About Nuwerust

Situated a close 20 minutes drive from the walks and climbs of the Maltese Cross, Wolfberg Arch, Stadsaal Caves and Bushman paintings, the start of the Wupperthal 4x4 drive, observatory and the Cederberg Wines Cellars, our farm is ideally located.

Our fully equipped self catering cottages are ideal for the outdoor enthusiast. Each one has its own bathroom and braai area. Heating-fireplaces or oil-burning heaters for those cold winter nights. Bedding on request. Satellite DSTV available at the Lapa for those important sport events.  Communal Lapa with Braai, music and bar facilities.

History: Nuwerust has been in the Esterhuizen family since 1876. Many of the original trees, including a row of pear trees and a 132 year old vine which has the thickest stem in the Clanwilliam district, can still be seen. The farm has buildings of historical significance dating from the late nineteenth century. These include the original mill and the Blacksmith's workshop with a "Blaasbalk" (bellows) still in a perfect working condition.
