A Victorian farmstead on its own 10,000 acre private nature reserve, and at the same time a working wheat and sheep farm, all near to Cape Town and the winelands of the Western Cape.
The Edwardian farmhouse has four bedrooms and one suite, and there is also a separate house - with four bedrooms and its own swimming pool - that is ideal for self-catering families or groups of friends. The staff are charming and the food excellent.
Away from the main accommodation, there is a deckhouse by a dammed lake which is an ideal place to relax, fish for trout or even windsurf. Evening sundowners are served on the dam.
This is very much a working farm, with wheat, oats, canola and clover pastures grown on the estate around the farm. There is always something going on, so children and adults alike can learn the basics of farming when not exploring Cape Town and the winelands.
- Bartholomeus Klip is still a working farm, home to 4,000 merino sheep kept primarily for their wool, which is sold at auction in Cape Town.
