“Wow. An iconic spot, in the country, with sea views and fab Cape Town around the corner. We’ll be back. Thank you Alison and your gorgeous pets!”

The Hemming family, Kwa-Zulu Natal

“A perfectly situated haven of quiet that is close enough to Cape Town for exploring, but far enough away to see it as a retreat. A beautiful cottage with everything you need. We love what your family is doing to help the environment. Thank you – thoroughly enjoyed our stay.”

Aiston Family, Durban

- 10 Secret Things to Do -

Swim in Silvermine Dam

Formed in a natural valley in the Silvermine Mountains, and part of the Table Mountain National Park, this dam has the best swimming and picnic spots in the Cape Peninsula.

“This is my favourite place in the world to swim – safe, calm and quiet. It’s a secret, so don’t tell anyone – shhh!”

Watch the Horses Train on Noordhoek Beach

Get up early and head to Noodhoek’s Long Beach. “To see these magnificent animals emerge from the Atlantic mists and gallop across the white sands catches my breath every time.” You can join in the fun by booking a beach ride with a local stable

Go for a night walk around Leopardstone Hill and spot the Red Data listed Western Leopard Toad.

“Noordhoek is one of the last strongholds of this placid and extravagantly marked animal. In August join our local volunteer group and help save the breeding toads. Others may have the Big 5, but we have the Wet 5!”

Have breakfast at the Noordhoek Farm Village at one of four fantastic eateries.

Breakfast at the Farm Village is especially good after a run or cycle in the area. “Chef Franck Dangereux has created a relaxed yet elegant eatery at the Food Barn – incredible food and outstanding coffee!”

Walk to the top of Noordhoek Peak and look out for the Vereaux’s Eagle Nesting site.

“On a clear day you truly can see forever. Don’t take my word for it – pack a picnic and see for yourself!”

Browse through the collectable shops in Kalk Bay’s quaint high street.

Look for antiques, books, clothes and African crafts. “Don’t forget to treat yourself to an authentic Italian gelato before buying the catch of the day from the harbour for your supper. What could be better than a fish braai in Noordhoek?”

Go Twitching

The Cape Floral kingdom boasts fynbos, forest and wetland habitats, and 60 of South Africa’s 84 endemics can be found in the Cape alone. Visit the African penguins at Boulders beach for a close encounter with this endangered species. “At Leopardstone Hill we are often thrilled to hear the cry of the African Fish Eagle as it flies over the valley. We all scramble for the binoculars!”

Spot Whales from Chapman’s Peak Drive

“Why head all the way to Hermanus to see the same whales that swim past Noordhoek?” Excellent sightings can be had from Longbeach as well.

Go Cycling

Hire bikes and head off to the Cape Point Nature Reserve. Spend the morning seeing zebra, eland and baboons from your saddle, and then treat yourself to lunch at the Two Oceans Restaurant.

Do Nothing

“At Leopardstone Hill we completely endorse the concept of relaxation. Grab your book and get comfy in our hammock next to the rock pool. Before you know it, it’ll be time for sundowners!”
