This beautiful cottage is set in an elevated position; a small vineyard to the front gives one the sense of being in the winelands while the almond trees and olive grove add to that country feel. The front patio provides the perfect place for sundowners with a view as far as the eye can see..

Darling is a small town in a farming area on the west coast region of the Western Cape, about 75 km from Cape Town.
By the beginning of the 18th century about 29 farmers lived in an area called Groenkloof and on one of these farms, Langfontein, Darling was founded in 1853. It was named after Sir Charles Henry Darling who came in 1851 to the Cape as Lieutenant Governor..
The Darling Museum shows the history of the town and the Darling creamery which was established in 1899 by two Swedish settlers, Nils Georg Moller and G. Threnstrom, and was closed in 1950. The museum also holds a collection of large agricultural machines. Darling is famous for its wildflowers and since 1917 the annual Darling Wildflower show is held by the Darling Wildflower Society, founded in 1915 by Mrs. Suzanne Malan and Mr. Frederick Duckitt of Waylands.
To the side of Vineyard Cottage nestled under the almond trees is an enclosed patio complete with table and chairs for outdoors entertainment. There is a single carport and parking for a further 2 vehicles in the driveway. The cottage is fitted with an alarm system. Pets are welcome by arrangement.
