From exhilarating whale-watching experiences nearby to exploring the scenic landscapes of the Overberg on mountain bikes, there is an activity to suit every taste at Blue Gum Country Estate. And of course, no visit would be complete without indulging in wine-tasting sessions, allowing you to uncover the beauty of South African wines.
Our experience at Blue Gum was fantastic! The staff were incredibly helpful and went the extra mile to assist us. It was convenient to have a restaurant available on the premises, especially since it was a self-catering venue, as it provided us with more choices. The presence of the friendly farm dogs was an added bonus that we enjoyed!
Our second visit surpassed expectations and left us eagerly anticipating the next! The food is divine, the rooms are cosy, and the service is truly five-star. It's a lovely family-run estate where the attentive staff cater to your every need. We can't wait to return!
An excellent location to recharge the tired soul and to enjoy delicious food and fresh air. The staff were wonderfully kind and helpful. The dinners have a wonderful feel of elegance long forgotten. Thank you.
