Bartholomeus Klip Sunday Family Lunches

Post date:


From Sunday 25 March till 29 July, you and your beloveds can enjoy a traditional Sunday Lunch feast at Bartholomeus Klip Farmhouse.

Famed near and far for its exceptional cooking, regional wine list and beautiful gardens, this historic guesthouse is the jewel of Swartland country hospitality.

I love me a slap-up tradional Sunday lunch with all the trimmings but it’s Such. Hard. Work. And cleaning up afterwards? Forget about it.

If you love the whole SFL* vibe but can’t stand the schlep, ta-daaa:

Bartholomeus Klip Farmhouse has the solution!

*Sunday Family Lunch, okay?

Children can run around barefoot, playing hide and seek among the giant trees, or paddle kayaks on the dam’s unfiltered mountain water, while you unwind from a week filled with to-do lists and schedules.

Tip: BK stock top craft gins and beers. Don’t be shy. Have that tipple.

Remember to pack your cozzies too, for dips in the main pool on the lawn.

Other than that, let the wonderful chefs of Bartholomeus Klip do the cooking and the serving, while you settle down to a chilled day on an authentic African farm.

BK is near Riebeeck-Kasteel, only an hour’s drive away from Cape Town. Lunch is lovingly prepared with local, seasonal and top-quality produce, at R280 pp (kids under 12 half price).
