Kersefontein (circa 1770), Hopefield

Originally purchased by settler Martin Melck in 1770, Kersefontein farm, with its fine old Cape Dutch homestead and rambling outbuildings, has been worked by eight generations of the Melck family. Now a National Monument, little has changed in terms of beauty, tranquility and isolation.Present custodian and farmer Julian Melck has converted a number of farm buildings into luxurious rooms and suites for Bed and Breakfast, and self-catering accommodation.
Complementing the luxury and comfort of the guest suites, are the excellent meals prepared by Julian’s staff, served in the early nineteenth-century dining room . (Dinners in the evening can be arranged when contacting Julian and I do highly recommend that you do book dinner) We visited Kersefontein in Spring and were bowled over by the beautiful daisies all over the farm.
