Babylonstoren Farm Hotel Activities
Guests enjoy the pure mountain air and feel refreshed and invigorated after taking a walk through the garden at sunrise, or a brisk stroll up Babylonstoren Koppie. As a 240 hectare working farm, Babylonstoren has a natural rhythm ordained by the seasons and guests are encouraged to get stuck into whatever is on the go - grapes being picked, honey being harvested, fruit being packed, wine being made or joining the 250 geese as they are taken out by their herder to "harvest snails". Those with an interest in horticulture or botany should take a private guided tour of the garden. Wi-Fi connectivity and a gym are available for guests needing whatever 'fix' they have. Those seeking to rest will be delighted by their lovely cottage suites with open fireplaces, many books to browse through and verandas from which to watch the farm go by. Or perhaps a cool off in the pool-that-is-a-reservoir or spoil themselves in the spa.
