Bare Necessities in Suurbraak

PLEASE NOTE:1. Bare Necessities is STICTLY A NATURIST/NUDIST/CLOTHES FREE/FKK ONLY VENUE as from the first of March 2016. Naturist equates to nudist. Our philosophy is naturism and our lifestyle is nudist. We are members of Western Cape Naturist Association (Wcna) and S.A Naturist association (SANNA) which is affiliated to the International Naturist Association (INF)?
2. Camping is R150 per person per night. Bare Necessities is situated on a small dairy farm where we make our own cheese and cater by prior arrangement. We offer two rooms and a small campsite. There are horses on the farm or you can bring your own. Guests are welcome to bring their pets, but initially we will have to introduce them to our dogs. So, yes, we are definitely pet friendly. There is a small swimming pool to keep things cool for those hot summer days. There is a woodfired sauna to be followed by a dip in the pool. Especially healthy in winter !The little village of Suurbraak lies in a fold of the Langeberg Mountains by the incredible Tradouw Pass which features beautiful natural pools. Bare Necessities is 13 km from Suurbraak and 3 km off the N2 on a dirt road, Note that the last 3 kms can be a bit rough if there has been much rain. Nothing that a small car can't handle carefully. The heart of the village of Suurbraak has been preserved, and the buildings that rest on the village square and the two church buildings have been restored. Suurbraak lies in a little piece of heaven, away from commercial centres. People still cook on wood-burning stoves, and use donkey-drawn ploughs and horses to get around. Here you will find real old-style living, untouched by development. Hiking, biking and visiting historical buildings are the main attractions of the town. Swellendam has good shopping and being the third oldest town in S.A. it has a good museum.Other points of interest are the pont at Malgas over the Breede river.Whale watching at Witsand.Bontebok National Park is just down the road. Wine tasting for a day trip in the Bonnievale Ashton area.Little Karoo just over the Tradouws pass.

Reviews for Bare Necessities

"Mening van Bare Necessities"

As mens droom van `n warm en persoonlike ontvangs- is Bare Necessities net die plek. Mens voel dadelik tuis en baie welkom. Dis `n stukkie hemel op `n plaas wat vir jou daardie ontspanning gee waarna mens smag. Dit was `n wonderlike oorbly.

review by Werner Morkel-Brink, South Africa

"Peaceful, rustic and romantic farm stay."

We had such a lovely stay here - Neels and Petra are so friendly and welcomed us with their delicious homemade cheeses and a glass of wine. We stayed in the cosy little Dam Room overlooking the stoep and pool, and enjoyed walking around the farm grounds, taking a drive to the quaint nearby village of Suurbraak and having a delicious fresh juice at Paradise Organic. Our stay also included a delicious, hearty home-made farm breakfast with fresh farm butter, cheeses, jams etc. A restful spot surrounded by picturesque, glowing yellow Canola fields and not too far from Cape Town. Well worth the reasonable pricing - we will definitely be back!
