Our specialty is our breakfast which is served with personal attention, detail and care. In summer, breakfast is served on the deck next to the swimming pool, overlooking the spectacular Swartberg Mountain Range - known as a World Heritage Site. According to one of our guests - "breakfast is not a breakfast, until you've experienced it at Klipheuwel"
Spend summer or winter on the deck in front of the rooms. Sunbath at the swimming pool, relax under the gazebo, snuggle under a blanket in-front of the fire or experience the breathtaking sunsets of the Klein Karoo while enjoying sun-downers.
The farm offers self-guided walking trails through ostrich camps. A guided farm tour can also be arranged by prior arrangement. Klipheuwel is owner managed by Laubscher and Elmarie Coetzee who invite you to enjoy their friendly hospitality.
"What a wonderful stay! This was by far the most amazing bed & breakfast we have been to. The house looks like a mansion from "Gone with the Wind". There are only three guest rooms and yet the pool was very, very large. The view from the veranda is simply grant. The rooms are just wonderful. They are decorated with such charm and every detail is so thought through. The breakfast on the wonderful veranda was amazing. Thank you Frieda for a wonderful stay!"
