Papkuilsfontein Guest Farm
Nieuwoudtville, Hantam Karoo - Accommodation
ESTABLISHMENT OVERVIEW:True beauty doesn't shout nor does it compete and this accommodation in Nieuwoudtville succeeds at staying true to a true, old school farm style essence while retaining an undeniable beauty and charisma. The Papkuilsfontein Guest House may have a complicated name but there is nothing complicated about this traditional farm oasis that is set very close to Nieuwoudtville, a town known as the Bulb capital of the world. A worthy title that stems from the town being known for its highest species of bulbous flowers, all of which are indigenous to the soils of South Africa.
6 is a charm for a Nieuwoudtville guest farm
It's the 6 cottages that echo an old school charm, a charm that is timeless and also grounded. The furniture channels that old school charm and all the amenities complement it elegantly in the fully equipped kitchen that is in each cottage. There are gas lamps, gas geysers and hot water bottles for the winter to complete the ambiance of the place. Lanterns and indoor hearths and duvets soften the place with delicate warmth that can only be found at Papkuilsfontein Guest House.
Natures HD view
For the views, Papkuilsfontein Guest Houses' view is borrowed from Nature's window. A private fynbos view teases the guests into a peak and the Great Canyon created high definition sound with its untamed 100 meter waterfall. The flower conserving Guest farm takes its passion for flowers and nature a step ahead with a natural rock pool by the cottages and the flower spectacle. A rich birdlife is another channel on the HD screening of the Nieuwoudtville bed and breakfast.
Even dinner can be arranged by prior booking at this accommodation in Nieuwoudtville.
Hike the steep trails of the Sand Stone rock formations and explore the thrill of nature drives along the 4x4 trails. A Mountain Bike will also come in handy for those long bike rides in the face of nature.
