About Papkuilsfontein Guest Farm

Soak up the peace and tranquility of this beautiful farm. Papkuilsfontein Farm, on top of a lovely plateau, nestles between the West Coast and Namaqualand, in the Northern Cape.

In spring, enjoy the world-renowned flowers in this Serengeti of the floral kingdom. Experience the rich bird life, fauna, and San rock art. Swim in the cool waters of a natural rock pool, or in the pool at the cottages, built to be reminiscent of a farm dam. View the awesome canyon and its 100m waterfall. Hike the trails through sandstone rock formations and don't forget to bring your mountain bike.

Accommodation

The Stone Cottages:
Stay in one of three old, beautifully restored stone cottages, in your own private Fynbos setting. All cottages are sensitively restored and furnished in keeping with the rich history of the farm.

De Lande:
De Lande, our guest house situated 9km north of Papkuilsfontein, offers the same AA Highly Recommended award as the Papkuilsfontein cottages. The generous proportions of this typical Karoo style farmhouse accommodates eight people with ease and comfort in four en-suite rooms. Sip your sherry around the fireplace, or enjoy the cool evenings on the stoep, before sitting down to our sumptuous three course dinners.

Jan Voorman's cottage:
Next to De Lande is the delightful Jan Voorman’s cottage, with two en-suite bedrooms, providing simple yet luxurious accommodation while retaining the comfortable 'farmhouse' atmosphere. Dinner and breakfast are served at De Lande house a mere 50 meters away. The kitchen and lounge lead out to the charming and South African 'stoep', the perfect place to savour that early morning cup of coffee in the sun, your eyes scanning the dolorite Koppies on the other side of the river.

Dining

Book your dinner or breakfast in advance, if not self catering. Die Waenhuis Restaurant is also a magnificent venue for small intimate weddings, birthdays, conferences or any celebration of life and love.

the farm

In its 6th generation of Van Wyks, this beautiful conservation orientated farm carries sheep and rooibos, and a dabbling of olive trees for oil and fruit. Nieuwoudtville, the nearest village to the North, is called the bulb capital of the world. Namaqualand, Hantam, Knersvlakte, and Succulent Karoo converge in this area adding to the rich and unique biodiversity.

At Papkuilsfontein, enough has been left alone to give time its depth, and enough restored to ensure that everything's utterly comfortable. It's that sense of balance that makes Papkuilsfontein so beguiling.

Verified reviewexcellent

Our expectations of Papkuilsfontein were far exceeded - and this took a lot since we really liked what we saw on the website. We had a major car problem which Mariette and Alrie went to great pains to solve while we relaxed and enjoyed what the farm has to offer. The rock pools were very welcome on the scorching hot day and the short hike from there to the awesome canyon was well worth it. The evening meal was delicious and plentiful and we felt thoroughly spoiled by the presentation, which required absolutely no effort on our part - just an amble from our couch to the table! We would have loved to stay longer but instead, we will need to reserve that pleasure for a flower season in the not too distant future.

Verified reviewexcellent

I have stayed here many times and it rates as the best family owned establishments I have ever stayed at. The quality of service, food and accommodation is of a very high standard. I do not hesitate to recommend this establishment to anyone wanting a quiet getaway or spending one or two nights passing through.
