Trinity Lodge is a beautifully renovated Victorian home in the peaceful country town of Darling, only 45 minutes from Cape Town. The Lodge offers seven double en-suite bedrooms, each tastefully furnished with hand embroidered linen and goose-down duvets.<br /><br />We have a restaurant on the historic Grootepost Wine Farm open for lunch from Wednesday to Sunday.<br /><br />Darling itself is a jewel. World famous for its spring flowers, it hosts an annual flower show and houses the largest orchid nursery in the Southern Hemisphere. It is surrounded by magnificent vineyards in and around the Darling Hills producing some of the finest wines in South Africa and there are a number of cellars to visit for tastings. Darling is also a mecca for local artists including Pieter Dirk Uys' famous 'Evita se Perron'.<br /><br />There is a magnificent beach at Yserfontein nearby with stunning sunsets, birding at the nearby West Coast National Park including sightings of the rare Hudsonian and Black-tailed Godwits, Broad-billed Sandpiper and Dunlin. There is also a Fossil Park about 30 km from the Lodge for those interested in ancient environments.
