Grand Designs / Hg2 MUST-STAY

With grey skies looming above London today, it’s hardly surprising that we’re dreaming of sunnier climes here at Hg2 HQ. Which is why our attention has turned to South Africa, and this beautiful boutique beauty just 45 minutes from Cape Town at the foot of Bainskloof Pass. Styled as a chic country house, the five-star property is perfectly positioned on a wine estate and comes with six extremely well-appointed rooms within the main building and a separate cottage for those needing more privacy. Our favourite place to hunker down is the luxury loft, set beneath a thatched roof and overlooking the Hawequa mountains. The hotel’s other amenities include a 15-metre saltwater swimming pool, spa room and library. The undisputed selling point for us, however, is the large veranda that overlooks the valley; with thoughts of a drizzly London but a distant memory and a glass of full-bodied red in-hand, it just doesn’t get much better.
