Formerly a magisterial private residence, the Grand Dedale is situated within an award-winning wine estate and boasts magnificent views of the surrounding mountains and vineyards. The small and picturesque town of Wellington is close by and the bustling Cape Town only a 50-minute drive away. Tranquil and calm, this house offers peaceful seclusion and the perfect location for a luxurious South African escape.
Live in luxury
With only six suites available, you are guaranteed excellent quality and five-star service at the Grand Dedale. Each suite is beautifully appointed and features such additional touches as fresh flowers, underfloor heating in the bathrooms, tea and coffee facilities and flat screen TVs. If you’re seeking complete exclusivity, consider opting for the single, 18th-century, thatched cottage which offers the luxuries of a private patio, king-sized bed and mini-bar.
For breakfast, the Grand Dedale serves an impressive range of delicacies, from fresh fruit and croissants to a variety of cooked dishes. The evening meals are equally opulent, with four courses comprising a wealth of authentic flavours made from locally sourced produce, generally preceded by pre-dinner drinks on the veranda or beside the pool. Light lunches and snacks are also available or why not ask for your own specially prepared picnic basket?
You’ll be spoilt for choice for activity options whilst staying at the Grand Dedale. Long, lazy days may be spent soaking up the sun beside the saltwater pool, wandering around the manicured gardens or indulging in one of the pamper treatments available in the wonderful spa room.
For those feeling a little more adventurous, there are numerous trails to explore from simple, riverside strolls to hikes up the Bainskloof Pass. Alternatively, indulge in a wine-tasting session or, a little further afield, why not try your hand at trout fishing, river rafting or quad biking?

We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
Well we are back in the UK after an amazing trip for a very special birthday and must thank Azure in Chester and Jayne O'Gorman for organising everything after we won the auction bid for this trip with SeaDream Yacht Club at Valerie's Summer Ball last year! We had the trip of a lifetime, met amazing people, visited fabulous places and befriended the superb crew aboard SeaDream I. We couldn't fault a single thing onboard - just amazing and hope we can meet the crew again at some future date! I even cried when i had to leave! Well done Azure and Jayne O'Gorman.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
