Quoin Rock Wine Estate may be known for its exceptional wine and cuisine, but one of the defining features of this award-winning estate is an opulent Manor House offering spectacular views that stretch as far as Lions Head and False Bay.
This exclusive private residence is situated at 400m above sea level and is thought to be the highest residential property in the Western Cape. Surrounded by manicured lawns edged by captivating beds of roses, the Manor House setting is nothing short of exceptional. Framed by rolling vineyards and distant mountain peaks, guests here are entranced with heavenly views enhanced by brilliant, balmy sunsets.
On par with luxury villas popular for family travel, this Cape Dutch-styled home caters for the top-end international market. Its lavish styling includes imported Italian furniture, crystal chandeliers and antique cabinets. Dutch finishes are offset by the work of some of South Africa’s finest artists, including a piece by sculptor Joanne Doyle. Well-situated in a totally secluded part of the estate, the calling cards of the Manor House are exclusivity and ultimate privacy, making this perfect for multi-generational family vacations.
“The Manor House accommodates 14 people and has seven bedrooms. The main house features 5 bedrooms, with two private cottages containing two bedrooms each, accommodating a total of 14. We offer different packages – bed and breakfast, or full board,” Hospitality Manager Lana Maydew explains. “We have a butler and manager, so guests always have someone looking after them. It’s fit for a king.”
Other amenities for guests staying at The Manor House include a sauna, underfloor heating and the option of booking a private chef, hair and beauty treatments, or tours to nearby Stellenbosch or beyond. The old-world charm is enhanced with a stunning courtyard pool and terrace, where one can relax and take in the gorgeous views of the Simonsberg – offering a true nature experience which allows guests to totally connect to nature.
The Manor House is also available for exclusive intimate weddings, with the landscaped lawns serving as the perfect location for a private ceremony. Larger weddings and special events are well-catered for in a function hall accommodating parties of 150 pax seated and 300 pax cocktail style, while the neighbouring Knorhoek Estate is also available for wedding parties of between 120 – 150 people seated.
