Heilfontein Log Cabin is a self-catering wooden cabin located on a private farm that is situated in the Hemel & Aarde valley, 7 km from the small picturesque town of Tesselaarsdal in the Western Cape. Perfect for guests looking for tranquil, comfortable and rustic lodging, away from the city's hustle and bustle.

The cabin comprises 3 bedrooms and one bathroom, and is fully furnished for your comfort. Two of rooms are equipped with a double bed, and the third room has two single beds. The kitchen is fully equipped, and contains a fridge and a microwave, an oven with a stove as well as built-in cupboards to store crockery and cutlery, with other appliances included.

The lounge and dining area is open-planned, and the lounge has comfortable sofas and a large TV that has full DStv viewing, with a large fireplace that can also be used as an indoor braai area. Free Wi-Fi is also available throughout the interior. There is also an outside deck with lovely views of the surrounds, and guests are welcome to bring along their pets.

The Cabin is surrounded by Oak trees, and swimming in the river or fishing at the dam can be enjoyed, as well as mountain biking in the area. Heilfontein Log Cabin is 23 kilometers from Caledon and 40 kilometers from Hermanus. There are a number of wine farms and good restaurants - all within a radius of 30km.

Guest Access

The Log Cabin is accessed via about 3km of gravel farm road and you will need a car with reasonable ground clearance – although a 4x4 is not required.  On the farm, you are welcome to walk with your pets and there is the beautiful 3km Twin Peaks hiking trail through flower plantations and fynbos.  You can also cycle around the farm, swim in the dams or river pools and fish on a "catch and release" basis.  The Cape Kurper are small but plentiful.

Interaction with Guests

We are nearby and happy to answer any questions about the area.

The Neighborhood

In South Africa, Tesselaarsdal is known as "the village that apartheid forgot" as people of colour have stayed in the area undisturbed from 1832, when the joint will of Mr & Mrs Tesselaar freed their slaves and left Farm 811 to them. The village only got electricity in 1992 and is still off the beaten track.

Getting Around

Unfortunately, there is no public transport so you will need to walk, cycle or have your own transport.

Other Things to Note

As there are livestock on the farm, we ask that you please close gates behind you.

House Rules   No smoking. No pets on furniture. As the tap water is non-potable, 20L of drinking water is supplied. No loud music please.
