The village of Barrydale is surrounded by historic fruit-filled orchards, rows of olive trees and several vineyards, sheep, and dairy farms. Sip some wine, taste the olives, enjoy the Friday and Saturday farmers market, and make sure you go for a milkshake with a difference at Diesel & Crème Diner, a vintage restaurant that offering a unique dining experience.

Ronnies Shop, a famous pub to visit and close by to the Warmwaterberg Hot Mineral Springs Spa, both a short car journey away, the latter an ideal place to relax the day in especially during the colder winter months. Several hiking paths are available in and around the valley of Barrydale and can be started easily from the hotel.
