Skilpadkloof Farm Cottage

From R450 per Unit

Overview

Set in the foothills of the majestic Swartberg range, in the shadow of the legendary Towerkop Peaks are three stylishly renovated, traditional worker's cottages. The fifty-seven hectare farmland is a scenic and tranquil haven for succulent Karoo vegetation and a stroll or hike in any direction will reward the walker with an astonishing diversity of fascinating plantlife unique to the area. A pleasant ten kilometre drive leads to the village of Ladismith where you will find everything you may need - groceries, butchery, chemist, hospital, petrol and bottle store.

Each cottage has a comfortably appointed double bedroom with an en-suite shower room, a fully equipped kitchen and sitting room and a private stoep. Linen, towels, crockery, cutlery and kitchen utensils are provided. Cottages are equipped with a small fridge and stove. A hearty farm breakfast or a scrumptious dinner will be provided with pleasure, by prior arrangement. Alternatively a hamper can be arranged with locally sourced ingredients (eggs, milk, braai meat, salads, vegetables and so on).

Ralph Lawson and Murray Angus-Leppan spent two years renovating and restoring the derelict farmhouse and four dilapidated labourers cottages on fifty-seven hectares of pristine Klein Karoo koppies with breathtaking panoramic views of the Swartberg, Seweweekspoort Peak, and the Rooiberg and Touwsberg in the distance.

The farmland is surrounded by neatly tended vineyards, Orchards and lucerne fields of neighbouring farmers and the homestead looks out on the hills of a private game farm where eland, gemsbok and zebra may be spotted while sipping sundowners on the patio.

NOTE: If a search was made without stipulating the month of occupation the rate shown on the search results page is for the lowest cost month and the least expensive room. Where pricing is "per unit" the Average Price Per Person based on maximum occupancy is used for the price range comparison. A search made for Homes and Villas however will always be based on the full daily rate of the unit irrespective of the number of people the unit sleeps.
