The Homestead (380 sq m) is the original Victorian farmhouse, built in 1892, under oak trees, alongside a fenced off dam and overlooking the vineyards.  It is the ideal family holiday venue and is very close to the wedding and conference venue, Leipzig Country House ( and Nuy on the Hill, the wine-tasting venue of Nuy Wine Cellar. It also boasts a very good restaurant. Willow Creek Olive Estate is our neighbour. A reservoir with fresh mountain water is used for swimming in.

The Homestead has a big lounge with DSTV and big fire-place (some wood provided.)  The large patio adjoins the kitchen which has a Euro-gas stove, microwave, 2x fridges plus a freezer.  The adjacent scullery has a dishwaser and washing machine.  An inside barbeque is also available. There are 5 bedrooms, sleeping 11 people (4 bathrooms, 2 en-suite).  Two bedrooms have double beds while the other three have twin-beds/King-size double beds.  One bedroom has an extra single bed in it.
