Springfield Estate rests on the Springfield Farm that has been declared a Provincial Heritage Site, deep within the Agulhas National Park. It is one the southernmost pieces of land on the tip of South Africa. <br /><br />The surrounding area, Cape Agulhas, known as the strandveld or literally sandy land in Afrikaans due to its sandy soils, is rich with never-ending coast lines, mountains covered with Fynbos and Southern African wildlife. <br /><br />The original farm house pre-dates 1889 when the farm was formerly registered. It was the home of Lord de Saumarez, the English lord memorialized in Dalene Matthees novel Driftwood. A collection of three quaint old renovated thatch cottages, which can be rented individually, circle the English baronial hall.
