Boschendal provides an idyllic natural setting for large and small functions and events.
Surrounded by the breathtaking Groot Drakenstein and Simonsberg mountains you will find many function venues to choose from enabling you to tailor your special events. Our collection of venues range from historic manor houses, multiple exterior locations and large purpose-built spaces with panoramic views.
Our functions team are here to assist you in choosing the ideal location, service and catering, ensuring your event is an experience your guests will never forget! Please call to discuss the various packages and rates available for all types of functions. Online brochures for Weddings, Functions and Conferencing are available in downloads.
All of our functions are catered in-house by Executive Chef, Allistaire Lawrence and his team. Our farm-to-table menus use only the best quality seasonal ingredients sourced from our fields, gardens and other local suppliers. We raise our own award-winning Black Angus cattle, acorn-fed pigs, free-range chickens and harvest most of our vegetables from the organic Werf Food Garden.
We have a number of 1 – 6 bedroom cottages and villas on the farm providing accommodation for up to 180 guests.
Boschendal is located in the centre of Franschhoek, Paarl and Stellenbosch. We are only 45 minutes drive from Cape Town City Centre and 40 minutes drive from Cape Town International Airport.
At Boschendal we practice sustainable and ethical farming, resulting in a better life for all. We work with nature to produce real food and offer contemporary farm to table cuisine in all our restaurants and eateries.
Dining options include the Werf Restaurant which is fast establishing itself as a culinary hotspot in the winelands; the more casual Farm Shop & Deli which also sells fresh garden produce and a range of food products made on the farm. Adjacent to the restaurants the artisan Werf Butchery offers high quality, naturally raised meat. We have two picnic venues: our full service and seated classic Boschendal picnic has been relocated to the Rhone lawns while the more casual Werf Garden picnics are now under the trees of the Pavilion lawn.
The Rhone Homestead serves a traditional Cape buffet lunch while our award winning wines can be savoured at the wine tasting room in the Werf area or at the Cellar Door in the Rhone area.
Luxury accommodation in beautifully restored and stylish labourers cottages is now available on Boschendal. Aside from enjoying good food and wine on the estate, visitors can also go on historical and vineyard tours, go horse riding, enjoy a relaxing carriage ride with wine tasting or try out our world class mountain bike trails.
