Bartholomeus Klip Guest Farm in the Swartland is never less than magic to visit, and this Christmas will be no exception. The food is extraordinarily good, the accommodation is country-style luxury and the hospitality of the finest to be found anywhere. BK specialises in local craft gins and regional Swartland wines, and their Afternoon Tea is worth the trip alone, with delicious home-baked sweet and savoury treats.

Due to cancellations there are now a few rooms in the main Farmhouse available, so hurry and book for an unforgettable Christmas celebration! Contact Lesley Gillett asap to make your reservation at info@bartholomeusklip.com.

BK are also hosting some spectacular feasts during the festive season, including a Smoke and Fire BBQ Garden Party with Eatsplorer. To read more and make reservations, click here: Eatsplorer Bartholomeus Klip Smoke and Fire BBQ Garden Party 7 December.

Tickets to these special Smoke and Fire events sell out fast, so make sure you book and pay in time! At R750 pp inclusive of all wines and drinks, it’s incredible value for an unique dining experience. The next event is a BBQ style Garden Party with Gil Ferreira from The Flying Pig in Darling, Darling Brew and Wine Kollektive.

Guests and visitors are welcomed to attend the Christmas Eve Dinner or Christmas Day Lunch.

Lesley Gillett sent me the following email about availability over Christmas:

“We have some rooms left in the farmhouse and these are available for the 2 nights of 24 and 25 December 2018. The rate pp includes all meals and activities, including our Christmas Lunch (see below) and use of mountain bikes/canoes and walking and hiking in the reserve. We do our best to give our guests staying a good Christmas atmosphere and time with us, so there is a special Christmas Eve dinner on the 24th and then we are hosting a Christmas lunch on the 25 with all the usual BK meals and activities planned around these additional mealtimes. The accommodation rate is R6300.00 pp per night full board and activities, minimum 2 nights.

We’ll be serving Christmas Day Lunch which non-resident guests can also book for, and our Sunday Lunch offering on the 22nd December is a special Christmas Edition one. The link to the events page with details can be found here Bartholomeus Klip Events
