Self-catering family accommodation in a renovated farmhouse from the 1930's. Experience a farmstay at Bezalel Wine & Brandy Estate, just outside of Upington in the Northern Cape and enjoy a free tasting of our award-winning products.
The farmhouse is situated about 100 meters from the main facilities, such as the Garden Cafe and the Tasting Room. Please note that we are not allowed to legally trade on Saturdays and Sundays and as such these facilities are currently closed over weekends, Good Friday and Christmas Day.
The unit has access to a large stoep and braai area. Please feel free to use the ample supply of firewood provided - if you require more, please ask for a top-up. The stoep overlooks the lower Orange River Valley and our irrigation dam. You are welcome to take a walk or a bike ride through the vineyards. Please note that children must be supervised at all times.
Really lovely small authentic wine estate, beautiful cottage, excellent food & wine tasting and really nice owners. Highly recommended!
Martiens went out of his way to make our stay comfortable. The venue and wine was fantastic. Everything about our stay was great, I will recommend this to my friends.
A very quiant and lovely place to stop and rest. Would highly recommend arriving before 17h00 as the wine tasting venue and the kitchen are still open; the wine and the home-made meals ARE A MUST. The lamb, chicken and bobotie (local food) pies are delicious. The place itself, very 'farmy' feel and it is incredibly calm in the evening.
Lovely little cottage with everything you need !! The wine tasting which is part of it, was great and such fun, we will be back !!!!
Great place to stay if you do not want city life.
My friend and I spent one night in the room. Martiens is a great host and tried everything possible to make our stay unforgettable. Even though the kitchen was actually closed we got a very nice dinner I'm their beautiful garden. I can absolutely recommend this accommodation!
Cheers so much for absolutely everything, Martiens! Coming into Upington in the middle of the night because of car troubles, you still made sure to give us the most warm and friendly welcome. Everything about your apartment is exceptional but standing out is your super cool and friendly service at all times. Big recommendation!
A great place to relax and enjoy the nature. The vineyards walk is gorgeous and the farm house is comfortable with everything you need. The description is precise and we had a great relaxing couple of days with our 7 months old puppy. Plus with thanks to the friendly and helpful staff, the wine and brandy tasting was fun! Breakfast was also lovely!!
What a wonderful experience. Being on the farm staying the night and having the tasting of Bezalel’s finest products! Definitely worth the drive and stay. Thank you Martien’s for taking us on a very informative journey about your wines, Brandy and liqueur! Definitely recommend Bezalel to anyone and everyone. And to top it off, the accommodation was more than you expect, spacious, clean and stunning in its own unique farm style. Worth every cent!
You must stay at Martien's place, and if you can, book the larger unit! It's right next to a pond that is perfect for reading next to or dips. The unit I stayed in, the smaller one next to the tasting room was also amazing. The old house was very cool despite the punishing Spring/Summer sun. You won't be disappointed.
