Edwardian-style cottage in the tranquil shade of a 100 year old oak and with delightful views of the main house, an impressive Ostrich Palace constructed in 1914. This totally private cottage consists of 2 ensuite bedrooms.

Le logement

Doornkraal Kothuis (Cottage) is a totally private, self-contained house comprising of 2 suites with adjoining bathrooms – one with a romantic 4-poster bed, the other with a three quater and a single bed. Specially chosen family antiques and eclectic artwork add further charm and unique style. Well equipped kitchen and outside BBQ area with spellbinding views across the sweeping valley and hills. Discover everyday life on a Klein Karoo farm with its many activities or simply relax and unwind, perhaps with a glass of wine from the farm winery..? Secluded yet at the same time an ideal base from where to explore surrounding areas including the famous Swartberg Pass, Meiringspoort (a natural gorge with spectacular rock formations), Oudtshoorn with tourist attractions for all ages (Cango Caves, ostrich farms etc) and the picturesque Prince Albert, a Victorian village nestled between the mountains and the vast plains of the Great Karoo. An easy and scenic drive of no more than 2 hours to the Garden Route and its stunning beaches and George international airport. Birdlife and botanical delights are plentiful and special. Baviaanskloof is about 1 hour away.

Accès des voyageurs

Guests are warmly welcomed to experience all facets of Doornkraal, a traditional and fully functional Klein Karoo farm. Scenic walks amongst the fields and hills, cycling on footpaths or farm roads and excursions on our Cape Riding Horses, direct descendants of the noble horses featured in South Africa’s epic history, are a few favourite and fully-inclusive activities.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

No day is the same on this working farm where you are invited to join in on daily, seasonal activities including sheep herding, feeding the animals – with fresh eggs for breakfast as reward - harvesting (and tasting!) of crops from the farm and kitchen garden, planting and irrigating with fresh mountain water… Or simply observe from a distance but keep your camera or sketchbook close! Breakfast is homegrown and freshly prepared every morning and served in the cottage.

Nous avons eu un fantastique séjour à Dornkraal Kothuis! Celia et sa famille sont adorables et on s'est vraiment senti comme à la maison! La région est magnifique et les paysages depuis la ferme sont superbes. Le cottage est simple mais tout à fait charmant et avec tout ce qu'on a besoin. Nos filles étaient tellement heureuses de courir partout en toute liberté et de vivre une vraie vie de ferme. Elles ont pu nourrir les agneaux, monter à cheval.... Tous les matins, on nous apportait un pain encore tout chaud ou des scones maison. Et dans notre frigo, il y avait à l'arrivée de délicieuses confitures maison, du beurre et du lait frais... En résumé, une super adresse à recommander à ceux qui veulent découvrir le Petit Karoo. On espère y retourner très vite!

The cottage is a lovely house in a wonderful farm, just a few km away from de Rust. Celia will make the impossible to satisfy all your needs and she is such a lovely person. Our children enjoyed the farm life, feeding the baby sheep, playing with the dogs and going on horse rides. The Braai is always ready and you will find the ultimate luxury watching the wonderful Karoo sky while enjoying a glass of locally made Muskatel! A highly recommendable place!

Dieses Haus und Celia waren unser absoluter Höhepunkt unserer Südafrikareise! Celia ist eine Frohnatur der besonderen Art und hat uns jederzeit beratend zur Seite gestanden. Morgens wurden wir mit einem leckeren Frühstück überrascht und die Kinder durften mit Celia reiten- ein absolutes Highlight! Das Haus ist wir eine Reise in die Vergangenheit und absolut geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Wir würden jederzeit wieder kommen und dann auf jeden Fall länger bleiben. Danke Celia für alles!!!!

Fantastic baked scones or cinnamon rolls for breakfast. There was a pool too which was an added bonus. Celia was a great host. Only one negative - we hadn't realised that there was no wifi.

We took a long weekend road trip through the Small Karoo recently. We loved every minute of our 3 night stay on the farm! It turned out to be so much more that just a place to stay. Doornkraal is beautiful and the surrounding area so peaceful. We slept like logs in the quaint, well equipped cottage. We took a tour of the farm and Celia had great recommendations of places to visit in the area. My favorite thing was the horse riding, finished off with sundowners and snacks (including delicious homemade hummus!) on a hill overlooking the picturesque farm and surrounding area. Celia is a great host who treated us to the most lovely home baked breakfasts and a scrumptious alfresco dinner. I can’t wait to go back!

Five generations of our le Roux family have been the proud custodians of Doornkraal, a working farm in the Klein Karoo. Every day is an adventure and worth celebrating with our home-grown produce of fine food and wonderful wine. We are privileged to inhabit a truly special part of our diverse country and the tangible tranquility and feeling of safety is always of great comfort. Days are filled with farming with wine, sheep, horses, cattle, vegetable seed, lucerne and the freshest air whilst languid nights are hauntingly beautiful with the brightest twinkling stars so close you can hear them. We have no televisions and you are invited to make use of our library or bring a kindle. Wifi is limited at times so earn a well-deserved break from technology and fill your days with the good life.
We look forward to welcome you as our guests and cannot wait to share our remarkable land with you.
