Keurkloof Cottage

Location: Near Matjiesfontein, 40km from Laingsburg: GPS 33º10’33.5″S / 20º25’85.9″E

Keurkloof is a working Karoo farm near Matjiesfontein, just over 2 hours drive from Cape Town along the N1. The quaint guest cottage on the farm offers secluded self-catering farm accommodation at its absolute soul-soothing best.

Set in the vast, inspiring Karoo landscape, the self-catering cottage is far from the nearest neighbours and therefore completely private.

The rustic appearance of the cottage, built in the typical Karoo style, belies the well-appointed and tastefully decorated interior.

Experience the boundless canvas of the Karoo sky, drink in the healing silence and smell the distinctive scent of the endemic shrubs.

Watch out for small game and bountiful bird life, swim in the farm dam, take long walks and toast the breathtaking sight of a glorious sunset.

Pets are welcome by prior arrangement and you are welcome to bring your own horses for a memorable getaway.

The farm has a registered landing strip for small aircraft.

The incredible space and vast expanse of the Karoo landscape is, in itself, a very special experience.Rolling hills are framed by distant blue mountains and the views are unrestrained as far as the eye can see. Experience the drama of light and shadow as clouds build over the earth, smell the fragrance of the Karoo vegetation as night falls and bask in the silence of a crisp starry sky.

Keurkloof is the ideal place to really get away from it all. The solitude and tranquillity are a gift to your soul.
