Buitensorg Farm Cottage
Buitensorg is situated approximately 30km from Robertson and 17km from Bonnievale. These are the two closest towns and you will find a number of well known wine cellars in the area.
You are more than welcome to take a hike in the veld behind the cottage. It is an easy, 20 minute hike to the top of the hill. From here you will have a beautiful view of Boesmansrivier and Breede River Valley.
Night Sky Caravan park is just 2km from Buitensorg and you are more than welcome to do some fishing there. Please arrange with us or the owners before you go. To make this arrangement work, please abide by their rules and respect the facilities, nature and their guests.
Hadeda’s and guiney fowl are very early risers. To encourage them to seek breakfast elsewhere, waving of the arms and loud talking will do the trick.
Unfortunately cell phone reception is not very good in the area. If you walk out of the house to the vineyard you will get some reception.
We request that you use water sparingly. The farm make use of dams, therefor water is very precious here. Without enough water, we will not have vineyards and without the vineyards we will not have enough wine!
Pets are unfortunately not allowed and no smoking in the cottage. PLEASE do not park on the grass – parking under the trees.
We hope you enjoy your stay with us.
