The Stables

R1200/night - Mid Season (1 Sept - 30 Nov)
R1800/night - High Season (1 Dec - 28 Feb)

The historic Stables at Welbeloond was originally constructed in 1785, more than 230 years ago! In keeping with the Mellish Family philosophy, the Manor House and other farm buildings have all been lovingly restored to retain their original character. The original foundations and architectural design remain, in newly refurbished country cottages that offer travellers a comfortable and memorable stay – the comforts of modernity with the charm of yesteryear.

Make the most of your stay at The Stables by enjoying features, such as the underfloor heating – the ultimate pleasure, particularly on cool evenings!

What makes The Stables one of the best guest houses in Durbanville?


  •  Entertainment & Relaxation In Your Cottage – As a guest at The Stables, you can enjoy a full range of satellite television at no extra cost. You also have braai/barbeque facilities at your disposal for breakfast, lunch & dinner with a view.
  • Accessibility – Considering that Welbeloond is a mere 30 minutes from Cape Town’s city center, you’ll have easy access from everything to Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, to local markets and Bloubergstrand (the closest beach – approximately 15 minutes away). However, you’ll find that Welbeloond is secluded enough to offer you a breakaway and country experience for the duration of your stay if you prefer it.
  • Facilities – The Stables is a fully furnished, self-catering accommodation with under-floor heating and every utensil and comfort you will need. For more information, view our cottage features on the right-hand side of this page.

Happy Clients & visitors

” Exceeding expectations – The photos do not do the location justice and we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The owners are gracious and considerate and the accommodation luxurious and affordable. We spent a nice quiet family weekend away from home, and the fireplace was a definite winner. Lots of room for little ones to run around as well as a jungle gym and some animals to look at. Firewood is provided and was dry and of good quality. All in all, a great place to stay. “

” Our Wedding – Lucy and I got married here on the 4th February this year. Fabulous venue, wonderful friendly helpful hostess, Ingrid. We stayed over in the cottages, we hired all of them. Absolutely great. We had the time of our life’s and would highly recommend this beautiful spot for your wedding/function venue and also if you just want a quiet weekend or weekday getaway. ”

” Wonderful, quiet respite from noise and people  We discovered Welbeloond through the Durbanville Hills Restaurant website and gave them a try for a last-minute (same night) booking after dinner. What a delightful surprise! We stayed in the Old Bull Pen which has been thoroughly rehabbed into a terrific self-catering cottage. Thatch roof, separate bedroom w/ king bed, en suite bathroom with fabulous shower and giant soaking tub, cute lounge with comfy couches and satellite TV, and a fireplace (we were there in summer so didn’t use that). The kitchenette has a bar fridge, microwave, small oven and 2 burner stovetop, and nice table and chairs. It was more than comfortable! Two horses tend to meander on the property – and one was obsessed with seeing its reflection in a nearby window. All added to the charm of the place. If we’re in that area again, we’ll definitely try to book there again. Was a real treat!”
