Establishment Raptor Rise
Raptor Rise Farm, Twee Jonge Gezellen Road
Description: Self-catering accommodation in a private cottage or converted stables on a working farm 5 minutes from Tulbagh. FARMSTEAD SUITES (No’s 1-5) Below the main farm house a large shed and disused stables have been completely rebuilt to house a 2-bedroomed apartment, 4 en-suite double rooms, reception office, conference venue, gym room and laundry. DOUBLE ROOMS (1-3) What was previously stables have been cleverly converted into 3 air-conditioned, self-catering en-suite king/twin rooms, carefully designed to ensure optimum comfort in a compact space. Each has its own patio and a small Weber braai as well as access to the communal pool for lovers of outdoor living. The kitchenettes are suitable for light catering only and full DSTV is available in the conference room/lounge which is available to all our guests. 2-SLEEPER FLAT (4) The last ex-stable in the row was also the feed room and thus had a bit more ‘elbow room’, enabling conversion into a larger self-catering air-conditioned suite with a queen-size extra-length bed and en-suite bathroom featuring both a shower & bath, kitchenette and covered patio with a small Weber braai. FAMILY UNIT (5) Offering two king/twin bedrooms, both en-suite, with an additional sleeper couch in the lounge, the family apartment has a clean, modern feel. A full kitchen and open plan lounge with fold-out doors open onto a spacious north-facing patio with expansive mountain views. This lovely apartment also features air-conditioning, DSTV, a Weber braai and use of the communal pool. SOUTH WING SUITES (No’s 6 -9) The recently renovated main home on the farm can accommodate an additional 8 - 12 people in 4 self-contained self-catering suites in its south wing. These have been designed to be accessed from the exterior, giving each its own entrance off a private patio with unique views down the valley. All the rooms have all been delightfully decorated, using revamped period (ball & claw/Queen Anne-style) furniture, and feature compact kitchenettes as well as braai facilities. Units 7 and 8 can either be totally private or, for your convenience, linked to form a family unit. QUEEN SUITE (6) This gorgeous open-plan suite features a queen-size extra-length bed, en-suite bathroom with shower only as well as a lounge area with an additional sleeper couch. KING SUITE (7) Suitable for a monarch, this suite offers a king/twin bed facility and the luxurious en-suite bathroom has both shower and bath options. JUNIOR SUITE (8) This slightly smaller, yet very comfortable suite offers king/twin bed options with a shower-only en-suite bathroom. PENTHOUSE SUITE (9) Spoil yourself by luxuriating in a king size bed while gazing out upon the glories of the Tulbagh valley, or enjoying the sunset from your private balcony whilst sipping a glass of 'bubbly' from one of the excellent neighbouring wine estates… This commanding eyrie also features a large walk-in shower in its en-suite bathroom, a kitchenette and an additional sleeper couch. COTTAGE Privately positioned at the foot of the farm, this charming ‘cottage’ accommodates up to 8 guests in two double en-suite rooms plus a loft, which sleeps 4 in single beds with en-suite bathroom and a 'loo with a view'. A fully fitted kitchen plus lounge/dining area with log fireplace and TV are provided. A large covered patio with a Weber braai overlooks a sparkling private pool, beyond which shimmers a panoramic view of the three majestic mountain ranges which enclose the Tulbagh Valley. Conference facilities for up to 25 delegates.
