Take the R44 out of Stellenbosch following signs for Somerset West/Strand. Just after Audacia, which is on the left hand side, turn right onto the Lynedoch/Annandale Road. If you drive past the Mooiberge Strawberry Farm stall (which is on the R44) you have gone too far and have missed the Annandale Road turnoff.
Keep on the Annandale Road until you reach the traffic lights at the Baden Powell Drive intersection. Turn left onto the Baden Powell Drive - R310. Continue for 4 kms. Our turnoff is on the left side just before a large dam; look out for an avenue of trees. If you drive past the large dam with a windmill in it, you have gone too far.
