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.
Perfect location en route to Cape Town. Very clean and comfortable accommodation. Wine tasting adds a special touch. Will recommend and use in future.
We spent a night here on our way to Namibia. A lovely space with everything you need. Fantastic wine and brandy tasting (will be sending off our order shortly!). Martiens is a knowledgeable and passionate winemaker. Would definitely stay here again.
Wow, what an amazing place to stay! We stopped for an afternoon and evening en route to Kgalagadi but wish we’d had more time at Bezalel estate. We found our unit to be spacious, comfortable and peaceful with everything we needed to self cater for our family of 4 (although there is also a restaurant on site.) We loved the beautiful gardens, enjoyed a very reasonably priced wine tasting and swam in the dam next to our unit. Martiens and his family and staff are extremely hospitable and communication was excellent. We learnt so much about South Africa from chatting to Martiens, he is a superb host. If you have the opportunity to stay here then don’t hesitate. Highly recommended:-)
Excellent stay wonderful host very beautiful setting
Excellent stay on a working wine estate. Beautiful farm house next to the dam with lovely view over the vineyards. House has everything you could possible need (including air conditioning in every room- crucial in this area). Martiens also shared his knowledge and passion about the wine and brandy making process over a tasting experience. Highly recommended!
The best wine tasting experience ever. Stunning cottages and very tasty food.
Fascinating environment! Good people. I'm embarrassed that I believed our family recipe for Malva Pudding could never be beaten, but, there's something in the secret they're keeping. (I look forward to the release of their Date Liqueur though.
We loved our cottage stay at Bezalel. It was a great experience to be able to enjoy wine grown from the vineyards around the corner, in the peace and tranquillity of the farm.
It was a lovely stay. Very friendly host. You can stroll through the vineyard and swim in the dam. Everything you need is provided. Much better than Dikhololo.
Martiens was a great host, and truly accommodating. The farm experience was wonderful, peaceful and just what we needed! Thank you
