Kuilfontein Stable Cottages and Paddocks is a collection of charming farm cottages just 12km from Colesberg. Surrounded by the expansive landscapes of the Karoo, this tranquil getaway is perfect for a peaceful escape or as an ideal stopover if you're travelling between Joburg and Cape Town (the gates of the farm open right onto the N1).
Family owned and run for six generations, the cottages are just the foundation for a warm and personal stay. Custodians Penny Southey and Lexi and Grant Stocks are dedicated hosts who focus on providing personal attention to detail and an atmosphere to match the unique Heritage of the farm, which was formerly used for racehorses.
The Stable Cottages have been converted from elegant old stable quarters into luxurious rooms decorated with family antiques. There are two luxury units, one family suite, and five standard units. Childre six years and older are welcome. The cottages are B&B with the option for dinners by arrangement.
The Paddocks consists of a farmyard barn converted into four family units and provides the perfect self catering stay for families with pets and/or children younger than six. Each unit has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a spacious living room with kitchenette and individual patios with braai facilities. In addition, there is a smaller unit for people on a tighter budget with the same self-catering option.
Your hosts can provide braai packs of meat, charcoal and firelighters as well as delicious home cooked meals (lasagne, bobotie, lamb casserole, chicken pies, quiches etc.) to heat up in the oven. They also provide a fridge stocking service for wine, beer and cooldrinks.
