a farm, horses and roses...just a few of my favorite things!
Today we headed to the farmlands, stopping en route for a tour of the gorgeous Cape Dutch gardens at Babylonstoren and a farm-to-fork tasting menu.
This afternoon we checked in to the beautiful Langkloof Rose Farm in Wellington, dating back to the early 1800s. It was once a fruit orchard used to produce mainly dried fruit. Vineyards and roses were later introduced to the area because of the rich soils. The current chapel was once used as stables and the Tearoom was used as a storage area for farm vehicles and tractors. The bed & breakfast units, originally built in the 1840s, were used to house many of the farm laborers. The restoration of these rooms is so very lovely!
Langkloof Roses still supplies a variety of cut roses from over 12,00+ rose plants—specializing in vintage style roses. Absolutely gorgeous!
