Farm House Accommodation
Accommodation at Fonteinplaas is available in the historic farmhouse of Oupa Piet Mostert, Pietjie and Hester Swanepoel, Hendrik se Huisie as well as the newer Kliphuis. Guests will experience the way the Gamkaskloofers lived and will also see the architecture and building methods used in Gamkaskloof since the same materials and building methods were used when restoring the house of Pietjie and Hester Swanepoel, presumed to be the oldest house in Gamkaskloof.
Accommodation is on a dinner, bed & breakfast basis although both houses are fully equipped for self-catering.
There is also the campsite with running water. Three ablution blocks with flush toilets and a hot water shower.
