Bartholomeus Klip lies 2 miles down a gravel road under the magnificent Elandsberg Mountains. A deep verandah surrounds the 19th century four bedroomed house with a separate honeymoon suite, and two more cottages overlooking the bush. There was a warm greeting by identical twins - Louise, who cooks superbly, and Lesley Gillet, and their friendly estate helpers. There is nothing...

It was (only) our second stay here but we thoroughly enjoyed it again ! We write 'only'since most of the guests are frequent visitors and they return every year for a number of days. From the moment you arrive until departure you feel pampered and spoiled. Beautiful surroundings, lovely people, also the guests you meet and the food is excellent....

Spent 4 days in the wild olive cottage with another couple. We absolutely loved the farm, homestead and the incredible food!

We stayed for two glorious nights at this five star farmhouse. The food, service and attention to detail was faultless. The staff were friendly and we wish we could have stayed longer. It was a heavenly, peaceful retreat one which I highly recommend.

Bartholomeusklip must be one of the undiscovered hidden gems of any visit to the Cape.

The twin-sister team of L+L are great. I can't fault them at all. We felt spoiled from the time we arrive to our departure. What an amazing pool, and the sundowners by their private lake are memories we will never forget. We even saw a rather special zebra. Don't let anyone fool you, most zebras are white with black stripes......
