Barrydale is situated on the popular tourism route - Route 62. It is my pleasure to welcome you this very special village of Barrydale.. Barrydale has occupied a very special place in the hearts and minds of many people for a long time.
I have precious memories of a Barrydale experience – walking the labyrinth on the farm of the Fraser's- but it has many things to offer like the inspiring Tradouw Pass, or a stroll round the village to see the wonderful gardens, sitting outside at sunset listening to the calls of the Hadeda ibis as they return to their roots, and admiring the view of the surrounding hills – possibly accompanied by a glass of one of the excellent local wines.
As a refuge from our increasingly strident urban life, Barrydale’s peace is bound to restore your spirits like it did mine.

Tradouw pass

    Lovely tips, I have driven through Barrydale many years ago. I bought quail eggs from the Nanaga stall between PE and Kenton, delicious!

    Very nice page Mariana. I like the "Peace Pagoda." On your restaurant tip you say "restaurant and "farm stall" Is a farm stall a place to purchase local fruits and vegetables? Thanks, Kat
