Description

The gardens around the hotel declare the property’s long history, too, with trees dating back hundreds of years, while the more recent Rose Gardens formed part of Liz McGrath’s 20-year vision for the hotel. Currently there are more than 2 500 roses in the gardens, with the most recent addition being that of the Relais & Châteaux Rose, named for the 60th anniversary of the collective. Annually the rose beds require about six tons of compost.

These gardens slope up Table Mountain’s side and are spectacular throughout the year, with different blooms revealing themselves across the seasons. The different sections of the gardens display some of Constantia’s best indigenous flora, and guests are encouraged to spend time experiencing an all-encompassing affair with the natural surrounds of The Cellars-Hohenort.

From the fresh, epicurean smells of the Herb Garden through to the cool climate of the Fern Walk, the gardens are immaculately maintained. Different seasons, in turn, reveal the beauty of each garden; from the vibrant greens of the rainy winter season to the colourful blooms in spring, there is always something to see here. Guests may also delight in spotting the resident porcupine and watching the tentative movements of the chameleons, of which there are three colonies at The Cellars-Hohenort.

Other eco-zones within the gardens include the hot garden, the rustic garden and the 950 vines on site. These vines are watered by Mother Nature, and maintained by the garden team at The Cellars-Hohenort.

Tours through the garden can be arranged for guests and visitors.

Monday - Friday: 9am-3pm
