Spent 4 days in the wild olive cottage with another couple. We absolutely loved the farm, homestead and the incredible food! This is a fine tuned establishment where everyone who works there is happy and relaxed. The Swartland is mesmerisingly beautiful and the game drive was one of the highlights of our stay. We cannot praise the whole ambience of...

We stayed for two glorious nights at this five star farmhouse. The food, service and attention to detail was faultless. The staff were friendly and we wish we could have stayed longer. It was a heavenly, peaceful retreat one which I highly recommend.

Bartholomeusklip must be one of the undiscovered hidden gems of any visit to the Cape. My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary here and this peaceful working farm and reserve with tastefully decorated rooms and cottages, was a great treat! We both grew up on farms and appreciated the fantastic swimming pool which is basically a converted farm dam,...

The twin-sister team of L+L are great. I can't fault them at all. We felt spoiled from the time we arrive to our departure. What an amazing pool, and the sundowners by their private lake are memories we will never forget. We even saw a rather special zebra. Don't let anyone fool you, most zebras are white with black stripes......

What a treat - the most amazing experience - the food, staff and the farm are wonderful. Thank you Lesley and your team. The Olive Cottage was the perfect location for us as a family.
