Kardoesie N7 Countrystop

Kardoesie N7 Countrystop – Citrusdal, Western Cape



Situated along the N7 at the top of Piekenierskloof Pass, Kardoesie has been offering travellers a place to stop over to stretch the legs on a trip or a weekend getaway since 1997.

The countrystop and campsite are on the popular N7 “West Coast Way” just an hour and a half drive from Cape Town. Come pitch your tent, caravan or motorhome and enjoy a breathtaking view of the Renosterhoek Valley, and mesmerising sunsets!

If you are old enough to remember, a ‘Kardoes(ie)’ is the name for the brown paper bag in which groceries would be packed. A kardoesie was also popular among children who would buy handfuls of loose sweets and keep it stashed in a small kardoesie… so when retrieving a sweet from the bag you would get a “lekker” surprise as you never knew which flavour you would grab!

Apart from the farm stall, shop, and restaurant, Kardoesie also offers camping and self-catering accommodation options. Being less than two hours’ drive from Cape Town it is ideal for a weekend breakaway for those who wish to explore the district and to get away from it all.

Facilities include a unique swimming pool with a wooden deck, warm showers, toilets, and a bath for the ladies. Separate power points at each site.

Kardoesie also has a shop, restaurant, fashion shop, a small group conference, and self-catering accommodation. If you are feeling active, head out on the mountain bike tracks through the fynbos and rooibos plantations.

The shop stocks a wide range of home-made fruit preserves, jams, rusks, biscuits and more.

During summer you can sit outside the restaurant (all-day breakfasts and light meals) enjoy a perfect view of “Lappiesland”, and in the cold winter months, the fireplace inside is super cozy.
