This place is one of a kind, it is the old family home and that is exactly the feel you get when staying there...it's not just another holiday rental but it has charm and a fantastic atmosphere.
There is plenty of space for larger groups, we were only six people but you could easily sleep 12 in the house.
There is a large fully equipped kitchen and the entertainment room (with fireplace) is also a great place for after dinner drinks.
It was awesome to see the horses playing in the morning, and all the other 'wild life' (birds, squirrels, visiting dogs and cats)
Just left Barry House and want to go back! Had such a wonderful weekend here with 10 friends and 3 little kiddies. The house is huge so we all had our own space and it is equipped with anything you may need. Every care was taken by the owners (jugs of water next to the bed, dining room set for dinner, wood in all the fireplaces, etc). Very close to the best wineries and great to braai on the porch, looking at the view of mountains and grazing horses. Highly recommend it for families or a group of friends.
This is the third year running we stayed at Barry House on Riverton near Robertson. It is a great long weekend away spot for our large group of friends and performs as a base to explore the greater Robertson wine area. It is a charming house with a colonial feel of old. Rooms is spacious and well equipped. Every day the house and kitchen was cleaned for a small extra fee and our firewood was replenished. The farm owners are extremely charming and welcoming. We will be back next year again.

We had the great pleasure to stay for the month of January, 2014 at the Berry Homestead. every am and pm,While sitting on the front veranda we thoroughly enjoyed the vista;the horse paddocks,the yineyards,orchards and the mountains in the distance. a tranquil million $ dollar view. Duncan , Natasha Berry and the farm manager Francios were very helpful and excellent hosts,
Thank you so much for the most enjoyable stay. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment from the beauty of the farm .the history of the Berry family to the eclectic mix of the most fabulous literature in the family library. Your entire house was very comfortable and inviting.the living room the entertainment room ,wifi,comfortable cozy beds, etec ,etec.etc.
We would highly recommend the Berry Homestead. If we didn't so far away in North America we would certaintly return for our winter vacations.
