The Doolhof


The Doolhof is a charming, welcoming and an idyllic retreat. Set amongst sprawling lands and wineries, it’s a foodies heaven. Accommodating only six suites and a secluded cottage, it’s a great spot to rest up in when exploring the Wine Region. Close to amenities, it’s its own little sanctuary and one of our favourites when it comes to holding up for a night or two.


Our Thoughts

Outdoor lovers will thrive here – walking, hiking & mountain biking are all available on the large estate, with fishing, quad-biking, rafting & golf also possible nearby. Off-the-beaten-wine-region-track in beautiful Wellington, but no poorer because of it, the high tea is a great treat, and the thatched stone cottage is the perfect base for romantics.
