A Little Slice of Heaven

I’m not someone who normally blogs about hotels. There’s not always a lot to the experience – you come, you go, that’s it. But when a hotel does things right, I mean really, really right, all you want to do is tell the whole world. And the Cellars-Hohenort in Consantia is one such case – tucked away in the heart of vineyards and wineries, the hotel is a tiny piece of English countryside calm, moments outside of bustling Cape Town. Service, privacy, seclusion – it’s possibly the most romantic place I’ve ever ventured too. Here’s a few snaps of the hotel and the unusual, spectacular tasting menu at their Greenhouse Restaurant and if you’re ever this way, I couldn’t recommend it highly enough. And to think, it all started with a fireside reading spot…



The Conservatory restaurant has a cute little outdoor patio…


Fresh oats for breakfast at The Conservatory, with a touch of honey..


Don’t judge me for the prunes

Lemons and limes in their gardens…


Love this little secluded garden and bridge


Dinner at The Greenhouse, a home-feel fine-dining experience, with white wooden floors and a nautical vibe, it was packed full of locals and tourists. The amuse bouche of green plant mousse, chocolate soil, fresh vegetables was kooky and amazing….


Who knew soil could taste so good?

Seb was dubious at first…


But he ate the lot

We knew we were in safe hands when this came:


Kabeljou, beetroot 3 ways, horseradish veloute for main

And by pudding we were completely sold. Apparently guests stay here just for their Camembert Cheesecake:


So cute.

And it ended where it all began: by the fire.


That’s all for now, stay tuned for some ramblings around Woodstock tomorrow… X
