About Bishops Cove Lodge

Bishops Cove’s two comfortable self-catering units are situated on one of the most stunning sites on the beautiful Tsitsikamma coast.

To the south lies the pristine rugged coast with its ever changing ocean; to the east, a dramatic drop into the forested Boschkloof; to the North, a small stream gurgles through a steep valley hidden by its forest canopy; and to the west, a hill covered with fynbos protects the lodge from the occasional passing cold front. All this within a stones throw of the shaded verandas of the lodge.

Tsitsikamma Accommodation

Groups of up to 14 guests can be accommodated in the two self-contained units which have a total of six bedrooms.

The Lodge unit consists of a large open-plan living and dining area with a spacious modern kitchen. The living-room opens up on three sides onto covered veranda’s, each with its own dramatic views. There are four bedrooms in all, two en-suite and two with two separate bathrooms. The two en-suite bedrooms open onto a large covered deck facing the crashing waves.

The Sunbird Cottage has two spacious en-suite bedrooms, and an open plan living area and small kitchen, opening out onto a large covered deck.

ACTIVITIES

Hiking, cycling, birding, swimming, and relaxing are the most popular activities. There are several hiking trails along the shoreline, on the edge of the cliffs, and into the indigenous forests. One may encounter large bushbuck and several other types of antelope, dassies, genet, porcupines, mongoose, and other small game.

On the water’s edge or in the ocean, the Cape clawless otter is still sited fairly regularly. Dolphin are sited close inshore almost on a daily basis whilst whales are common in the winter months. Seals and penguins are occasional visitors to this part of the coast.

The area is unique from a birding perspective due to the presence of birds of the seashore, grassland birds, coastal bush birds, and forest birds - all within one geographical area. Although the coast is rocky and rugged, the lodge overlooks a rare, small, protected beach. Cyclists can make use of the miles of rural, quite, unpaved roads passing beautiful dams, pastures, and plantations.

Wish we had more time to spend at this location just to experience all there is to do, or not do and just relax. Perfect location for a group or extended family. Main house has big kitchen/dining/family room area with table set for more than a dozen. Two rooms in main house, and two rooms in each of the other two houses. Love to sleep with the sound of the waves. Ed and Sally serve up a great meal, and coffee on Ed's deck is not to be missed.
