Mont Rochelle: Family Time

While the large vineyards and fantastic wine selection are definitely the primary reasons for adult guests to visit Mont Rochelle, we often get asked if there is enough to keep our younger guests entertained. The short answer is yes, so read on for some inspiration for family-friendly activities.

Swimming pool

No matter what age, the heated outdoor pool is the star attraction at Mont Rochelle. Free sun cream and towels are available poolside leaving you extra space in your luggage for more wardrobe options (or perhaps a favourite toy!)

Activities for kids

At Mont Rochelle, there isn’t a set programme of activities for children, but our team are happy to organise tailored activities based on the number and ages of children staying. This could include games of croquet or tennis in the grounds of the estate. We can also recommend a selection of hiking or cycling routes if you’d like to venture further afield.

Once the kids are tired out from a day of running-around, we’ve got plenty of board games and games consoles back at the hotel to keep them entertained.

Dining

We know how challenging it can be to cater for fussy-eaters, so our excellent chefs are happy to prepare special dining options during your stay. Make sure to let our Reservations team know at the time of booking so we can prepare a selection of simple snacks and light meals on arrival. If you have some time during your stay, it’s always a great idea to organise a family picnic in order to really enjoy the beautiful scenery.

Rooms

In both the hotel and Manor House, we have some lovely rooms which are perfectly designed to accommodate kids. In the hotel, we have specific Pinotage and Cap Classique rooms which can fit additional single beds for younger guests to sleep. If you are staying in the Manor House, there is a great bunkroom which can sleep up to four children. Be warned there may be disagreements about who sleeps on the top bunk!
