To do

    Spier Wine Farm

    WedgeView Country House & Spa is only a 5 min drive to the famous Spier Wine Farm, where you can enjoy the many different activities available. The Spier Art Collection is one of the largest contemporary South African art collections.

    The Vineyard Segway Tour is very popular and the Eagle Encounters is also worth a visit. Eagle Encounters has been going strong since 2001, rehabilitating and releasing birds of prey, promoting conservation and education, on land donated by Spier. Birds of prey keep the farm’s ecosystem in balance, making it possible to naturally control pests, without pesticides.

    Enjoy a lovely picnic at Spier Wine Farm or visit Vadas Smokehouse and Bakery where families and friends can join together and eat food that is carefully, ethically and healthily sourced and prepared.

    Mountain Biking

    The Magnificent Mountains and hills surrounding Stellenbosch offer unequalled opportunities for mountain biking.

    If you want to exchange the tarmac for a more rugged trail, swooping downhill and winding tracks then the Western Cape has more than enough mountain bike trails for you.

    Around the corner from WedgeView, MTB Bottelary Hills Trails part of the Bottelary Hills Renosterveld Conservancy (BHRC) offers some great Mountain biking trails. The closest official starting point from WedgeView is Overgaauw Wine Estate, but you can also start and buy your permit at Middelvlei Wine Estate or Zevenwacht Wine Estate.


    Ski, Wake- and Knee-Boarding

    For a bit of an adrenaline shot, why don’t you try your waterskiing skills at BLUE ROCK Water Sports. Other options are Wake-boarding or knee-boarding, which is great for kids of 6 and older.

    BLUE ROCK is situated on the beautiful slopes of the Helderberg Mountains, a stone’s throw away from Sir Lowry’s Pass, Somerset West and Gordon’s Bay and only 25 minutes from WedgeView.

    Lake Blue Rock is the only lake in Cape Town with crystal clear water and a depth of 60 metre, which is ideal for commercial and scuba diving. In summer, the water temperature reaches up to 26°C.

    The Cable (the over-head pulling system) is made for kneeboarding, waterskiing and wakeboarding but surfing on a door or barefoot skiing has been seen before too! You can either bring your own equipment or hire some out. The only requirement is that you are able to swim. It is also a popular destination for kite boarders on a windless day. For advanced riders, Blue Rock is one of the biggest obstacle parks in the world. For beginners, there are skilled instructors for assistance. Depending on the weather, night skiing is offered on a Friday evening from 7pm – 9pm. School outings are made possible with subsidised tariffs.

    The Blue Rock Restaurant and Café has a wide variety of Mediterranean dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner accompanied by homemade desserts.

    The Badi (our beach area) is great for relaxing, tanning and socialising. For the children, there is shallow water, a children’s playground and a trampoline. Shaded areas, umbrellas and deck chairs are available for hire. The other activities at Blue Rock are: volleyball, 6-7 metre high rock jumping point, 400 metre long fufi-slide as well as an enduro motocross track and a paintball field.
