Bartholomeus Klip is a luxury country hotel on a working farm in the scenic Riebeek Valley outside Cape Town. The carefully restored Victorian farmhouse is surrounded by extensive lawns, oaks and flowerbeds as well as verdant wheat fields, sheep pastures and a nature reserve. Intimate and hospitable, the farmhouse affords 4 beautiful bedrooms and an outside suite with a private verandah. Décor is elegantly classic with tasteful furnishings and Victorian bathrooms. The historical main house is filled with antiques and designer fabrics, the wrap-around verandah providing lovely spaces to unwind while absorbing the tranquillity of the region. Gourmet meals are lovingly presented in the conservatory-style dining room.
Children are welcomed at Wild Olive House (sleeps 6) and Heron House (sleeps 10). These self-catering houses are located in the grounds and are ideal for families and independent folk. They each have a shady terrace with barbecue facilities, a private garden and a private swimming pool.
