Wide-open spaces are a great place to decompress after months of lockdown, and Knorhoek ticks all the boxes for the perfect country escape. Situated in the Knorhoek Valley just outside Stellenbosch next to Quoin Rock Wine Estate, easy accessibility makes this working farm the perfect choice for a relaxed weekend away. The allure of delicious farm-to-table dishes, and top Simonsberg wines are just part of the story.
Spoilt for choice with a lunch menu served from 10am to 4pm. Starters range from smoked salmon salad with peppadews, dill mayo and garlic crumbs; to sesame crusted chicken salad with avocado, cos lettuce and vinaigrette. Mains include mouth-watering aged beef sirloin served with chips, caramelised onions and rainbow carrots; as well as pork ribs served with crispy chips. While Knorhoek burgers also remain a menu highlight, the estate’s superb Country 3- Course Feast definitely makes a visit here worthwhile.
Weekend getaways are the perfect opportunity for the whole family to take advantage of the 200-hectare Winelands property. Both bed and breakfast and self-catering units are available. Breakfast is served daily, and lunch can be enjoyed at the restaurant. Guests can also delight in birdwatching, cycling, hiking, or running, or take advantage of a leisurely ramble across the estate – all enjoyed in a safe, beautiful space. A choice of three trail routes offer potential sightings of the local wildlife, such as, owls, eagles, porcupines, or even a leopard.
