Nuwedam Guest Cottages are situated on one of the most scenic mountain ranges of the Western Cape, on top of Piekenierskloof Pass, only 160 km from Cape Town.

The three cottages form part of an extensive farm where citrus fruit, grapes, decidious fruit, Rooibos tea and vegetables are produced and livestock is kept.
The cottages are ideally situated for outdoor opportunities like mountain biking, hiking, farm tours, bird watching and fishing and swimming in farm dams.
The cottages can serve as a base from where the area can be explored. The town of Clanwilliam and the wild flowers are a mere 50 km to the north, the Cederberg wilderness area approx. 50 km to the north east and the coast at Lambert's Bay 60 km to the north west.

Some of the walking trails offer unsurpassed views of the valleys on either side of the Piekenierskloof mountain. Visible on to the south on a clear day are Table Mountain and the Swartland, with the Cederberg Mountains to the north and the Atlantic Ocean at Elands Bay to the west. See some of these views in the photo gallery below.

The beautiful swimming pool is at Nuwedam, for guest to use on those glorious hot summer days. Paardekop guests have access to a huge farm dam within walking distance.
