Rustenberg Manor House Garden 2023

Friday 3 – Sunday 5 November


This is a large farm garden set in the surrounds of Cape Dutch buildings. It has a spectacular mountain back drop and wonderful views of the surrounding landscape. It is a garden with many mature trees and is essentially ‘English’ in style with a strong focus on heritage roses and perennials. The space is divided into a series of rooms, each with a distinctive planting scheme and character. The Sunken Garden, Vegetable Garden and the Almond Walk are highlights.


This garden is situated adjacent to the Schoongezicht Manor House near the wine tasting centre on the estate. Special features include the 200-year-old pergola running the length of the garden and a Chartres-style labyrinth set amongst the flower borders. The borders are filled with roses, foxgloves and many interesting perennials. It also features a wonderful pond and is divided using hedges and paths. The Simonsberg Mountain and the fields beyond provide the borrowed landscape.
