Wow, a truly delicious three course meal. We had a great morning on the reserve and needed the comfort and good food of this great restaurant. I think everyone passing the area should find themselves at this hidden away gem.

Staff, management etc, were excellent. Food very good and ambience excellent. The room was rather small but clean and well serviced. We thoroughly enjoyed the overall experience. We will come again when the weather is somewhat warmer.

We spent four wonderful days in the self catering Wild Olive House near the main Farmhouse. The cottage is spacious and very well equipped. It also has its own swimming pool for warmer weather. We enjoyed cold nights with underfloor heating, electric blankets and warm days walking in the reserve and cycling round the property. This was our second visit... More

I can't rate this incredible place more highly. It's our 3rd time there (over a period of a couple of years) and it's still as good as ever. The venue is a real home from home. The main Manor House rooms are cosy and beautifully furnished and the main Olive house (which can house two families, being child and baby... More

The staff at Bartholomeus Klip showed such incredible generosity towards us. We were continually amazed at the abundance shown in their care of us and our children at Wild Olive. Thank you so much! We will feel honoured to return again.

Oh wow! That really says it all, but I will expand. We went for lunch on Saturday and the experience was delicious, in every sense. You can actually feel the tension leaving you as you drive the dirt road past huge flocks of woolly sheep towards the mountains. The farm and homestead are totally exquisite (next visit needs an extra... More
