Welcome to Bartholomeus Klip
Bartholomeus Klip is an exclusive destination in the Cape Winelands, located on a working farm and game reserve in the Riebeek Valley.
Discerning travellers will appreciate the peace and quiet in the exclusive five-bedroomed farmhouse, while families with children can enjoy privacy in the Wild Olive House.
There is a long history of hospitality at Bartholomeus Klip, which shows in the relaxed atmosphere of the homestead. You are welcome to make the house your own, perhaps in one of the reception rooms where an open fire crackles in the winter months, or on the broad veranda that winds around the house and catches the late afternoon sun.
There are four double rooms with bathrooms in the beautifully furnished farmhouse and one separate suite outside, with its own secluded veranda looking over the veld and up to the mountains.
Nerina Room (double or twin beds) is on the cool side of the house. This en-suite bathroom has a Victorian-style bath with an overhead shower.
Arum Room (double or twin beds), is one of our prettiest rooms. This en-suite bathroom has a Victorian-style bath with an overhead shower.
Agapanthus Room (double or twin beds), is nearest the swimming pool. This en-suite bathroom has a Victorian-style bath with an overhead shower.
The Disa Room, with its king-sized bed, has French doors opening onto the veranda. This en-suite bathroom has a shower fitted in the Victorian-style bath.
The Orchid Suite has a king-sized bed and its own veranda. This en-suite bathroom is fitted with a Victorian-style bath and basin and has a large walk-in shower and separate toilet.
There are many different things to do at Bartholomeus Klip, although plenty of our guests love to spend their time with us just switching off. However, if you want to do something more strenuous, we provide mountain bikes for cycling through the reserve or along the farm roads through the wheatfields, and there are plenty of wonderful routes to choose for walks. We also offer archery, canoes and kayaks, or you can go windsurfing, freshwater fishing or bird watching.
Even the most relaxed guest will want to join our rangers on the morning and evening nature drives through the reserve, where there is always something different to discover.
