Cypress Cottages is a highly recommended Graaff Reinet Bed & Breakfast providing accommodation in 6 guest rooms for tourists visiting the Karoo Heartland region.

About Cypress Cottages

Both cottages are of beautiful early 1800’s Cape Dutch style and are under-stately decorated with a highly developed sense of taste for the natural and comfortable. The bedrooms display high reed ceilings, solid pine and slate floors, antique chests, fresh flowers and freestanding baths.


Each room comprises of an en-suite bathroom, TV with DStv, air-conditioning, wall heaters, ceiling fans, hairdryers and Wi-Fi. A laundry service and secure, off-road parking is also provided for our guests as well as and honesty bar within each guesthouse. We don’t permit smoking in our cottages; we do however have beautiful gardens where smokers are more than welcome.

Between the two cottages, we offer six rooms. These consist of double bedrooms, twin bedrooms and a family room with a private entrance. Tea and coffee facilities are provided in each house.

Additional Facilities

This child-friendly environment, with large lawns, swings, dollhouses and ducks to feed offer not only a getaway for families, but also an opportunity to relax and refresh. Our gardens are often visited by many bird species as we promote this with bird feeds.

One can escape the heat by splashing in the bore-hole-fed reservoir that has been converted into a swimming pool. The main garden is an extraordinary feature of will and clever engineering: desert transformed into an oasis of lush vegetation despite the difficulties of brackish water.


A freshly made and perfectly wholesome breakfast is laid out in the mornings on the terraces or inside the dining area depending on the guests’ preference. Free-range eggs from the house chickens, succulent figs, peaches, prunes and apricots straight from the orchard are the main feature to this event.

Activities and Things

Graaff-Reinet is a rare gem situated in a horseshoe bend of the Sundays River. This Karoo town is 200 years old, making it the 4th oldest in the country. This makes it rich with both indigenous and settler history.

The Camdeboo National Park is a valued attraction, consisting not only of a game park but also the awe-inspiring Valley of Desolation. All throughout the game park and hiking trails surrounding the Valley, there are picnic spots and great views to be enjoyed.

The Graaff-Reinet Golf Course is located only 5km outside the town itself. This 9-hole golf course has been rated as the best of its kind in South Africa.

Cypress Cottages were a wonderful place to stop over on our trip to the Eastern Cape. Tastefully decorated with a beautiful garden to enjoy and the breakfast was also first class. Ten out of Ten!
