Whether you want to get away from the city for a few days or are visiting from not too far away, you will love the beautiful, tranquil surroundings of Blommekloof Cottages. Situated in a small valley in the heart of the Ruiterbos district, these quaint, well equipped and cosy farm cottages with welcoming fireplaces are only 35km from Mossel Bay.
The middle dam is stocked with fish and you are welcome to bring a rod and reel and try your luck! (catch and release only).
There's also a braai area outside, stocked with all the firewood you could hope to burn.
Blommekloof is a picturesque and lush 16ha farm situated along the less-traveled Robinson Pass, with both a lovingly renovated and spacious laborer's cottage, as well as a newly built environmentally friendly cottage.

With the murmurings of the roosting bird life settling in, the hooo-hooo of the night owls, and the gentle croaking of the frogs to welcoming the evening, a relaxing sundowner can be enjoyed around the braai on the cottage stoep.
Traditional farm buildings spread across rolling green hills dotted with arum lilies, amazing bird life, three dams to take a dip in or try your luck at hooking a bass (catch and release). Fresh farm eggs are also available and from time to time fresh milk from Panda and Belle. In season you can pick arum lilies until they are coming out of your ears. If that's not enough, head on over to our friendly neighbours at Leeukloof Cheesery, for some delicious handmade cheeses.
