Beaumont Family Wines Accommodation: Warm Country Hospitality

Beaumont Accommodation

Historic farm cottages, vineyard views and starry skies.

It’s easy to feel like part of the family at Beaumont. The down-to-earth farm setting, with views over the undulating hills and valleys of the Overberg, is home to three generations of the Beaumont family, who have created an inimitable away-from-it-all ambience that invites you to relax and unwind.

Step back in time

Beaumont Farm Cottages

The farm has a long history, dating back to the 1700s. The Beaumonts arrived in 1974 and set about replanting vineyards, orchards and gardens, and restoring the 250-year-old buildings, which include one of the oldest water mills in the country.  

Three farm cottages offer visitors a base for a weekend of blissful rural peace, serene views, candle-lit evenings and big, star-studded skies. Luxuriously fitted out but still authentic, with a feel of stepping back in time, the cottages are perfectly placed to kick back and relax – swimming in the farm dams, exploring the trails on foot or mountain bike, and tasting the Beaumonts’ finely crafted, minimal-intervention wines.

Delicious farm food

Beaumont Farm Kitchen

The cottages are self-catering but there’s no need to cook, unless you want to. The farm kitchen restaurant is the place for brunch and lunch, with a menu of seasonal, locally sourced, farm-picked dishes. It’s attached to Zest Deli, where the shelves are bursting with cheeses and charcuterie, home-baked goodies and preserves, and the freezers are filled with a tantalising range of delicious ready-to-heat meals – dinner sorted. 

The lodgings

Beaumont Cottages Interior

Dotted around the garden, and just a quick stroll from the tasting room, restaurant and deli, the three heritage cottages feature thick whitewashed walls, black tin roofs, shutters on the windows, wood-beamed ceilings, a mix of antique and modern decor, and open hearth fireplaces in the kitchens. Pepper Tree Cottage is perfect for two, The Mill House is great for a family of four, and The Stables accommodates a bigger group in three bedrooms – and comes with its own veggie garden.

While you’re there

Beaumont Accommodation The Farm Dam

With the farm dams (also good for catch-and-release fishing), hiking and mountain-biking trails, and superb food and wine, there’s plenty to do on the farm. You can also enjoy a guided history tour of the property, including a visit to the cellar and the old bridge over the Bot River. You may also be lucky enough to catch a Milling Day, when Andy Selfe runs the 250-year-old water mill, with organic flour for sale.

With its central location, Beaumont is also a great base to enjoy activities in the area:

  • drinks on the verandah of the Bot River Hotel (across the road)
  • tastings and restaurants on the Bot River Wine Route
  • horse-riding through the vineyards

  • golf at Arabella and mini-golf at Benguela
