A wrap around stoep with views of the farm, pool, garden and mountains complete the picture.

Rivendell cottage, perched on the edge of the Twaalfontein stream, has two bedrooms and one bathroom. The stoep features an enclosed braai area with eating and ample seating. There is a Jacuzzi style pool and a private pathway down to a brick patio with a fire pit next to the river.

Hobbit Hollow is located on the opposite side of the farm set into the bank of the river. It has two bedrooms, one bath, and a fully equipped kitchen. The outside terrace features a covered eating area leading down to the river. It is quiet, secluded and beautifully situated with it's own wier built to naturally create a swimming area.

                  The Underhill farm is great option if you are looking to de-stress and escape the busyness of town. The Rivendell cottage so cosy and well designed and we immediately felt at home. Thank you to owner Julian and farm manager James for being so helpful. Also very happy that we were able to bring our 3 dogs along with us, I think they may have enjoyed it more than we did! Will definitely be going back again.

                  We had a great weekend. Everything the owner was in a cottage right next to us, he did not bother us and left us to have a great weekend. He even popped by the morning after our first night to ask if we enjoyed our evening. The views are breathtaking and it was was in expensive. The only downfall would be the cat that came in on the Saturday to take a nap (by I have allergies). After the nap he let himself out. But that was the only negative. We will definitely be going back.
