Hebron Estate

Finally the cooler weather has arrived and we could head for the hills for a weekend away. We were certainly rewarded for our patience and had the most fantastic weekend at Hebron Estate.

We booked the little cottage which is off to the side, away from the other dwellings and really enjoyed the peace and solitude. Hebron Estate is a Buchu farm and you are free to walk anywhere on the farm. There is so much variety and we were lucky enough to see some buck on our one walk and the beagle nose found lots of scents to investigate.

The walk up to the dam is lovely. Tall proteas grow on the one side and the different colours in the vegetation were amazing. Mountains in the distance, the promise of rain in the air and a great dog as company. Perfect.

Hebron Estate is definitely trying to edge it’s way into my Top 3! In addition to all the farm has to offer, other pluses are it’s proximity to Cape Town, the road is good all the way and the price was really reasonable.
