Welcome to Assegai Rest
Assegai Rest Farm is situated at the foot of the Langeberg Mountains, in the picturesque Klaasvoogds Valley.
We are only 15 k.m. from the town of Robertson on Route 62, just under 2 hours from Cape Town. With the Robertson Wine Valley as it's backdrop - this small farm is perfectly positioned to be 'away from it all' but close enough for a huge choice of things to do, great restaurants and down to earth wineries.
You can look forward to a relaxing break at Assegai Rest Accommodation - in a private and secluded setting. The farm is owned and run by Jackie and Andre and we look forward to welcoming you and sharing our space and creativity with you.
Assegai Rest farm was named for the Tree, the Curtisia Dentata, commonly known as the Assegai Tree or Cape Lancewood. We are using both names in our accommodations.

We had an absolute ball at the TiPi Lodge. A huge thank you to Andre and Jackie for their hospitality. What a wonderful surprise to find everything so functional, neat and clean. The setting is just amazing and we definitely relaxed and enjoyed ourselves. A very special time for our family to come together and just 'be' in the most natural, peaceful and beautiful setting. We will definitely be visiting Lancewood TiPi Lodge again in the very near future. A truly wonderful holiday, to say the least.

What an awesome weekend breakaway. The place - oh wow what an experience! First time staying in a tipi with an indoor fire pit. All huddled inside at night and the days were perfect 31deg - some food family quality time. Braaied marshmallows, roaring camp fires, soccer and kids exploring.

Baie dankie vir jou gasvryheid en 'attention to detail'. Een van die hootepunte is om in die oggend voor sonopkoms, die gesing van al die voëltjies te hoor.

Thank you so much for an amazingly quiet, restful and wonderful few days at Assegai House. Our family loved the garden, hammocks, the pool and the mountain hike with our sweet Samson.
This is the first time we've taken our dog on holiday, and safe to say he is living his best life out on the farm. We will be sure to come back.

Out of this world experience
What an out-of-this-world experience! My wife and I visited Lancewood TiPi's for our 1st wedding anniversary, and we will for sure be back. The pictures on-line do not do this place justice.
A hidden gem. Thank you for sharing your space with us this week-end.

We had a wonderful experience. We saw a buck that spent quite a lot of time at our camp, and a delightful bird that came to admire itself in the bathroom mirror.
Your place has everything we needed and more. Will definitely be back and recommend to family and friends.
We concluced the cows were 'magic' as they seemed to appear out of nowhere ...
