Traveller's Rest

From R270 PPS



Traveller's Rest Farm is 34 km from Clanwilliam on the Wupperthal road, over the spectacular Pakhuis Pass in an area with ruggedly beautiful landscapes and fascinating rock formations.

Discover a place where you can truly enjoy the wide open spaces, the fascinating and surprisingly varied plant and animal life, the rich legacy of the San, inspiring night skies and so much more.

Traveller's Rest offers 25 cottages in total, spread over a huge area in wide open settings. The cottages are all delightful in their earthy simplicity and surprising in their homely, well-equipped comfort. Interiors are eclectic and colourful with homely furniture, huge fireplaces for cold winter evenings and electric fans for hot weather. All the kitchens are equipped with cutlery and crockery, fridges, two plate stoves, kettles and microwaves. Bed linen and towels are provided and an outdoor braai area (barbecue) completes the picture, for which fire wood can be bought at the Traveller's Rest farm stall. A shared swimming pool near the river and the restaurant brings relief after a hot day spent exploring the farm's hiking and mountain biking trails.

The restaurant is beautifully situated on the banks of the Brandewyn river, built of local stone like the rest of the buildings on the farm. Here Haffie Strauss serves mouth-watering traditional food like eland stew, boboti and Amarula Cake.

The ambience is relaxed and colourful and the interior has been decorated with excellent reproductions, painted by artist Sarah Mackie, of some of the rock art on the farm.

Drinks and a variety of books and souvenirs are also on sale.

Bookings: Please be advised that the restaurant will be open from 08:00 till 18:00. Dinner can be arranged and pre-booked.

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.
