Make lasting memories - and relax completely - when you break away to our self-catering farm cottages near Ruiterbos, in the Outeniqua Mountains between Mossel Bay and Oudtshoorn.
There’s something special about hidden, secret valleys. A charm, a sense of peace, a connection to nature, a nostalgia - all of which work together as if by magic to leave you feeling rested and restored. And amongst the hidden, secret valleys of this world, few will delight you, few will restore you as much as ours - Leeukloof - where Blommekloof’s twin self-catering farm cottages offer the promise of a relaxing (or exciting!) week or weekend in the country.
Our lovely, historic labourer’s house - which we’ve restored in style. Old Cottage has low ceilings, thick walls, flat roof, huge personality. With three bedrooms and a sleeper couch in the lounge, it sleeps up to 10 people (occasionally more!)
Newly built (2014), modern-with-a- hint-of-old-Cape. Sunflower Cottage has two bedrooms and a huge open-plan lounge and kitchen - and our kiddies' jungle gym's just a hop and skip across the field!
We installed a solar farm, and took Blommekloof off the grid early in 2016. And it's a big solar farm, too - so we've got plenty of power for everyone in all our cottages. It feels great knowing that we aren't spewing any carbon when we use our appliances!
On the farm:
Blommekloof Country Cottages are situated on 16-hectares of agricultural land - but we (Claude and Ali Coetzee) don’t really *farm* here. Well, unless you classify “creating a peaceful haven” as farming... On the farm: Ducks, geese, chickens, cows, calves, sheep, walking, birding, wildlife, three dams (stocked for catch-and-release fishing)...
In the area:
MTB, cycling, riding, motor biking, cheese makers, tea gardens, farm stalls, game reserves, nature reserves, 4x4 routes - and (half an hour’s drive away) Mossel Bay with its beaches, championship golf courses, sailing, adrenalin activities (sandboarding, surfing, tandem skydiving), whale watching, dolphin watching, and cultural attractions (Point of Human Origins Experience, Bartolomeu Dias Museum, art route, etc.).
