About Travellers Rest

Traveller's Rest Farm is 34 km from Clanwilliam on the Wupperthal road, over the spectacular Pakhuis Pass, in an area with ruggedly beautiful landscapes and fascinating rock formations.
Discover a place where you can truly enjoy the wide open spaces, the varied plant and animal life, inspiring night skies, and so much more.

The cottages are all delightful in their earthy simplicity and surprising in their homely, well equipped comfort. Some are renovated labourers’ cottages and others are newly built in the same earthy style with local stone. Interiors are eclectic and colourful with natural reed ceilings, homely furniture and huge fireplaces for cold winter evenings. All the kitchens are equipped with cutlery and crockery, fridges, stoves and microwaves. Bed linen and towels are provided and an outdoor braai area completes the picture, for which firewood can be bought on the farm. A shared swimming pool near the river and restaurant brings relief after a hot day spent exploring the farm's hiking, mountain biking or 4x4 trails.

Traveller's Rest offers 29 cottages in total, spread over a huge area in wide open settings. The cottages are all delightful in their earthy simplicity and surprising in their homely, well-equipped comfort with en-suite bedrooms.
All the cottages have huge fireplaces for cold winter evenings and electric fans for hot weather. All the kitchens are equipped with cutlery and crockery, fridges, two plate stoves, kettles and microwaves.
Bed linen and towels are provided and an outdoor braai area (barbecue) completes the picture. Fire wood can be bought at the Traveller's Rest farm stall.
A shared swimming pool near the river and the restaurant brings relief after a hot day.
