While camping at Elands Bay recently (you can read about it here), we decided to visit Vensterklip Guest Farm which is just about 5km from Elands Bay.
Back in 2016, we have camped here for one night and thought it would be a great idea to re-visit Vensterklip.
Vensterklip Guest Farm & Restaurant is situated on a stretch of water known as Verlorenvlei, which is one of the largest wetlands along the West Coast of South Africa and the only coastal fresh water lake in the country.
We have opted for breakfast at Vensterklip and took many photo’s, while we also visited the ‘Rooi Stoor’ Farm Stall on the premises. (Loosely translated ‘Rooi Stoor’ means Red Barn).
There is a choice of accommodation at Vensterklip, ranging from beautifully restored historic cottages (dating from the early 1800’s), to quaint little cottages, backpackers’ accommodation as well as camping.
If you’re fond of succulents, you will find Vensterklip the perfect place! We have seen so many varieties of succulents and other decorations in the garden … it’s an absolute pleasure to stroll through the garden.
We had only two options for breakfast – an omelette or farm breakfast. We both chosen the farm breakfast with coffee and a latte which we enjoyed … partially thanks to the beautiful views.
After we enjoyed our breakfast, we took a leisurely walk through the garden and were surprised with all the detail.
Here is a series of pictures we took on our walk:
It is such a treat to walk through the Rooi Stoor Farm Stall – it’s packed with farm produce, hand-made articles, arts, preserves, Rooibos tea products, sweets and gifts galore!
We enjoyed our visit at Vensterklip thoroughly! If you’re local and this lovely place is on your road, pop in and enjoy the beauty. You will be surprised at how relaxed you’ll feel after a visit.
