The elegantly restored Estate at Au d’Hex hosts a Boutique Manor House, Wedding Venue & Restaurant that lies in the heart of Wellington in the Cape Winelands, just an hour from Cape Town. The converted Cape Dutch homestead, dating back to 1798, is one of Wellington’s most historic locations.

The owners decided to share this piece of history and transformed the glorious building into a distinguished destination. The Estate, which still trades as a working farm, offers guests the opportunity to experience the annual harvest during the summer months. But no matter when you visit, you will appreciate a heavenly experience of superior hospitality together with a slice of heritage in tranquility, exclusivity and comfort.

Au d’Hex Estate is also the quintessential wedding venue, with all the necessary amenities, luxury accommodation, five-star catering and a range of venues from which to choose to celebrate the occasion. We also do conferences, high teas, special birthdays, kitchen teas and bridal showers for groups.

The pride of this historic site is undoubtedly the floating jetty beneath a romantic Bedouin-style tent. The jetty overlooks the Hawequa Mountain range and is the perfect location to celebrate a special event, be it a wedding ceremony, a birthday function, Jazz ensemble, a celebratory dinner or film shoot.

Our restaurant is open Tuesday to Sunday (8:00 to 15:00, Sunday until 14:00) offering gourmet breakfast and lunches with a French Flair in the Boland.

Au d’Hex is an exclusive Estate with a Boutique Manor House and Wedding venue, offering unsurpassed luxury and superior service.
