Reviews for Bellingham Homestead
The place is awesome .You can view the sunset to Franschhoek valley
Terrific. Cheers to Elvis.
Lovely historical homestead with picturesque grounds and amazing hosts. It's a hard place to leave, book an extra day for yourself.
Beautiful setting, but if the owners/trustees do not make a huge capital investment in the property, five years down the line it will be completely run down. Begin with installing a housekeeping service, a reception desk will also help. The garden is lovely but all the statues need to be repositioned and the concrete tables and chairs painted and made to be straight. Around the pool new cushions of a uniform colour should be introduced ....need i say more?
Stunning venue. Great breakaway from the race :-}
