***Winner announced! Congrats to Andre van Assche who won this fabulous prize.
The rural smallholdings, milkwood trees, horse paddocks and wide, sandy beaches never fail to charm visitors to Noordhoek. Add an inimitably easy-breezy atmosphere, magnificent outlooks and a community-driven village centre brimming with restaurants, art galleries and shops – and you have all the makings of a charming (holiday) destination.
A special place to relax and soak up the scene is Kinghorns Gardens. Conceived, designed and decorated by owner Andreas Kinghorn, an aesthete to the nth degree, the boutique self-catering villa has two bedrooms and is surrounded by a hectare of landscaped greenery and indigenous milkwood trees, that brims with water features, a Koi fish dam, rare proteas, sculptures, organic vegetable gardens (where you can harvest your own ingredients) and other delightful discoveries.
A considered indoor-outdoor flow lends itself to the tranquil surrounds, where the sounds of birdsong and rustling leaves set the scene for a serene retreat. While the outdoor showers and swimming pool might not appeal on winter days, the Finnish sauna with stunning views over the gardens beats the chill, and indoors open stone fireplaces in the living area and bedrooms keep you toasty. Whatever the weather the modern amenities and carefully considered furnishings ensure a sumptuous, relaxing and revitalising stay.
Its close proximity to Noordhoek Farm Village means you can take a quiet stroll down the road to a clutch of superb dining options, a coffee roastery and several shops and galleries. Or go horse-riding or for a stroll on Noordhoek’s beautiful beach, or hike a mountain trail or two. Then kick back with a book from the library in one of the many relaxation areas dotted throughout the garden, or cosy up on the sofa by the fire.
If this sounds like your kind of escape, enter our competition below, and stand a chance of winning a two-night stay.
