If the middle of nowhere was an actual place, it would probably be the Kleindoorn Guest House. Situated 28km outside Barrydale, this farmhouse offers everything a getaway needs… including no TV.



Furthermore, it is situated just outside the Boosmansbos Wilderness. This offers outdoor activities that include mountain biking, hiking trails, and birdwatching opportunities. All while also offering breathtaking views and vistas.


Accommodation at Kleindoorn Guest House



The guest house sleeps up to 10 people but uses its space and resources well to make that possible. It has three bedrooms, two of which have two single beds inside, and a third with a double bed.

The other four sleeping arrangements are made up of two divan beds and a sleeper couch that sleeps two.


To do and experience at Kleindoorn Guest House


There may be no TV, but guests are not completely disconnected. Free and unlimited WiFi ensures that you are always connected, check emails, or watch your favorite show on Netflix (just bring your own device).

There are indoor and outdoor braai facilities. Also, to round it off, it has a thatched veranda stoep where guests can relax and take in the atmosphere.



When you’re done with the internet, just around the corner is Boosmansbos Wilderness, renowned for its exclusive hiking trails. You literally need to book this one in advance since only 12 people are allowed at a time. It’s worth it though when considering the pristine 64km of trails there are to hike.

It’s also a birders paradise, with 200 bird species to look out for. Likewise, during the hike, you may run into a buck, mongoose, genet, and maybe even a leopard (don’t worry, they’re shy).

Accordingly, around Kleindoorns there are opportunities for mountain biking and 4×4 driving. You can also relax in one of the many dams on the farm and, take a dip in rock pools by two waterfalls. No light pollution means that the night sky is perfect for stargazing as well.
