Fairfield Cottages is set on a 100 ha operational fruit farm against the foot of the Skurweberge Mountains. All the self-catering accommodation options have a breathtaking view of the mountains surrounding Ceres valley. The vine-covered porches provide the ideal place to enjoy sundowners, while watching the mountains basking in the pink afterglow of the sun or see the full moon rise over the mountains. Each season is special on the farm – winter boasts views of snow-capped mountains and crystal clear streams running past the cottages, in spring the orchards in pink and white blossoms are breathtaking – so is the abundant wildflowers, summer is ideal for our numerous activities and autumn turns our special town (a mere 6km away) into a picturesque wonderland.

A tranquil retreat nestled between the Cederberg mountains and overlooking the Ceres valley. A place to reconnect, realign, and rediscover that magic needed to thrive in the hustle of the real world.

I dreamt of returning for seven years, and was not disappointed in revisiting the joy that it brought all those years ago.

A forever escape, an eternal oasis...

Lovely venue, fresh air and good break away! Klipspringer house is spacious enough for 6 people. Well equipped and well kept. Loved the little stream running next to the house and it being pet friendly. My dog had a visit from Bella the friendly farm dog every day and they played up a storm. Felt safe there.

We have used Fairfield Cottages on several occasions now and have never been disappointed. The units have always been clean and everything functional. We particularly enjoy the shower at Klipspringer. The unit is far from any traffic noise yet conveniently close for any shopping. We will return again!

The wide open spaces, the barren beauty and the age old rock formations and starry night skies.

Okay. 3 out of 5
