Step 6 – Visit the Local Sights and Restaurants

Seven Oaks is perfectly located as a base for you to explore the local area. The nearby towns of WolseleyTulbagh, Ceres, Worcester, Wellington and Rawsonville are all within a half hour’s drive away. Take your time to browse the shops, visit the markets, and find out about their history. Stop at the nearby farm stalls (Rietdakkie Padstal, Die Container, Die Vetspens, Creative Hub and HillBilly ) to buy fresh produce, delicious home-baked delights and gifts.

Scenic Drives, Hiking, Biking Trails

We can advise you of scenic drives through the Slanghoek Valley, through Bains Kloof to Wellington, and through Michell’s Pass to Ceres. There are many hiking and mountain bike trails at Jason’s Hill, Murludi, Waverley Hills, Kluitjieskraal and Tulbagh.

Wines

Our region produces some excellent wines – from artisan to estate to cooperative – so why not also taste at Bergsig Wine Estate, Botha Wine Cellar, Lateganskop Wine Cellar, Mountain Ridge Wines, Waboomsrivier Wine Cellar or Waverley Hills Organic Wines.

Restaurants

Visit a country restaurant if you do not wish to cook or braai in your self-catering cottage. We can recommend one of the many to suit you: OpstalWaverley Hills Restaurant, Bergsig Bistro, Bosjes Kombuis or Die Houtkewer.
