Discovering Woodstock: A Glimpse into its Rich History
Nestled between the picturesque docks of Table Bay and the gentle slopes of Devil's Peak, Woodstock holds a storied past that has woven itself into the fabric of Cape Town's history. Originally known as Papendorp, the area's legacy was shaped by the establishment of three freehold farms – Zonnebloem, Leliebloem, and Roodebloem – on the slopes of Devil's Peak in 1692.
As time passed and the region flourished, Woodstock, as the area became known in 1867, emerged as a vibrant seaside suburb, with its cottages lining the shoreline and the beach stretching towards the iconic Castle of Good Hope. The echoes of its maritime history resonate through tales of tempestuous storms and captivating shipwrecks along the beach.
We deeply appreciate your ongoing patronage and eagerly anticipate the opportunity to introduce you to the captivating charm of Woodstock!
