Sherwood Farm is located in the beautiful and picturesque Elgin Valley, an hour’s drive from Cape Town. Elgin is renowned for it’s excellent apples, and more recently, for the quality of its wines.
The farm is in a convenient and accessible position along the Viljoenshoop Road, 2km from the N2. Peregrine Farmstall is just 5 minutes drive away, Grabouw village a further few minutes, Somerset West with it’s excellent shops and malls and the Strand Beachfront are just 25 minutes drive, and in the other direction, Hermanus is 40 minutes drive away.
The Elgin Valley has become renowned for its mountain-biking and other sporting events, including trail running, triathlons and rowing; these activities bring an influx of visitors to the valley on many weekends during the year, all of which adds to the vibrant and cosmopolitan social life, and business opportunities, which are enjoyed by those living in the valley.
It is the excellent farming, tourism and business opportunities, the beauty and convenient country living, and the central location which have long attracted farm-buyers to Elgin, with small farms in the highest demand as gentleman’s country estates. Many small fruit farms have thus been purchased and upgraded over the years, and provide a cost-effective and most attractive alternative to the more expensive properties located in Constantia, Franschhoek and Stellenbosch.
