In choosing to stay at either The Pottery, Helderfontein House or Clouds End Kaya self catering cottages on Clouds End Farm, you will discover a valley in the Western Cape, which is matchless in its beauty and uniqueness. The cottages are situated 11 kms outside the seaside town of Hermanus, the famous whale-watching capital of the world.
Clouds End is an award winning, family owned, working fruit farm in the fertile Hemel en Aarde Valley which is surrounded by some of the most dramatic mountains and home to some of South Africa's finest wine and fruit farms.
The name Clouds End is derived from the sight of a single wisp of cloud that lingers over the tallest peak in the range of mountains called Babaylons Toring - The Tower of Babel.
The cottages are over 100 years old and have been carefully and lovingly renovated, maintaining much of their character, to ensure the modern yet simple comforts.
These Grand Old Ladies are fragile and are situated in an environmentally sensitive area so please treat them with care.
