About Bartholomeus Klip Farmhouse

Bartholomeus Klip is unique. There are only five bedrooms in this small hotel, the original homestead on a large private estate which is both a working wheat and sheep farm and a nature reserve with a spectacular mountain backdrop. Here, in this unexplored region only an hour by car from Cape Town's international airport, you can feel part of the peaceful life of rural South Africa and its clean crisp air and star-filled night skies.

The Victorian homestead has been meticulously renovated, and the fine fabrics and family antiques make you feel as if you are a guest in someone's much-loved home. Comfort is the keynote in the bedrooms: specially made pure cotton bedding, luxurious toiletries, towelling gowns. No TVs to spoil the country feeling (although there are two in the main rooms for essential viewing).

Wild Olive House and its adjoining cottage, separately sited from the main Farmhouse, provide a self- catering option where children are welcome. The Cottage has a bedroom, bathroom and small sitting room, with mini-fridge and facilities for making tea or coffee. You can watch the setting sun turn the mountains pink from your own private deck.

The food is prepared in the French tradition but with a local flavour, is one of the highlights of a stay at Bartholomeus Klip.

                  Outstanding in every way. I loved the heavenly landscape, peaceful atmosphere, lush garden and majestic trees surrounding the lovingly restored romantic Victorian farmhouse. The service was impeccable; genteel & friendly. Wining & dining was a serious affair - I'm still salivating! The guided game drives were interesting & unusual - we were lucky to see rare geometric tortoises. Another highlight was the resonant calls and sight of numerous blue cranes circling us as they flew down to their overnight spot. Tips: see amazing flowers in springtime; get married at the boathouse; take timeout to...

                  My stay at this extraordinary collector's item of the Good Cooks and their Country Houses was incredible to say the least: from the glass of welcome bubbly on arrival to the intriguing fynbos game drives, from the Norwegian salmon to my high tea on a silver tray, from the starched white linen to the lavender on my pillow, from the refreshing swim in the crisp morning air to the thick bathrobe on my skin. I will definitely be back with my 5-year old, as the kids' cooking activities, bicycles and walks in the nature reserve will definitely be a hit with my girl!
