Tim Scarborough (who emigrated from Jersey to Cape Town in 1963) his wife Margie and their team, continue to offer their winning blend of hospitality, comfort, character and of course beautiful location. It is only a couple of minutes’ easy walk to the world-renowned Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, but even they have stiff competition from the pretty gardens at Klein Bosheuwel. Mosey down the winding paths that lead through the well-established gardens, overflowing with roses and lemon trees (for G&Ts naturally), to the secluded swimming pool and gape in awe at the mountain. Bedrooms are uncluttered, while large and elegant sitting rooms, libraries, verandahs and terraces provide refuge during every season. Guests are served delicious breakfasts in a welcoming, relaxed environment and there is plenty of advice on hand for explorers looking for restaurants, wine estates, onward accommodation and the many other attractions that the Cape has to offer. Tim and Margie are the glue that sticks Klein Bosheuwel together. Tim delights in overseeing his guests' visits and assisting with their plans and I challenge you to find a more gracious hostess than Margie. The warmth of welcome at Klein Bosheuwel means happy guests (many of whom return year after year) and lasting friendships. One of Tim’s hobbies is vexillology (yes, I had to Google it) so look out for the flag of your home country flying in anticipation of your arrival. Mine was!
