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 an 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

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 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: Waverley Hills Restaurant, Bergsig Bistro, Winterberg Inn, Sir Garnet Restaurant, Calabash Bush Pub or Die Houtkewer.

Something for everyone

The region offers something for everyone, whether restful or adventurous. Visit the local Fynbos Nursery and Medicinal Garden or the Karoo  Desert National Botanical Garden (the only truly succulent garden in the Southern hemisphere); pick cherries at Klondyke Cherry Farm (when in season); ride a trail on horseback; play golf in Worcester or Ceres; go bird-watching; zip line in Ceres (the longest in Africa); fly in a two-seat glider with the Cape Gliding Club; enjoy a 4×4 route; take a safari at Fairy Glen ‘Big 5’ Private Nature Reserve; or visit the 1901 historic blockhouses  from the Anglo-Boer War.

Why not visit for an event? We can help you plan the best dates for the monthly Ramkiekie Farmer’s Market, the Hogwater Fig Pick and Eat (January/February), Breede MTB Challenge (April), Chrysanthemum Show (May), Wolseley 2×4 (May), Wolseley MTB Challenge (August), Wines of Wolseley Festival (August), and Breërivier Rally (November).
