EXPLORE Hopefield


Hopefield is situated in the heart of Sandveld and is one of the oldest town on the west coast, it is often compared to towns such as Paternoster, Saldanha and St Helena Bay. Hopefield is becoming a popular weekend getaway spot.

Despite the town's commercial value - it serves as the commercial centre for Voorbaai, the area east of Saldanha Bay - there are guest farms and little cottages just outside town, on the banks of the Berg River that offer visitors places to stay and unwind, particularly during the wild flower season after the winter rains, usually around August, September.  Accommodationn in Hopefield is refreshing and is perfect for a revitalising spring break.

Attractions include the archeological site on the farm Elandsfontein where fossil bones and human artifacts date back to the early Stone Age, the beautiful Hopefield Dutch Reformed Church built in 1879 (the organ still plays on Sundays) and examples of the Hartebeeshuisie or reed house, traditional homes of the area.

But it is the beauty of the Berg River, its accompanying vleis, cracked pans, big sky, veld, fynbos and old buildings that make the place so attractive. That and the fact that the sea is just down the road.
