Bergsicht: Outpost Cottages

  • 2 guests
  • 1 bedroom
  • 1 bathroom

Tucked away on a fruit farm in the Tulbagh Valley, Bergsicht is a magical countryside escape that oozes comfort and rural charm. Surrounded by orchards, with soaring mountain views, the farm is home to a number of appealing self-catering cottages, with the pair of Outpost Cottages the latest arrivals. Just a short drive from Cape Town, Bergsicht has all the makings of a simple yet magical countryside escape – complete with wood-fired hot tubs, sweeping views and a sought-after sense of tranquillity.


The two Outpost Cottages – elevated on stilts and set apart from the farm’s other cottages – offer a sleek, modern, adults-only update on a rural stay. The open-plan design conveys a feeling of both light-filled space and intimacy, with an easy flow from inside to the gorgeous outdoors. They’re furnished in style in a neutral palette, from the leather sofa and patterned rugs on screed floors to the fine linen and kitchen appliances.
