Charming Mountain Retreat

Situated high up on the mountainside in the beautiful historic Bainskloof Pass, this gloriously rustic and spacious two bedroom cottage, surrounded by breath-taking scenery, indigenous fauna and flora, is waiting to be snapped up.

Part of a stunning 660ha Private Nature Reserve, it’s a comfortable base, in picture-perfect surrounds, from which nature lovers can swim or canoe down the river (about a kilometre below the cottage), cycle and hike in the mountains, explore Rock Art sites, or spend their time identifying around 1300 species of Fynbos and animal spoor!

Or simply relax and rejuvenate body and soul before returning to the hustle and bustle of the City. Or, getaway and stay!

An ideal mountain retreat, only one and a half hours from Cape Town, and a stone’s throw away from a number of top-class Wine Estates for that scrumptious Sunday Lunch!
