Hangklip Mountain Cottage in Pringle Bay

Hangklip Mountain Cottage sits perched on a mountain, nestled amongst fynbos with magnificent ocean views. This quaint three-bedroom cottage is the perfect escape for guests to unwind, relax, and recharge in a pristine natural environment. Watch as the sun sets on the uninterrupted horizon and as the lighthouse stands vigil over the night.

During the 2nd world war these buildings on the mountain were constructed by the government as a radar station. They played an important role in allocating ships and submarines. Over time they were left abandoned and eventually converted into a holiday retreat.

The cottage consists of an open-plan kitchen and lounge area. The lounge includes couches and dining table, with large windows over looking the coast. The fully-equipped kitchenette has the essentials for all your self-catering needs.

There are three bedrooms. The two double rooms have uninterrupted views over the ocean . The third bedroom has a 3/4 bed as well as a 3/4 bunk bed. This room have views on the mountain. All rooms have bedside tables and reading lamps.
The rustic bathroom has a shower over bath, a basin, and a toilet.
Step outside and embrace the morning with a hot water outdoor shower, or simply rinse off after a fun afternoon at the beach.

There is a large outdoor, built-in braai area from where the ever-changing ocean can be observed. This place is ideal for people who want to experience something unique. One of the most pristine beaches can be accessed just down the road for swimming and walks. The cottage is only 5 km from Pringle Bay town center, close enough for dining and essential grocery shopping.

Please note the drive up to the cottage is VERY STEEP AND VERY BUMPY, vehicles with high-ground clearance are recommended.
No pets allowed unfortunately.

Reviews for Hangklip Mountain Cottage

"Endless views and stars"

We really enjoyed our stay at Hangklip Mountain Cottage. This place is an ideal get-away close to Cape Town. The location of the cottage allows for great views of the lighthouse, and since it's behind the Hangklip it get's quite dark at night allowing for great views of the stars.

The rooms, kitchen and bathroom are neat and new, and the lounge is equipped with a fireplace. There is also an outdoor braai area and sitting area, all with great views.

"A little slice of tucked away heaven"

The best thing about Hangklip cottages is you have the whole mountain side to yourself.
Tucked up against the mountain with superb views of the gorgeous beach and bays, a path out the back door leading to the top of the mountain and fitted with everything you could need - this cottage really was a little slice of heaven.

Perfect to stay in with a fire and red wine on a cold night or sit out on the verandah and gaze at the endless stars at the outside fire place in summer.

Just an hours drive from CT - it felt like a real break. We'll definitely be going here again.

Nico was SUPER helpful, friendly and efficient.
