The Wild Mushroom Luxury Country House

Certificate of Excellence
Here at Digteby Estate in Vlottenburg, a residential area in Stellenbosch, a passion for classic luxury with a contemporary flavour is fused with a unique winelands location. The prizewinning architect Hein Visser restored the old manor house brilliantly. The initial design and dimensions of the building were retained and the original walls, roof beams, door-frames, sash windows and solid kiaat doors revive a bygone era. In addition, the spacious farm house with its typical elements from the late Herbert Baker era gained a few magnificent rooms in the large roof area. There are seven en suite bedrooms in this double-story Luxury Country House. Each window offers an unobstructed view of the blue Boland Mountains. A stay in the Wild Mushroom, a uniquely South African guest house, is a visual delight and sensory experience in an exclusive, private environment.

We enjoyed our stay but were a bit surprised at the location as it seems like land had maybe been sold off as housing at some point and so there were buildings around the property which isn’t apparent from website. Nice pool. Large room. Jason cooks up a mean omelette!

Very comfortable hotel, with phenomenal views of the mountains. Staff are very hospitable and helpful. Rooms are large and to a high standard. Beds are also very comfortable. Breakfast is delicious, consisting of a muesli and fruit to start followed by a hot English breakfast.
