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.

The farm Voogsekraal is situated on the stunningly beautiful Prince Alfred Pass 11 km south of Avontuur in the Langkloof (long valley) and 60 km north of both Knysna and Plettenberg Bay. The Pass was designed by Sir Thomas Bained and still has the original, hand packed, stone retaining walls.

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.

It is on a working organic cheese farm. Guests are welcome to watch or partake in the daily activities of the farm. 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 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. Situated on a working organic cheese farm.

Everyone is welcome to visit the farming in action – such as watching the goats being milked, or helping bottle-fee the kids, or herding the cows. Children especially, love this. The perfect antedote to polluted city living!

We offer guided walks through the estate, easy or taxing, as you require, where you can experience the peace and harmony of being in nature. Being within easy reach of Knysna and Plettenberg Bay to the south and the Cango Caves and ostrich farms to the north, there are many wonderful places to see, or activities to choose from.

No pets allowed. No smoking indoors.
