As one of Walker Bay's most prominent wine and lifestyle estates, Benguela Cove is the epitome of luxury living. The lush farmland was developed to create a vineyard, state of the art winery, lifestyle estate and olive groves in 2003.
Benguela Cove is part of the Benguela Collection of properties, owned and operated by Zimbabwean born, British/South African Entrepreneur Penny Streeter OBE and her family. Benguela Cove is the jewel in the crown of the collection. This unique maritime Walker Bay farm boasts one of the closest vineyards to the sea and the fresh Atlantic Ocean breezes help to produce exceptional fruits which our award-winning winemaker Johann Fourie and his team turn into fine estate wines. Benguela Cove is the largest producer in Walker Bay.
Lakeside Lodge and Spa. A four star luxury boutique hotel and spa in the Garden Route. With the picturesque backdrop of the Swartvlei Lake, it is the ideal tranquil and relaxing getaway.
Experience a winning combination of golf and wine, as the UK’s first golf estate to also feature its own winery – with the aim of becoming the proud producer of sparkling Sussex wine. Guests to the estate can experience wine tasting and pairings from the award-winning wines from Benguela Cove, as well as a South African twist from our dining restaurant and Spike Bar.
The Garden features a kaleidoscope of colour sweeping throughout grounds of the English countryside; with tea rooms, dining facilities and the famous Leonardslee House & Gardens Dolls Museum. The combination of parkland, lawn and forest land inhabits a rare colony of wallabies and a number of deer species who wander semi-freely throughout the estate.
