About Cloud Cottage

At Cloud Cottage we offer a restful holiday secluded in the Outeniqua Mountains, with soul restoring views, gentle streams, indigenous fynbos vegetation and majestic walks on our family-run organic farm.

Between the arid and scrubby Klein Karoo and the lush, ancient Knysna forests winds the 85km Prince Alfred’s Pass: a narrow, historical dirt road with sheer drops and magnificent views, wending its way between Uniondale and Knysna. Pristine fynbos covered mountains ray out in all directions, creating a microclimate quite different from the neighbouring Klein Karoo desert – and very fertile for farming.

Set at the summit of the pass, lies the family-run farm Voog se Kraal: 35 hectares of ploughed grazing amidst 800 hectares of mountains, fynbos, ravines, gurgling streams, waterfalls and rock pools – the home of Cloud Cottage Cheese.

Self Catering Accommodation

The cottage is tucked into the side of the mountain with panoramic views of the awe-inspiring surroundings. It has two bedrooms which can sleep up to six people, down duvets and cotton linen, and fully equipped open-planned kitchen / dining room, and lounge.

The lifestyle is simple, comfortable and cosy, no television; oil lamps for lighting, hot water and fires to keep the cottage warm in winter.

There is no electricity on Voog se Kraal (apart from small wind and water generators) and farm life follows the rhythm of the sun: early to bed, early to rise. Each simple stone and adobe cottage is warmed in the frosty winters by wood fire and candlelight.

Farming

Organic biodynamic methods have been used to enrich the pastures on which the five Jersey cows and sixty-strong herd of white Saanen goats graze, in their striving to bring “real farming” back into practice – in a modern way. Each goat and cow has its name, and the animals respond to being called by name, in a set routine, into the milking shed twice a day.

This is a family farm where culture, agri-culture, and a hands-on, personal approach intermingle, resulting not only in wholesome and delicious cheeses, but also in an atmosphere which has led many passers-by to comment on the therapeutic quality of this piece of land.

Activities and Attractions

The Drys wish to share this beautiful, health-giving part of the world with others. Guests can look forward to: breathtaking nature, delicious farm-fresh food, hikes and rock-pool swims, a unique and varied farm-yard, music / drama variety evenings, maypole dancing, horse-rides, and friendly and interesting hosts.

There are several beautiful rock pools to swim in and waterfalls to inspire you. Freedom to roam the 800 Ha of fynbos covered mountains and to enjoy the indigenous forest river walks.

An additional attraction of being on Voogsekraal is that one of South Africa's foremost sculptors, Theo Megaw, lives and works here. Guests are welcome to visit his studio.

Impossible to put the magic of Cloud Cottage and its surroundings into words. It is the place you've always dreamed of, but better, because real. A panorama of lush, lumenescent green rolling hills, animals treated with dignity and compassion and given the freedom to roam the mountains, rockpools and waterfalls a short hike away, a cosy, architecturally exquisite cottage as your refuge. The absence of cellphone reception and electricity was the best part for us! Give your soul the ultimate gift and go to Cloud Cottage.

What a gem! Truly a great escape from the hustle and bustle. The cottage is very comfortable and the view is amazing and I can't even begin to describe the stars at night. Remember to bring your own towels and if you are no good at doing dishes with a bar of sunlight soap, some organic dishwashing liquid may be useful.
