Bartholomeus Klip Farmhouse

Enjoy game viewing and exceptional food at Bartholomeus Klip Farmhouse, on a working farm and fynbos nature reserve near Cape Town and the Winelands


Bartholomeus Fields mountain


Bartholomeus Klip Farmhouse is uniquely – and spectacularly – situated on one of the largest wheat and sheep farms in South Africa’s beautiful Western Cape region.

The Elandskloof Mountains tower behind the farm’s own Nature Reserve, a South African Natural Heritage Site which preserves 4000hectres of the Cape’s famous shrub land vegetation, known as West Coast Renosterveld.

The late Victorian farmhouse has been meticulously restored, and each room professionally and individually decorated with stylish fabrics and family antiques.  The four double rooms have en-suite bathrooms with luxuriously deep ball-and-claw bathtubs, and are supplied with toiletries specially created for Bartholomeus Klip.  A separate suite looks out from its own verandah over the fynbos and up to the mountains.

The warm welcome, friendly service and highly-praised food are part of the Bartholomeus Klip experience, with a team of chefs producing the gourmet meals.  However, self-catering is an option at the recently opened Wild Olive House, sited away from the main house, which has accommodation for groups of friends or families of up to eight.  The house has a leafy outdoor living area, private swimming pool and adjoining cottage, and is bright, charming and elegantly comfortable.


Bartholomeus brunch

Bartholomeus Klip is famous for its food, which is generous, imaginative and mostly made from a variety of local produce. The conservatory is full of morning sunshine at breakfast time, and at night soft candlelight makes a romantic atmosphere for diners enjoying the gourmet evening meal.

A perfect day in the country is rounded off with dinner in the conservatory, where the gourmet meals are matched with the offerings on our carefully-chosen wine list.

Bartholomeus dessert


Guests are taken on game drives twice daily through the reserve to see many different sorts of buck, including eland, springbok and black wildebeest, as well as zebras from the world-famous Quagga Project, and a great variety of wildflowers in the springtime.  The working farm has extensive wheatlands and large flocks of sheep, as well as an impressive 45-strong breeding herd of disease-free Cape buffalo.

Apart from exploring the farm and the reserve, activities at Bartholomeus Klip include guided walks, mountain-biking, bird-watching, windsurfing on the dam, swimming in the salt-water pool with its marvellous views, and peacefully relaxing in the extensive gardens.
