The Blacksmith's Cottage is a cozy self-catering cottage with old-world charm, historically situated along the Zoute River in the oldest town on the West Coast. It can accommodate up to two people. The bedroom is furnished with a queen-size bed, and makes use of an en-suite bathroom with a walk-in shower. Fresh linen and towels are provided. The kitchen is fully equipped with a stove and oven, a microwave, a fridge, as well as tea- and coffee-making facilities, and meals can be enjoyed at the dining table. The lounge is equipped with a fireplace for the colder evenings, as well as a TV. Guests can enjoy a sundowner on the stoep, or make use of the braai facilities in front of the cottage. The Blacksmith's Cottage is 450 meters from the center of town which offers various cafe's and restaurants, and guests can visit the Hopefield museum. The town is surrounded by over 500 different species of fynbos, and the area is known for its honey. Hopefield is located 30 kilometers from Langebaan, 40 kilometers from Saldanha, 45 kilometers from Velddrif and 49 kilometers from Paternoster, making it a great stopover.
Hopefield is a quiet town where you can unwind and relax in peaceful surroundings. The guests enjoy the local market every Saturday (10:00-14:00) where you can buy fresh, organic produce or enjoy a coffee and some breakfast or baked treats under the shady trees. The town boasts a number of coffee and decor shops as well as the famous Simply Bee shop and factory which stocks the purest of honey and natural beeswax skin products. You can also enjoy a massage and other treatments at their salon! Hopefield is well located and a short distance from some of the top West Coast attractions. This includes the picturesque and small fishing village of Paternoster, Riebeeck Kasteel which boasts a number of wine and olive farms, Langebaan for kite-surfing, the scenic West Coast National Park which offers hiking, cycling, secret beaches, bird watching and many more (not to be missed during the flower season!) There are nearby game drives, as well as an array of bird watching in Hopefield. Many other wonderful experiences to be had!
