General Description     

Buchan Estate is a country estate offering accommodation in thatched cottages with high beamed ceilings, tranquil views and furnished with touches of Africa. Set in three acres of paddocks and gardens, the estate is surrounded by mountains and trees with the Disa River running through the property.

With the emphasis on relaxation, privacy and nature there are only three cottages and each one enjoys uninterrupted views of the mountains surrounding Hout Bay. All have a private patio, modern fitted kitchen, TV, DVD, satellite and are fully serviced. In addition, each cottage has wireless Internet access. For a romantic getaway our honeymoon cottage has a king size four poster bed, sweeping mosquito nets and African stone bath. A conference room is also available with antique mahogany furniture, original artworks and paintings.

Guests are free to roam and explore the extensive grounds and enjoy full use of the heated saline swimming pool and sauna. In the evenings enjoy a drink by the river banks and see the host of bird life at home in our grounds.

Attractions / Things to do

Hout Bay is essentially a suburb of Cape Town. It is a small working fishing village set in a beautiful valley and surrounded by mountains and forests on all sides, with a vast array of indigenous flora and fauna.

The area of Hout Bay attracts thousands of visitors each year as it offers a small seaside town in the heart of a big city. With its own white sandy beach, famous harbour and marina, and its own boutique shops and restaurants, Hout Bay is an ideal destination for a visit to Cape Town. The V & A Waterfront is only 20 minutes drive and the airport is half an hour.
Services / Facilities
The three cottages are all private and secluded and enjoy uninterrupted views of the mountains and river. All three have full kitchen facilities including oven, microwave, fridge, and modern appliances. Each one enjoys its own private patio area with garden furniture and a braai (barbecue) is available. All beds are modern and luxurious and the Laird and Ghillie have a double sleeper couch in the lounge area. A starter hamper is included in the price consisting of fresh ground coffee, tea, milk and sugar, salt and pepper. Each cottage has wireless Internet access. 
Rates depend on the number of people in a cottage and the length of stay and the season. As a rough guide prices are based around:
Low Season: R295 pppn
High Season: R395 pppn 
From Cape Town Airport:

Get onto the N2 following signs for Cape Town city centre (and Kapstaad). As you approach the city watch for a slipnroad off to the left signposted M3 Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and Muizenberg. Take this slip road and continue on the M3 until you see signs for Hout Bay (M63) going off to your right. Once you have turned right onto the M63 continue following signs for Hout Bay. After a dark and very curvy drive through the beautiful blue gums of Constantia you will come to a large roundabout (circle). When you come to the circle the Constantia Nek Hotel and restaurant is on your LHS. You go straight over and down the hill towards Hout Bay. Continue down this hill until you see Tarragona Lodge signposted off to your right (watch for this sign at night, it is a smallish brown sign on the left side of the road). Turn right onto Disa River Road and continue straight, crossing the river. At the T junction turn left into Valley Road and continue to the Stop Street with World of Birds on your RHS. At this Stop Street turn left into Welbevind Way (a cul-de-sac) and Buchan Estate is the last property on the left. Buzz the top buzzer, marked Main House.
