Dating back to the 1600's

This stunning historical farm dates back to 1692 when Francois du Toit, a French Huguenot, a protestant Christian and refugee, fleeing religious persecution in Europe, was granted ownership of this property. He eventually became the ancestor to the du Toit family in South Africa.

This property also houses a historical significant building, the ‘Gedenkskool’, established In 1881. This independent school was the first ever Afrikaans language school in South Africa and it operated until 1910.

The Du Toit family owned Kleinbosch until 1950, when it was sold out of the Du Toit family. The Smit family owns and runs this beautiful property now and have many plans to restore some neglected parts of the farm to its former glory and to eventually reestablish a small boutique winery on the farm.

We welcome all guests to De Kleijne Bos to experience this stunning historical accommodation establishment steeped in a rich history. We look forward to hosting you.
