Papkuilsfontein Guest Farm in Nieuwoudtville

Papkuilsfontein Guest Farm is a working veld management and flower conservation farm, offering three self-catering cottages.

The three sandstone and thatched cottages are fully equipped, with furnishings maintaining historical charm. Gas lamps and lanterns provide lighting and add to the ambiance of the houses. Gas geysers ensure that guests can still enjoy a luxurious warm bath. The kitchens are fully equipped for those who would like to self cater, and for those who want to be spoiled, a three course dinner is prepared and breakfast is served at the main house. Each cottage has an inside hearth and down duvets. Hot water bottles are provided for the cold winter nights.

The variety of activities include hiking, biking and birdwatching. There are 146 different species of bird in the area. Unspoiled fynbos, the largest range of indigenous bulbous plants in the world, San rock art and breath taking canyons will keep visitors intrigued. A private waterfall and natural rock swimming pool provides entertainment close to the cottages.

After a hot day, experience nature by cooling down in one of the natural rock pools of Papkuilsfontein or opt for the farm dam next to your cottage.

It is one of those truly special places where the right combination of warmth, beauty, homeliness and wild have been achieved. The quality of peace and stillness defies description.

Stunning place to stay. A rustic silence to heal the soul. Take a walk to the canyon. It's absolutely unbelievable. And you'll probably be the only ones there.

Take a drive to the gorge, this is a beautiful farm. If you're camping, the dinner is beautifully packed into a picnic basket, and it tasted great!

I loved this place for its 5 stars and more. It's such a beautiful place of quiet serenity.Situated on a farm outside of niewoudtville..The place has no electricity supply and is powered by solar and gas. It's a little natural paradise of the beaten track.with fresh farm produce,consisting of fresh eggs,milk, butter. You do absolutely nothing. You rest and everything is done for you. Very sofisticated. Every detail was put into place when that chalet was furnished. The staff is wonderful and the good is the best. The scenery is a must to explore. • • • • • • • • • •

Truly one of the greatest accommodation places I've ever had the pleasure of visiting. The food is Devine, rooms luxurious and comfortable and to top it all off lovely staff. I highly recommend a tour of the farm with the old farmer Wilem.

We spent 3 nights at the De Hoop cottage on the Farm at the end of April, and really enjoyed the tranquillity and not having electricity. The cottage is extremely well equipped, it even has a coffee percolator!We had dinner from the farm one evening and it was a really delicious lamb roast with all the trimmings, highly recommend you do this on at least one evening.The hike is really nice, and the scenery is simply amazing.I would recommend you bring a couple of solar lanterns so that you can read at night, and bring plenty of wine! The only issue we had was the mattress was a bit too soft for our liking, but that is a personal preference.

Beautiful place a must to visitJacqui brand

review by Jacqui Brand, South Africa

"One of the best places to stay in SA"

This is an excellent guest farm to visit. Your visit is guaranteed to be relaxing, inspiring and will make you wonder if 'city life' is really more rewarding than the 'country life'. I would recommend staying at least two days. Definitely take your walking shoes and some Karoo lamb chops (available in Clanwilliam). This place is one of the best kept secrets in South Africa.
