• Blommekloof, pet-friendly self accommodation in Leeukloof, Outeniqua Mountains, near Mossel Bay

Sunflower Cottage

We built Sunflower Cottage for the planet - and for you. It’s solar powered, eco-friendly, madly comfortable, and fully equipped. You’ll want to stay forever.

Sunflower Cottage was designed to capture the spirit of the Cape, and the energy of the sun. With a large, open-plan living area and a wide, covered patio, it’s a comfortable, practical house where you’ll relax completely.

In short:

  • 2 bedrooms - one with a double bed (you’ll go nuts for the brass headboards), and one with two single beds. (We can also move in a double bed or bunk beds on request.)
  • 1 bathroom with bath and shower.
  • Open-plan living and lounge area with wood-burning fireplace.
  • Fully equipped kitchen and dining area with crockery and cutlery for 4 or more people, and gas-powered stove.
  • Covered patio with braai area.
  • We're off the grid - so no hairdryers, please...
  • Now with free WiFi (Please use it sparingly, though - you're here for a break from all that!)


  • Fresh linen and towels are provided - and we’ll freshen them up if you’re staying longer than a week.
  • We want you to enjoy your privacy, so we don’t provide cleaning services during your stay - but we can arrange them at a fee.


  • Firewood and braai-wood are supplied free of charge.
  • Fresh farm milk and eggs are available on site.
  • We suggest you bring the bulk of your groceries with you, but the Ruiterbos Farm Stall  - 8 km from Blommekloof - carries a range of basic supplies. It’s a general dealer, craft market and restaurant with pizzeria.


  • Well behaved dogs, cats, parrots, goldfish - everyone’s welcome here at Blommekloof, but please contact us before you arrive to discuss your furry friend’s requirements. (And yes, we do have our own farm dogs - two friendly Ridgebacks and a little Jack Russell).
  • Sunflower Cottage is surrounded by a low fence (1.2 metres).
Blommekloof Country Cottages - Sunflower Cottage received a Certificate of Excellence Award for Mossel Bay accommodation.


Please note:

  • Please don't play Goldilocks on the beds - use just the one you need, and keep your pets off the second bed by keeping the door of the second bedroom closed. Best plan would be to bring your animal's own beds with you.
