Underhill Farm

Event information

Underhill Farm is an eco-friendly guest house dedicated to sustainable living by example through upcycling, recycling, and reusing every possible aspect on the property. The farm itself is a green oasis nestled in the Botrivier Valley between two streams and surrounded by apple and wine farms. Offering both beautiful scenes and sustainable living.

Every window and door has been upcycled ~ nothing is purchased new. Wine bottles become windows, pallets become furniture and discarded coffee bags become ceilings.

The Rivendell Cottage
Rivendell is perfect for weekend getaways for a family or small group of friends. Enjoy a dip in the plunge pool whilst taking in the view of the stream and mountains in the distance. A large covered stoep with braai and lounge area are perfect for evening braais, and enjoying the silence of nature.

Oak Cottage

The most recent build on the farm, which has been named the Earthship, as it is built into the south facing slope with a grass roof. It’s wonderfully cool in summer and with the clerestory windows and greenhouse corridor to the north it captures the full winter sun. The garden is covered by poplars creating a cool summer space with a fire pit next to the river to enjoy the sounds of the stream flowing right next to you and the sounds of the birds in the forest.
Sleeps up to: 6 people
Rates from: R2500 midweek and R3000 on weekends

In a world of excessive consumption and load shedding, Underhill Farm represents everything to love about sustainability with a bit of luxury sprinkled on top of it. Underhill is a place where nature’s most beautiful assets can shade, shelter and entrance you. The goal is to build with and in Nature, highlighting her beauty instead of taking away from her.
