Skimmelberg Getaway is on a working Rooibos Tea, Buchu and Citrus farm, between Citrusdal and Clanwilliam, about 200 km from Cape Town along the N7. The characterful old house on a beautiful mountain farm is the ideal self-catering getaway.

Buchu and Rooibos Tours available to guests at a reduced rate. Prior booking is essential.

The space
Enjoy hiking, swimming in the farm dam, birdwatching, rock art paintings and long walks on scenic farm roads. The farm itself and wider area is also popular with rock climbers, anglers and mountain bike enthusiasts. The endemic Cape fynbos and various game and bird species also contribute to the experience of being in the wilderness of the Skimmelberg Nature Reserve.

Guest access
Skimmelberg Getaway can accommodate up to 8 people in total and is a lovely getaway for a family or a group of friends, but it is perfectly suitable for a couple as well.
The house is very well equipped for self-catering.

The open plan living/kitchen area has comfortable seating and a lovely fire place. There is a well equipped kitchen with a washing machine as well as a dishwasher and a 8-seater dining room table in the dining room.
There is a separate lounge with a large size television and full DSTV (CABLE). The house has 4 double bedrooms, consisting of 1 x king size bed, 1 x queen size bed, 1 x double bed and 2x single beds. The king size bedroom has a full en-suite and the other three bedrooms share a full bathroom. There is a separate toilet. The rooms all have heaters, hair dryers and bed linen and towels are provided.

The house has an indoor fireplace and braai facilities outside at the back as well as in the front under the trees with a lovely view. Fire wood is for sale on the farm.

A lovely lawn at the back and front for the kids to play and the grown ups to relax.

Other things to note
The farm with its Rooibos Tea plantations, Buchu plantations and Citrus orchards is set on top of a mountain range in the Skimmelberg Nature Reserve. Around you the mountainsides are untouched and indigenous fauna and flora abound, like the Queen Magnifica, small game, many bird species and even the elusive Cape Leopard, which is now a protected species.
Skimmelberg is the ideal place to really get away from it all. The natural beauty and tranquility is truly a gift to your soul.
