Woodville Trading Store is situated just outside of Hoekwil on the historic Seven Passes Road, at the turn off to Bergplaas. Wonderful farm stall with interesting nick-knacks and tasty treats! Awesome homemade biscuits, cakes, muffins, koeksisters and a selection of homemade jams. Try their new mixed fruit jam, mulberry and strawberry with a touch of apple- delicious). New stock arrives daily.
The trading store is a family run business and is a great stop over if you are heading out to the Woodville Big Tree. The ‘Big Tree’ is a Yellowwood Tree (Podocarpus falcatus) estimated to be +- 800 years old, a circumference of 12 m and a height of 33 m is a great attraction in Hoekwil, especially for hikers. The trail is a 45 minute walk, a circular trail extending about 2 km through lush indigenous forest which starts and finishes at the old Yellowwood Tree. A clearly marked path leads into the forest, crossing a stream several times. Entrance to the tree is free
