Historic Assegaaibosch Manor House
Welcome the changing colours of winter in the Stellenbosch forests with a visit to the stately Assegaaibosch Manor House.
Just 9 km from Stellenbosch in the Jonkershoek Valley, Assegaaibosch is a picturesque setting for a picnic under the trees or a leisurely day walk. But for visitors who want to linger longer, the historic homestead is an elegant place to spend the night.
Surrounded by 180-year-old oak trees, the Manor House has a traditional thatch roof while yellowwood beams and wooden floors warm the interior. As befits an old homestead, the dining and lounge area is spacious and comfortable. The bathroom and kitchen are newly renovated, so you won’t have to forego modern conveniences. The one exception is television, but you don’t want to be distracted from these beautiful surrounds.
The Assegaaibosch Manor House was built around 1790 and today stands as a national monument and self-catering guesthouse. The guesthouse sleeps six people in two bedrooms and is fully furnished, with bedding and towels provided.
