Hawkmoor House is an old landhouse, which is currently used as Bed&Breakfast. There are several buildings and in each building you find a different variety of rooms, each with an own theme (Chinese room, white room etc). The house is situated in a wineyard, so has beautiful surroundings. The location is perfect: away from the 'busy' Stellenbosch, but close enough...
