Situated on the banks of the upper reaches of the Eerste River, Stellenbosch is surrounded by great natural beauty, houses a collection of some of the country’s most well-known historical buildings, and enjoys a vibrant town centre packed with galleries, boutiques, restaurants and coffee shops.

The Oude Leeskamer Guest House is perfectly located to allow guests to enjoy the entire range of attractions, activities and amenities the winelands has to offer, including:

  • The Great Outdoors, through activities ranging from the more vigorous mountain-biking and hiking in the local nature reserves, to the more sedate fishing and bird-watching.
  • Local theatre and music, be that a classical concert at the Endler, an up-and-coming band at the Mystic Boer or an intimate Jazz evening at the Dorp Street Theatre Café.
  • Another go at scoring that elusive hole in one by playing any of the 6 golf courses all within half an hour’s drive of the guesthouse.
  • Indulging the taste buds – Stellenbosch offers culinary treats to suit everyone’s tastes and budgets, ranging from Saturday Slow Food markets, local cafes and traditional South African family restaurants to superb fine dining (Stellenbosch boasts three of the top ten South African restaurants in 2010.)
  • A meander through history, including a stop-off at the Stellenbosch Museum or Dorp Street (which has the longest row of historic buildings in the country).
  • Magnificent art works at a variety of galleries, including the Sasol Art Museum and Portchie's Red Teapot Gallery.
  • And of course – savouring some of the award-winning local wines and brandies.
