|Leave behind the bustle of modern life and join us on 800 hectares of open space and two secluded Cape West Coast cottages. Leave behind the DStv, the radio, even the electricity(!), since these cottages have warm, romantic oil-lamps, cozy fireplaces for winter, and gas-operated fridges, stoves and geysers.
The farm is situated outside the quiet, crime-free country town of Vanrhynsdorp, bounded by mountains to one side, with views out over the quartz plains of the Knersvlakte, and close to the Olifants River wine route. Spring-time brings the fabled wildflowers of Namaqualand whenever precious rains have fallen.
Each cottage has a double bed plus an optional single bed in the lounge. Bathroom with shower. Kitchenette for self-catering. Porch. The hosts also offer bed-and-breakfast as well as other meals by arrangement. These meals can be taken in the main house, or outside in the pub/lapa next to the solar-heated Jacuzzi. There is a private observatory for closer viewing of the magnificent night skies, while daytime adventures can include a carriage ride through the district.
Rates: R150 B&B per person/night; R125 self-catering per person/night;
