The 300-year-old farm Babylonstoren

The Fynbos Cottages

A symbiosis which has also been achieved in the six new Fynbos Cottages.

The Fynbos Cottages are a true retreat amidst the beauty of the sprawling farm, surrounded by vineyards, orchards and a nearby dam. The whitewashed “cottages” are modelled on the typical Cape Dutch style and offer a perfect combination of tradition and modernity.

The cottages are nestled in a beautiful landscape and offer breathtaking views of the surrounding vineyards and orchards. The nearby dam is a great place to relax and enjoy nature. The cottages are designed to offer total privacy, yet are in close proximity to the farm’s gourmet shop, butcher’s shop, bakery and Babel restaurant.


The six Fynbos Cottages are all uniquely designed and offer a high level of comfort and luxury. The interiors are modern yet cosy, with large windows that let in plenty of natural light and offer stunning views of the surrounding countryside. Each cottage has a spacious bedroom with king-size bed, a modern bathroom with all amenities and a living area with fireplace and private library.

The contemporary glass cube

A special highlight of the Fynbos Cottages is the contemporary glass cube that complements the cottage and serves as a kitchen. The glass cube is equipped with the latest appliances and offers everything you need to prepare meals. Here you can indulge in culinary delights and use local products from the gourmet shop to create your own meals.

The Farm shop & Babel restaurant

The farm shop offers a wide selection of fresh and locally produced food that can be used to prepare meals. Here you can find, among other things, fresh fruit and vegetables, meat and cheese, as well as a large selection of wines from the region. The products are of the highest quality and are sourced from local producers.
Although you can cook your own meals at the Fynbos Cottages, it is definitely worth visiting the Babel Restaurant. The restaurant is located on the grounds of the farm and offers exquisite cuisine using seasonal ingredients from the farm’s own garden. The dishes are delicious and the ambience is cosy and inviting.

Overall, Babylonstoren is a true dream for nature lovers and people interested in farm history and culture. The farm offers a unique combination of nature, history and culture that makes it an unforgettable experience. We recommend a visit to Babylonstoren to anyone looking for a unique and unforgettable stay.
