Pienaarsbaken Farm Cottages

Pienaarsbaken Farm Cottages are situated at the foot of the Lootsberg Pass between Graaff-Reinet and Middelburg in the Eastern Cape. The Loots history goes back to the late 1700’s and accommodation is provided in the 200 year old original farm house. Pienaarsbaken Farm is part of the Mountain Zebra / Camdeboo Protected Area.

Mountain View Cottage

Mountain View Cottage is an addition to our accommodation units. It is a fully equipped self-catering unit, ideal for two people.

  • The indoor and outdoor braai facilities allow flexibility for all weather conditions.
  • Enjoy uninterrupted views of the Sneeuberg mountains while relaxing on the stoep.
  • House-trained pets that sleep in their own beds are welcome by prior arrangements.


Entertain yourself around the indoor braai or relax in the lounge before heading out for a stroll on the many farm roads or simply lounge around at the pool and sit in the shade of the many trees in the garden.


On this farm, you are made aware of the brave spirit of the pioneers that settled here many moons ago. The kilometers of hand-packed stone walls, built by Xhosa migrant workers, reminds one of an era long before modern technology existed.

Pienaarsbaken returns one to a simpler, more fulfilled lifestyle.
