From R4200 per Unit
Kloofzicht Estate is the first wine estate as you approach the valley from the Nuwekloof Pass (R46) and is about 4km before the picturesque Tulbagh Village.
There are two dams on the farm just a few paces away from the accommodation, that are excellent for bass fishing. The dam with the three islands is safe for swimming or for having fun with the kids in the rowing boat. Stroll down beyond the dams alongside the vineyards to the river winding through the farm. The willow trees around the dams have created a birdwatcher's paradise!
There is an inviting 14m swimming pool next to the main house which may be enjoyed by all guests staying at Kloofzicht Estate. All linen and bath towels are supplied, but please bring extra towels for swimming.
We have three-and-a-half large dogs that may pop over to say hello, so if you are allergic to, or afraid of dogs, then this is not the place for you.
The double storey thatched Main House sleeps 8 to 10 people. It consists of 3 double bedrooms, 2 main ensuite, a large open plan kitchen, lounge and dining area and a guest loo downstairs and then another 2 main en suite bedrooms and a lounge upstairs.
All three bedrooms downstairs have double French doors opening onto verandas and beautiful Gardens. The main bathroom opens onto a secluded courtyard with an outside shower. The main upstairs bedroom has two balconies, each with magnificent views of the mountains over the dam. The white room opens onto a wraparound veranda with stunning views from both the bedroom and the bathroom and has an outside spiral staircase leading down to a courtyard garden. The farmhouse kitchen has a huge fireplace, marble-topped cupboards, dishwasher and a double sized oven.
It leads onto the terraced entertainment area with a 14 seater table and braai and then onto the 14m swimming pool, all only a few meters away from the dam which is excellent for Bass fishing and safe for swimming and rowing.
This area is ideal for small weddings, parties and events.
Kloofzicht Estate is a relaxed base from which to explore historical Tulbagh. Situated as it is in the bowl of so many mountains, Tulbagh is an ideal outdoorsy retreat, offering horse riding, hiking, mountain biking, bass and carp fishing, birding and 4x4 routes, besides wine, that is.
This is known as the secluded valley for good reason as you won't pass through Tulbagh on your way to anywhere. A welcome hiatus and the ideal weekend escape in the Western Cape.
The town itself is bursting with gems and has the highest concentration of national monuments in South Africa. Since the "historic" earthquake of 1969, which damaged many of the old Cape Dutch and Victorian style buildings, restoration has resulted in a quaint village atmosphere drawing adventurous weekenders.
Turn off the main street (which looks like that of any other Boland town) and seek out Church Street, where a plethora of B&B's, restaurants and museums line the old street with its original irrigation sluice.
Our "Things I Love" deli, bakery and restaurant in Tulbagh has moved to the picturesque Tulbagh Village and offers a substantial breakfast, delightful light lunch and early supper menu and a witch's house full of wicked and decadent treats for the sweet tooth. The cellar stocks a wide range of fabulous local wines.
Or simply pack a well equipped picnic basket with scrumptious goodies from the deli and relax under the palm trees in the garden. The Deli is open 7 days a week.
