Bartholomeus Klip lies 2 miles down a gravel road under the magnificent Elandsberg Mountains. A deep verandah surrounds the 19th century four bedroomed house with a separate honeymoon suite, and two more cottages overlooking the bush. There was a warm greeting by identical twins - Louise, who cooks superbly, and Lesley Gillet, and their friendly estate helpers. There is nothing...

It was (only) our second stay here but we thoroughly enjoyed it again ! We write 'only'since most of the guests are frequent visitors and they return every year for a number of days. From the moment you arrive until departure you feel pampered and spoiled. Beautiful surroundings, lovely people, also the guests you meet and the food is excellent....

We stayed for two glorious nights at this five star farmhouse. The food, service and attention to detail was faultless. The staff were friendly and we wish we could have stayed longer. It was a heavenly, peaceful retreat one which I highly recommend.
