At the foot of the majestic Langeberg Mountains, in a pristine and unspoilt kloof, lies Buitenstekloof Mountain Cottages, a jewel in nature's crown. If ever you needed a place to unwind, to enjoy friendship and fellowship, to recapture that unique and much needed sense of peace and harmony, you have come to the right place.

Sheltered and secluded in the picturesque kloof, the eco-friendly and fully equipped units feature gas appliances, fridges, stoves, hot water and LED lights, for a serene, carbon-free, romantic, off-grid atmosphere. More than 100 different bird species, small game and mountain tortoises can be viewed, where guests are able to rest, relax, hike, climb, swim, or just lose themselves in the wonder of nature or in a good book.

Buitenstekloof Mountain Cottages offers Pomegranate Homestead, Aloe Cottage, and three other separate, private and secluded self-catering cottages in the kloof, each private and with its own breathtaking views. All the cottages are fully equipped with quality linen and towels, and elegantly furnished each with its own flavour and style, with large verandahs and indoor fireplaces, as well as outdoor barbecue facilities. Although secluded, the cottages are within walking distance from one another and are therefore also ideal for separate families and friends wanting to enjoy a weekend or holiday together. Buitenstekloof Mountain Cottages also offers various activities on and around the farm.

"The farm is advertised as rustic and secluded and it delivers so much more. We chose the Witkruis Cottage and we got more than we expected. The kitchen had all the basics we needed. We had our own fridge in the room which wasnt advertised and it was simple enough to follow the instructions for the solar power. The views of the mountain were amazing. We had a three year old daughter with so we decided to check out the mountain pool and dam for a little swim. It was quiet disappointing to drive back without swimming because the mountain pool looks like nothing on the pics. It actually looks dangerous and the water doesnt look natural. The dam isnt maintained and it would look fantastic if it was.Buitenskloof is really a nice secluded place and the fact that it doesnt have network is a bonus but maintenance of the dam and mountain pool is needed."
"The view of the mountains and the animals roaming freely."

"The finishing of the cottages needs some work. The floor could do with some covering. The shower water turns cold and takes forever to heat up and the mountain pool is not well maintained. Also need urgent fumigation. The kitchen also had a permanent gas smell. The spiders are invading the space and the flies and bugs were all over the place."

"Ek is baie teleurgestel in my ervaring by Buitenstekloof Cottages. Eestens is dit nie nastenby dieselfde wat geadverteer word nie. Geen nabye winkel asook geen aktiwiteite om te doen. Ek wil nie eens praat van die bobejane wat ons kuier ondraaglik gemaak het nie , en dit sonder dat enigeen dit vir ons voor was. Die feit dat daar geen cellphone opvangs is maak dit soveel erger asook geen sekuriteit indien iets gebeur. Nooit weer sal ek daar tuis gaan - nie my geld werd"

"Had an amazing time with my wife. The setting is beautiful and tranquil. Really a good way to get away from the city hustle and bustle. Best way to recharge your batteries."
"Not as depicted"

"The anticipation we felt was dashed when we arrived to what was a very dingy ummaintained cottage. The setting amidst trees and mountains is beautiful but there is a conspicuous lack of care. We had half a toilet roll to share between three, no soap, a teaspoon of hand wash and in the kitchen hardly any wash up liquid, no condiments or enough glasses. We were unable to make contact; due to its isolation there is no cell coverage, all the more reason to ensure guests are serviced properly. The beds were comfortable and warm but the pillows had no slips! It also has a specifically Christian ethos and not a broader spiritual one which should be noted."
"Great weekend breakaway"

"Baboon's rest is a pleasant cottage, nestled among the trees. The hike to the waterfall is really special, with an incredible variety of vegetation. We also enjoyed the wine tasting that is included in the normal tariff."
"Lovely hide-out!"

"We had a lovely stay! Didn't even miss not having electricity or cell reception (and i'm a yuppy!) After the weekend I'm contemplating installing a fireplace in my house.Only little thing is that the kitchen counters are hard to clean as it is a bit extra rustic. I'd suggest painting it with a super gloss? (cheaper than tiling, but neater?)Thanks again for a wonderful chill weekend."
