Oewerzicht Farm Accommodation and Wedding Venue
Oewerzicht cottages and tented accommodation with a popular wedding venue hold pride of place in the rural environment of Greyton, located in the Overberg, about 2 hour’s drive from Cape Town. This quiet town offers excellent opportunities for relaxing alongside the Gobosrivier and on the slopes of the surrounding mountains.
The town is a popular weekend destination for those looking for a charming escape from city life. Many of the original architectural features of Greyton’s past have been immaculately preserved, including fine examples of 17th century buildings and water furrows.
It’s also a popular spot for hiking and birdwatching as well as opportunities for dining on hearty farm fare with a gourmet twist.
Camping’s the perfect way to lap up this pastoral bliss, and Oewerzicht offers abundant opportunities to do this.
