A quality little Gallery and coffee shop with accommodation situated amongst farms at the foot of the beautiful Swartberg Mountains. It lies on a stunningly beautiful country road between Calitzdorp and Oudtshoorn and is open from 9am to 5pm every day of the week.
You can sit on the sunny stoep while your eyes feast on the view and savour fine coffee or an assortment of teas or sip on homemade lemonade. All the different biscotti, rusks, koeksisters, delicious savoury tarts and chicken pies are homemade and the freshest salad is picked straight from the garden. The surrounding garden is a paradise of plants and flashing birds – a place where heaven begins.
On display in the gallery are deep, meaningful photographs, many in black and white. Beautiful, stylish felted hats, sculptures and uniquely crafted and wonderful cotton baskets form a scattered display. Handcrafted hard wood furniture is made in a ‘to die for’ studio on the premises. A wide variety of postcards of images of the local scenery and people will give you a piece of Kruisrivier to take home with you. Photographer and woodworker Roger Young also hosts photographic workshops here.
Stay over in the romantic, self- catering, bed-sit. Fully equipped kitchen and cosy seating area. Veranda with superb views and accessible garden. A place to find peace. A place to which to return.
As a Bike Friendly Certified venue, Kruisrivier Gallery provides secure bike storage for overnight guests and a range of bike friendly amenities and services (see full list below).
