Purely by chance one Sunday morning we stumbled upon this picnic spot. I am sure most people with agree with me that this is not the most eye catching spot to spend the day, but never the less, it is safe and quiet.
The picnic site is situated in an old disused quarry on the farm, and this makes it very sheltered from the notorious south easter, but the flip side of this is that on those hot sweltering days in summer it feels like you are stuck in an oven. Ensure that you bring your gazebo or umbrella. This is a pity, because we all thought that a few trees would add greatly to the appeal of the place.
One of the worst things of picnicking for me is that often one has to listen to a few car radios competing against each other with their music. I cannot think of anything worse to do on a relaxing Sunday afternoon. Gladly I can say that this was not the case at Hillcrest whilst we were there, and we hope that it stays that way. If you would like to braai, there are three or four braai drums provided, but on a busy day you might have to bring your own.
This is apparently a mountain bikers heaven , so if you are a keen cyclist bring your bike along and test the very popular route on the farm. Other activities include fishing (at an additional fee) and walking on the farm (just not in the harvesting season) and wine tasting.
