The Retreat Farm Guest House is situated on Piket-bo-berg, approximately 150 km outside of Cape Town, Western Cape. The self-catering farm house is tucked away on a small almond farm which is part of a large fruit farming business. The Piketberg mountain range has a Cape fynbos climate with numerous plant and insect species unique to the area. The guest house is ideal for those seeking relaxation and privacy.

The Retreat Farm Guest House is a four-bedroom self-catering house that sleeps up to eight guests, making it ideal for larger groups of families or friends. The guest house contains two double rooms and two twin rooms, of which one double and one twin are en-suite. There are two bathrooms with showers and toilets, and one full bathroom. All linen and bath towels are provided.

The large kitchen is fully equipped for self-catering with all amenities and utensils. The lounge has a TV and a Queen Ann stove for cosy winter evenings. DStv can be activated upon request.

Wood is available from the local community and the first bundle is provided.

There are numerous activities such as fynbos walks, mountain biking, bass fishing, kayaking and swimming. There is a large dam situated 500 m down the valley. We have a small rowing boat and two kayaks with which to explore and have fun. While great for swimming, there is also cliff jumping from the island in the middle. For the fishing enthusiast, the dam has been stocked with small mouth bass.

A farmers market is held on the last Saturday of the month on the farm next to Retreat. The local farmers and community sell their fresh produce and crafts. It is an enjoyable gathering of the country folk.

A neighboring farm offers horse riding with organized out-rides and day trips through the farms and orchards in the surrounding area.

We have numerous fynbos species endemic to the area, some listed by Kirstenbosch Gardens as endangered. Retreat Farm has a wide range of bird and animal life - birders don’t forget your binoculars. We are busy building a list of birds spotted on the mountain. Many species of buck are seen in the orchards and in the fynbos. We have recently seen a caracal wild cat close to the retreat house and the elusive Cape mountain leopard has been sighted in the area.

    Piketberg South Africa

    Piketberg  Accommodation

    Piketberg, formerly known as Piquetberg, is a small town part of the Swartland district stretching from Malmesbury, over Riebeeck Valley, to Piketberg. ‘Piquet’ stems from the French word meaning military post and is said to have come about from the Dutch-Khoikhoi clash in 1673.

    The town is about 50 km from the Cape’s West Coast and lies at the foot of the Piketberg Mountain. It is a short hour and 15 minutes’ drive from Cape Town, ideal for a weekend breakaway.

    The history of the town dates back to 1836 when Sir Benjamin D’Urban gave the Grotefontein Farm to the church council. The museum is a great place to learn about the town’s history with interesting articles, archives and an exhibition telling the story of the growth of Piketberg and its involvement in the Anglo Boer War. One of the few canons during this war was placed on top of the mountain to warn the farmers and community.

    The Dutch Reformed Church is a focal point in the town and many ‘out-of-towner’ weddings are held here. The church was designed by Carl Otto Hager with neo-Gothic white steeples. The church is well worth a quick stop-and-look.

    Piketberg extends to the top of the Piketberg Mountain, or Piket-Bo-Berg, with its landscape of farms, flowers and fascinating rock formations. Take a trip up Versveld Pass to experience the overwhelming scent of flowers during spring and summer.

    The Piketberg mountain hosts activities such as horse riding, hiking and mountain biking. Horse riding excursions can be arranged with the farm Excelsior, ranging from two hours to eight days. These trips can lead all the way down to the West Coast. Hikes are found on the farms Excelsior and Pheasant’s Nest. The eager hiker can try hiking trails starting at 3 km. These lead through indigenous fynbos, rock formations and sometimes the odd cave. A mountain biking trail of 8 km through field flowers is located on Pheasant’s Nest Farm.

    The Piket-Bo-Berg MTB Challenge is held yearly in Piketberg and courses of 50 km, 21 km and 9 km can be entered from www.pedalpower.org.za.

    Piketberg has an annual Agricultural and Flower Show towards the end of August which is one of the main events of the town.

    After an active day outdoors, take this Swartland ‘dorpie’ by the horns and make a turn by the Nederberg Hotel Bar for a chat with some of the locals.
