Simonskloof Mountain Retreat


Three secluded farm cottages with 360° view of fynbos and karoo

Rustic, down to earth yet cosy self-catering cottages in the Koo valley at the Western end of the Langeberg, untouched by electricity, cell-phone and Wifi connectivity.

Faraway & Orange Cottages sleep 4 each, two bedrooms with a cosy lounge and kitchen space.
Eric’s Place sleeps 6 in 3 bedrooms, a spacious lounge and dining room.
The veranda’s have hammocks and amazing views of Simonskloof (-valley).

All units are off-grid and fully equipped with all the essentials, solar lighting and heated water, gas for cooking and refrigeration.
The bathrooms have inside showers and for the romantic, an outside bathtub surrounded by karoo bush and a starry night sky.
Traditional Dover wood stoves and a Queen Ann fire place in Eric’s for those chilly winter nights inside and a pit braai in front of the veranda with an exceptional view...

Activities range from hiking, kloofing and abseiling to mountain biking, cooling off in the little rock pools and birding.
Alternatively, there’s camping too – basic, private and uncrowded.

Simonskloof is off-grid, solar powered & eco-friendly - sustainable living at its best.
