The Merry Widow Country Inn Description
The Merry Widow Country Inn was built in 1880 and restored to its former old world charm. A stylish 3 star Inn for those wanting to escape the fast paced city life. Ideal for honeymooners or a peaceful retreat to reconnect with Nature, for those seeking tranquillity and space to breathe. Centrally situated in the picturesque village of Hopefield in the Western Cape Fynbos region, overlooking the river, the charming buildings of The Merry Widow Country Inn blend in with the lush gardens and wide lawns. We invite you to enter the house with its high ceilings and Oregon pine floors through the lavender hedge and Brookie-laced patio. You will experience a step back in time to the late 1800’s. Our three spacious suites are elegantly furnished with antiques and crisp white linen. Relax, sleep in, and slow down. Watch the stars, listen to the owls and rejuvenate – or for those creative at heart – join one of our many workshops at The Creative Initiative (booking essential) for an absolute unique break-away-experience.
• Hopefield’s annual rainfall averages 260 mm. Due to receiving most of its rainfall during winter it has a Mediterranean climate. The month with the lowest average rainfall recorded is February (2 mm), with the highest being July (50 mm). Average midday temperatures recorded range between 17.1°C in July to 28.3°C in February. The region is the coldest during July when the mercury drops to 7°C on average during the night. Cold and occasional rainy weather during Winter allows for traditional ‘Waterblommetjie Bredie’ (water lily stew) to be enjoyed with freshly baked farm bread, or hearty homemade soups to be enjoyed in front of a cosy fireplace. Sunny days during Winter allow the visitor to experience exquisite scenes of rolling green wheat lands and swollen estuaries. Spring calls for magnificent displays of veld / Fynbos blossoms and flowers, followed in time by bright Canola fields and golden wheat lands, waiting to be harvested. Canoe riders and support team overnight close to Hopefield on Day 3 of the Berg River Canoe Marathon, making Hopefield an ideal option for accommodation.
