About Bishops Cove

Bishops Cove is situated on one of the most remarkable coastal sites in the Tsitsikamma area.

Surrounded by miles of pristine and rugged coastline with its own private little beach, guests often comment that it's like having the famous Tsitsikamma Otter trail all to oneself.

Bishops Cove is a small farm with two spacious architect-designed self-catering units accommodating small or large groups of up to 13 guests.

Furnishings are practical and very comfortable, and although accommodation is designed and fully equipped for self-catering, bed and breakfast or a fully-catered option with prior arrangement is available.

Guests can just relax and take in the beautiful natural surroundings and serenity, or they can enjoy an action packed outdoor adventure. Dolphins are an almost daily sight and whales are prolific in the winter months. Mountain bikers can make use of the kilometers of quiet, unpaved rural roads, passing beautiful dams, pastures and plantations. The area is extremely safe with no security concerns.

There are a range of hiking trails to choose from, with the more leisurely trails enabling you to enjoy the magnificent ocean and mountain views. Other trails will take you into the forest or along the rugged and pristine coast where there is a good chance of seeing resident Cape clawless otter and rare Oyster Catcher birds.

Other resident game includes bushbuck, steenbok, aardvark, rock hyrax, monkeys, porcupine, bush pig, caracal lynx and large-spotted genet.

We enjoyed the peaceful surroundings and the view across the valley of the cows on the adjacent farm ..... the quiet and well-equipped cottage. It was just a fantastic two nights we spent there.....

We enjoyed being so close so nature and the privacy was a plus point for us. The view is breathtaking! Neill was a great host. The house is well equipped and that makes your stay effortless.
