Restio Cottage

Restio Cottage is situated on the Bainskloof Pass and is an eclectically decorated cottage with 2 bedrooms en-suite.

It has a front verandah from where you can gaze at the views of surrounding mountains and stars. Try and spot one of our rescue tortoises which have been released in and around this cottage.

It also has a private and secluded covered patio area at the back with a built in braai where you can eat and drink to your hearts content with friends, family and loved ones.

Cook up a storm, drink, eat and relax or for the more energetic, hike up to Bushman’s Cave and take a shower under the waterfall or do another of the hikes on the Estate. Take or Fauna and Flora booklet with you and try to spot some of the amazing species we are fortunate to have at Bastiaanskloof.

Take a stroll down to the river and have a swim and relax on the grass or deck next to the river.

In Winter, light a roaring fire and read one of the books or magazines in the cottage (one of the owners has a bit of a magazine obsession so plenty of the latest ones around…).

If you are looking for a more affordable option our Restio accommodation is they place to stay. The Restio cottage is situated on the Bainskloof Pass Road but do not let this scare you off. This road is extremely quiet at night and you will still have our 2500 hectare private nature reserve at your disposal to make you feel like you are nestled in your own private haven.

For further things to do at Bastiaanskloof, please refer to our Recreation page and our Catering page.
