Buchukloof Cottage

High against the slopes of the Slanghoek Mountains, Buchukloof Cottage offers the perfect private getaway from civilisation. The rugged, though comfortable self-catering cottage is built from local rock. Lanterns and a donkey boiler stoked for hot water, adds to the old-world charm.

Buchukloof Cottage has two rooms, the first with a king-sized bed, while the second has a double and three-quarter bed. The kitchenette has a wood-burning stove and a Cadac one-burner gas stove. The cottage also features a lounge with a fireplace, bathroom and dining area. 

Buchukloof is situated on the Breëland Wine Estate. Mountain streams, hiking trails, unspoilt nature and unobstructed views over the vineyards of the Slanghoek Valley – all of this awaits you at Buchukloof. 

Situated barely 1 hour outside of Cape Town, it is the perfect getaway for nature lovers trying to escape their busy life or for team building weekends. 

Please note that a 4×4 is required to get to the cottage. Transport can be arranged at an additional cost upon arrival. Transport will only drop and collect once during the stay. Please contact us directly if you would like to stay for one night only.
