Kersefontein Guest Farm Hopefield West Coast Velddrif
Originally purchased by settler Martin Melck in 1770, Kersefontein farm, with its fine old Cape Dutch homestead and rambling outbuildings, has been worked by eight generations of the Melck family. Now a National Monument, little has changed in terms of beauty, tranquillity and isolation.
Present custodian and farmer Julian Melck has converted a number of farm buildings into luxurious rooms and suites for Bed and Breakfast, and self-catering accommodation.
Guests are invited to relax and enjoy Kersefontein's unique and romantic heritage, or explore the thousands of hectares of farmland and river plains, all in a style and comfort which will complement the peace and magic of a wonderful place.
To match the long-standing exteriors and historic farm environment, the en-suite bedrooms and sitting rooms have been carefully decorated and furnished with period antiques resurrected from the farm's great attics.
The Kersefontein experience starts as you enter through the gateposts, and the grace and beauty of a bygone era envelops you.This is the ultimate place to spend time enjoying the gentle pleasures of life - long walks along farm roads, a good read from Julian's libraries, lazing on the banks or boating on the picturesque Berg River, or simply soaking up the peace and magic of this special place. The Berg River is host to thousands of waterfowl every spring and beyond the house the veld abounds in countless wild flowers during the late winter months.Being a working farm, a variety of farming activities are to be seen, depending on the season. Cattle, horses and sheep are some of the farm animals you will encounter on your walks.
Complementing the luxury and comfort of the guest suites, are the excellent meals prepared by Julian's staff, served in the early nineteenth-century dining room. Dinners in the evening can be arranged when contacting Julian.The original bakery is now the 'Turn & Slip' pub, dedicated to Julian's passion for flying, and minutes away from the farm's own landing strip.
