With the first half of the year that slipped by us ever so subtly but ever so fast, we have the school holidays taking place in July. 

July is the ideal month to take some much needed down time to rest and re-charge the batteries.

It is also the ideal opportunity to re-connect with loved ones and spend some quality time together.

Wellington is known to be a town that prides itself in offering authentic Winelands living.

We are the perfect destination for a break away with your family and to enjoy a self-catering farm stay that offers calmness and restfulness.

We have put together a few accommodations options for you to consider. So follow the road less travelled and come and re-charge with your family in the heart of the Winelands!

 

Bartholomeus Klip Farmhouse

Bartholomeus Klip is an exclusive destination in the Cape Winelands and is located on a working sheep and wheat farm at the Elandsberg Nature Reserve. The farm is an easy drive of just over an hour from Cape Town

Families can enjoy privacy in the Wild Olive House & Cottage which is set beneath a spectacular mountain range, and surrounded by well-kept farmland and a 10,000 acre nature reserve.

This self-catering accommodation has proved very popular with groups of friends and families. Children of all ages are welcomed, and the house has its own garden, swimming pool, large shady veranda and outdoor facilities for braaing.

There is a long history of hospitality at Bartholomeus Klip, which shows in the friendly smiles that greet their guests and the relaxed atmosphere of the homestead.
