Bartholomeus Klip Farmhouse


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.


Bartholomeus Fields mountain


Bartholomeus Klip is an exclusive destination in the Riebeek Valley 25 minutes’ drive from Riebeek Kasteel ,in the Cape Winelands, located on a working sheep and wheat farm at the Elandsberg Nature Reserve.

Discerning travellers will appreciate the peace and quiet in the exclusive five-bedroomed farmhouse, while families with children can enjoy privacy in the Wild Olive House & Cottage.

An easy drive of just over an hour from Cape Town, our romantic and supremely comfortable farmhouse is set beneath a spectacular mountain range, and surrounded by well-kept farmland and a 10,000 acre nature reserve. We offer a range of activities on the farm as well as in the surrounding Cape Winelands and West Coast area …

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 Farmhouse 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.

Guests at Bartholomeus Klip Farmhouse 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.
