Kuilfontein just oozes charm and eclectic country appeal, especially being a working farm that’s been in the family since 1876! Penny & Leigh invite guests for pre-dinner drinks in the tiny pub, before delicious Karoo lamb in the cosy dining room. No wonder guests return again and again...as friends.

ABOUT Kuilfontein Stable Cottages and The Paddocks @Kuilfontein

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.

"Dear Kirsty, thank you for the booking at Kuilfontein Stable Cottages. Just wanted to let you know that I had a great stay at the above venue. I felt the care, the passion and the heart for their guests from the moment I stepped out of the car (to be completely honest it started even before I got there, as I received a call from the cottages while I was driving in the morning to query whether I wanted supper at night and what my choice of menu would be) to the moment I left. Felt really blessed!! Absolutely loved all their reclaimed spaces as well and the care and simple beauty with which it all has been put together. Kind regards Paola Pontiggia"

To be recommended
04 Apr 2012

"Our short, but pleasant stay at Kuilfontein Stable Cottages is to be recommended. It is easy to find. The rooms are rustic but well appointed giving the feel of Karoo living. Penny is a friendly and hospitable hostess who can discuss almost any subject while having a drink together in their cosy little pub. The chef prepared the traditional South African dishes perfectly. What is a big plus (for some) was a special smoking room detached from the main building, but right next to the pub and enclosed in glass for those who still like a weekly cigar without standing in the rain or on the pavement. In any future pit stop between Jo'burg and Cape Town/Plettenberg Bay, Kuilfontein Stable Cottages will be our choice."

Mike & Margie from Qatar
Wonderful overnight
17 Mar 2012

"We enjoyed our evening with Penny Southey, her daughter and grand daughter at Kuilfontein very much. It was especially kind of them to share their internet connection since we needed to assure our kids back home that all was well with us. The drinks before dinner got us talking with their interesting other guests, and the lamb dinner with all the fixings was delicious. They encouraged us to play some bridge after dinner in their quite charming outside room. Couldn't have had a better stop between Cape Town and Joburg. We also thank you at Portfolio for all your assistance. Warm regards, Martha and Alan McKee"
