Partially built into the hillside, the buildings appear to corkscrew out of the earth, seamlessly absorbed into the surrounding gardens. Also look out for other subtle landscaping and architectural highlights, from the eye-catching curved trellises of oak to the inspired play areas incorporating playful agricultural cues.

Architecture aside, the Bosjes Spens is the latest eatery to open on the estate. Dishing up freshly baked breads, pastries and coffee alongside a menu of lighter café-style fare, it dovetails neatly with the more formal Bosjes Kombuis.
At the Spens, head chef Kim Cox has created almost every plate to be enjoyed either in the café or as an eco-friendly take-away picnic in the gardens. When the weather’s good, a pre-ordered Farm Platter box is a fine way to enjoy lunch in the gardens.
