Cleopatra Mountain Farmhouse

Discover Cleopatra Mountain Farmhouse

Found in a valley in the heart of the Drakensberg Mountains, Cleopatra Mountain Farmhouse is a charming country escape, providing warm friendly service and a beautiful backdrop.

The 11 rooms all possess distinctive characters and interesting interiors. The rooms overlook the mountain scenery and a private dam, echoing the property's rich history, with the original farmhouse, dating back to the early 1900s, forming three of the rooms. One of the highlights of a stay at Cleopatra is the scrumptious dinners, which come in 7 courses with a running commentary from owner Richard. Ingredients are freshly picked and locally sourced making for delicious diners complimented by a wonderful selection of fine wines from the property's underground cellar.
