Welbeloond ACCOMMODATION in Durbanville

The Old Bull Pen

As Welbeloond is steeped in history, so the owners have carefully reconstructed and transformed the Old Bull Pen into a homely and comfortable space for country travellers. After a restful night, enjoy a braai on the stoep, play tennis, stroll through the vineyards or take in the scenery and enjoy the architectural charm of this newly refurbished cottage. 

You’ll also have the opportunity to use biking, horse-riding and hiking trails, which will take you through surrounding farms, vineyards and Welbeloond’s Private Nature Reserve respectively. This family-owned farm will offer you the ultimate country getaway and the chance to gain a truly restful holiday, with access to a number of shopping centers, golf courses, and beaches nearby! However, should you choose the full country experience, there are also a number of other world-class wine farms in the area!

Mountain Biking

Start your day with a ride along the Rural Mountain Bike Trail, the perfect journey for beginners and endurance riders alike. Take in the scenery as you meander through a range of stunning Durbanville Farms. You can even opt to stop along the way for wine tastings and special events.


The Milnerton Golf Course and Atlantic Beach Golf Estate are both in close proximity if you’re keen for a day on the greens. 

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.
