A wonderful Cape Dutch experience with the original furniture. We stayed in the cottage and enjoyed the experience.

The grounds offered a great playground for a birthday celebrate our friends birthday.

Great host and a wonderful tour of the main house .

This historic farm house is sited between Stellenbosch and a short distance to Franschhoek.
Simon, the host who is so knowledgeable on the historical facts gave us a history lesson on the estate that my wife and I stand amazed. The place is certainly very peaceful and well maintained.
Breakfast was fresh and loving prepared by the cook. We were greeted by 2 cute little pigs inside their enclosure that was a short walk from our room. There is ample of space for family with children here. there is apple tree, goat, cat and some other little animals around. Indeed it is a very hospitable place to stay. Thank you Simon, we hope to be back soon...

Room Tip: stay in the main house if you dun like animal.

My sister and I spent 2 nights at Lekkerwijn recently and fell in love with the beautiful old home, the gorgeous antique furniture and the lovely gardens which were full of bright red autumn leaves. Simon, the owner, made us feel so welcome and chatted to us like old friends! On top of that upon our late arrival on the Friday evening, tired and starving, we were offered the most delicious Cape bobotie ever - really one of the best I've ever had! And Simon brought a cheese platter to our room so we could snack before hitting the comfy beds. We will definitely be back to visit Lekkerwijn on our next trip to Franschhoek!

We enjoyed an night at Lekkerwijn, our kids slept in a separate bunk bed room, we had a very comfortable room in this amazing old home. The breakfast was good and the hosts even provided us with a bottle of wine which in the end they did not charge us for. Very hospitable nice place to stay in the wine lands.

Staying with visiting friends for one night at Lekkerwijn, we had a wonderful experience. We were greeted with open arms and immediately upgraded to some of their best rooms at no added cost. Two of us stayed in the Old Nursery Room located inside the main house. The furnishings took us back to an era of grandeur. The comfortable beds provided a fulfilling evening's rest while the luxuriously appointed bathroom cleansed not only our bodies, but our souls as well. While my visitors enjoyed the main building, I was offered a cottage out back that afforded me my own space overlooking the farm. Our host was extremely gracious and welcoming, making fantastic restaurant recommendations. In our free time, we strolled through the enchanted gardens full of flowers and ripe pomegranate trees. The Susies--both a wonderfully friendly staff member and the house dog--never failed to remind us of friendliness emanating around every corner of this estate. Highly recommended for a relaxing stay that makes you forget your worries, pick up a glass of wine, enjoy good company, and think "while you soon may leave Lekkerwijn, it will never leave you".

My wife and I have stayed at Lekkerwijn for some 10 years in February and feel we are part of the family as we are so well looked after. Apart from the excellent hospitality the building itself and its furnishings are of historic importance and the location is quiet and peaceful. We are just booking for next year!

Room Tip: The outside cottages have a particular charm.

My wife and I only had one night in the wine region, but wished we had stayed longer once we visited Lekkerwijn. The setting was tranquil and the house had a wonderful rustic charm; our room was quaint and the bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept in. There is a small pool in the garden where we spent a few hours relaxing before going into Franschhoek for a meal (the choices of places to eat cry out for a longer stay in the area). I would definitely stay again and recommend to friends
