Winter Season in South Africa is unique; we are talking fireplaces, red wines, hearty soups and cozy getaways. One of the places who has earned their snuggle rights for couples, families and big groups alike is Kloofzicht Estate Country Guesthouse in Tulbagh. An absolute must this winter season!
It is situated outside of Tulbagh, around 90min drive from Cape Town. A tranquil valley surrounded by mountains on all sides sets the Kloofzicht Estate scene. This self-catering accommodation is the ideal R&R destination
THE FARMHOUSE sleeps 8-10 peoples and has five large bedrooms, open plan kitchen, a lounge, a spacious dining area downstairs and another lounge upstairs. The farmhouse kitchen has a large fireplace, ideal for those cold winter evenings of sipping on a glass of wine from neighbour Lemberg Wine Estate. What better way to relax after a day of exploring Tulbagh.
The rooms are spacious and have ample cupboard space. Linen and towels are provided as well as bathroom amenities.
The kitchen leads to the outdoor entertainment area which has a 14 seater table and a braai. The show stopper has to be the pool area in the centre of the garden.
This, in turn, overlooks the dams which are excellent for bass fishing and are safe for swimming and rowing. This is perfect for intimate weddings, parties and events. This is where we savoured the sunny day, soaking in nature and her surrounds. The superb views commanded that.
THE LOFT – This is the second self-catering option at Kloofzicht. It is situated above the wine cellar and can accommodate 6-9 people. This unit includes a fully equipped kitchen with open plan lounge, a daybed for an overnight guest and of course a fireplace. You will find another open plan lounge upstairs in the centre with two single beds, ideal for children or additional adults on the opposite side. The king-size bed is screened off from this side for privacy. We absolutely loved the Romeo and Juliet style-balcony that is overlooking the dam and has stunning views of the garden and mountains. A large wraparound deck outside invites you to relax with a sundowner whilst enjoying the sunset. Absolute bliss!
THE COTTAGES are ideal for smaller groups or couples. These two inter-leading, one-bedroom cottages are perfect for a winter getaway. Both are equipped with two daybeds in the open-plan dining area. Then there’s a very well furnished kitchen area and a separate bathroom with shower. Each has its own braai outside and fireplace inside.
The staff at Kloofzicht is very helpful and friendly. It is self-catering accommodation but there are options for those who adore great food and don’t want to cook. Have a look at – THINGS I LOVE in Tulbagh. This is an absolute must, yummy meals made with love. PS: their pancakes are to die for!
We absolutely loved the location, it is peaceful, tranquillity personified. The Danish use the word Hygge, referring to a quality of coziness that engenders a feeling of contentment. Let me tell you, you can find it here!
