rest & relax

The old sandstone milking parlour was recently converted into four luxurious self-catering units. It has spectacular views of the lavish green gardens and offers hiking trails with breath-taking scenery and views of the valley. It features individual braai's, covered parking and much more!



Goat's cheese. Soft and fresh, aged and stinky, we love them all.  The ancient tradition of making cheese is such a humble and wonderful way of preserving the goodness of milk.  All our cheeses are made with 100% goats milk.

EDIBLE Gardens harvest
17 april 2018

Gardening is of great importance at Baris, The lush green lawns and big trees have been established over the last three decades. Of late, there was an intense desire to expand the old vegetable patch into a spectacular formal edible garden.

Despite the heat, the summer of '18-‘19 produced a significant harvest of fruit and vegetables.  At Baris Monger you can find some of the preserved goodness like tomato chili chutney, gooseberry jam, slow roasted cherry tomatoes and much more.
