Take a drive out to the Breëriver and discover a modern masterpiece, hidden behind gravel roads and kilometres of vineyards.
Bosjes, located on the R43 between Worcester and Wolseley; opened their restaurant, tea garden and chapel to the public in 2017.
The chapel is so unique, the sheer beauty of its architecture and location will leave you in awe of its surroundings. Surrounded by vineyards; the chapel’s futuristic curved white roof and glass walls makes this masterpiece the focal point of the farm. According to the owners, the chapel was inspired by Psalm 36:7 which reads: “How precious, O God, is Your constant love! We find protection under the shadow of Your wings”.
A walkway across a shallow pond allows for symmetricity which gives the illusion that the building is floating on water. The chapel is used as a wedding venue with its panoramic view of the Breëriver valley.
Adjacent to the chapel you will find the gardens. Wonder around in this relaxing and serene environment which also features water sculptures surrounded with ponds containing colourful water lilies, butterflies and birdlife. From the gardens leads a footpath up a small hill which gives you unsurpassed views of the farm and the open valley.
A evident labyrinth-like features of the garden leads onto the Tea Garden. Situated in a circular open space, containing lush green grass and a pond surrounded by rocks, shrubs and plant life; the tea garden allows for a relaxing afternoon savouring some of the finest cakes and deserts in the area.
