About De Kleijne Bos Country House

One of the oldest and most historic homesteads in South Africa. Built in 1692, De Kleijne Bos Country House nestles in the heart of the Drakenstein Valley in the famed winelands region only 3 km from Paarl.

The Old Cape Dutch homestead has been transformed into a 4 Star guest house offering luxurious hospitality for the distinguished visitor, while retaining all the grandeur, style and serenity of an era past in a beautifully scenic setting.

De Kleijne Bos breathes South African history. It is the farm where the GRA (Genootschap vir Regte Afrikaners), the body that took up the cudgels for Afrikaans to be recognized as an independent indigenous language separate from Nederlands (Dutch), was formed on 14 August 1875. It is neighbour to the venue where the first Afrikaans School in South Africa was erected the following year, in 1876.

Apart from its grandeur, history and hospitality there are other commanding reasons to enjoy a stay-over at De Kleijne Bos:

De Kleijne Bos Country House offers a choice of 8 rooms - 7 well-equipped luxury rooms and 1 standard room. All the rooms are part of the original homestead and offer charming accommodation designed with comfort in mind, with services for guests to relax and unwind. All en-suite rooms are individually appointed and have comfortable lush duvets with embroidered percale cotton linen.

There is daily room service, and 24 hour reception and no minimum stay.

Breakfast is served in the dining room or under the pergola in the courtyard (to be arranged with management).

De Kleijne Bos is an operational wine farm offering cabernet, pinotage and chenin blanc. The wine cellars are open to the public. Located close to the award winning wine farms of Nederburg and Diemersfontein, we offer an ideal base to indulge tastes for fine wines and world class cuisine.

De Kleijne Bos offers breathtaking views over the Drakenstein and Du Toitskloof valleys, with walkways and hiking routes in the vicinity for all nature lovers aged 1 to 80. The original old horse stables of more than three centuries ago are currently being transformed into an upmarket French restaurant.
