Client Reviews


    We only had time for 1 night (but arrived early and departed late – so maximum value!).
    A truly amazing hotel / lodge in the middle of nowhere – wonderful staff, large rooms, comfortable bed, and an excellent restaurant. We have been before so we knew what to expect – a haven of tranquility.
    Having said that we also went on the evening nature drive: unmissable and fascinating – but a land rover is never tranquil!
    We will definitely return.

  • Fantastic Tranquil Farm stay

    Charming farm stay in Beautiful surroundings, excellent facilities and very welcoming & friendly staff.
    Heron house ( self catering) ticked al the boxes for a totally comfortable relaxing 3 day stay. Although self catering, we ordered some dinner/food/snacks/braai packs from them in advance that was delivered right to our doorstep – warm and very very delicious!

  • Pure delight

    After hiking the first 28km of the Cape Camino the beautiful Bartholomeus Klip Farmhouse arrived at exactly the right time. An oasis of luxury and charm. The warm reception by the staff and the attention to detail in the rooms complimented this unforgettable experience. An delicious dinner was the perfect end to a glorious day.
