A gem of a place with super friendly owners.

We really enjoyed our overnight at this delightful, cosy cottage. It is very comfortable with all amenities provided, including dry firewood and braai grid. We will be back.

Kom rus uit op 'n pragtige Karoo plaas.

Lowergroen grasperke met plaasdiere oral. Verblyf absoluut topklas, aandag aan die fynste detail met heerlike bed vir 'n goeie nagrus.

Beslis die beste vakansieplek is SA.

Die was beslis een van ons lekkerste vakansieplekke ooit. Die Karoo se pragskoonheid. Die vriendelikheid van die eienaars kan mens beslis op geen ander plek kry nie. Die plekkie is so lekker cozy en goed ingerig. Ons stappies deur die veld was heerlik. Sal beslis hulle weer gaan besoek.

It was definitely one of our nicest vacation spots ever. The Karoo's magnificent beauty. The friendliness of the owners can certainly not be found anywhere else. The place is so cozy and well furnished. Our walks through the field were delightful. Will definitely visit them again.

Lieflike, rustige oornagakkommodasie.

Ons was ongelukkig net een aand by Die Skooltjie. Dit is so rustig op die plaas, en die huisie is pragtig en goed toegerus. Die eienaars is ongelooflik gasvry. Ek sal Die Skooltjie enige dag aanbeveel.

Beste plaaskuier.

Die Skooltjie voel soos 'n regte plaashuis met die mooiste detail in elke vetrek. Die kinders kon nie genoeg gekry het van al die plaasdiere nie! Hulle kon regte kinders wees in die modder van die dam. Ons het lekker rondgeloop op die plaas. Die Skooltjie is 'n moet as jy in daardie omgewing is.

Best farm visit.

The Skooltjie feels like a real farmhouse with the most beautiful detail in every room. The kids couldn't get enough of all the farm animals! They could be real children in the mud of the pond. We had a nice walk around the farm. The Skooltjie is a must if you are in that area.

Padkos vir jou siel.

Hier kan jy luister na die gekwetter van die voëls en die geroep van die tortelduifies. Sien hoe die mamma vink vir haar babas kos bring en hulle oopbek skree by die opening van die nessie. Hoe die haan die katjie aanval omdat hy dit binne hulle gebied waag. Die sagte geroep van die angorabokke en met skeertyd hulle angstige geroep terwyl hulle jou skaapagtig aankyk. Die eentonige gedraai van die windpomp in die windjie, wolkies wat saampak en jy hoop en bid saam vir reën. En met sonsopkoms verwelkom jy die nuwe dag met 'n beker stomende moerkoffie en tuisgebakte beskuit. Die skooltjie is alles en meer as wat jy begeer. Silwerskoon, netjies en baie smaakvol. 'n Wens-ek-kan-vir-ewig-hier-bly huisie.

Road food for your soul.

Here you can listen to the chirping of the birds and the call of the turtle doves. See how the mother finch brings food to her babies and screams at the opening of the nest. How the rooster attacks the kitten for venturing into their territory. The soft cry of the angora goats and at shearing time their anxious cry as they look at you sheepishly. The monotonous turning of the windmill in the breeze, little clouds gathering together and you hope and pray together for rain. And at sunrise you welcome the new day with a mug of steaming nut coffee and home-baked biscuits. The little school is everything and more than you desire. Silver clean, neat and very tasteful. A wish-I-could-stay-here-forever cottage.

Karoo-verblyf by Die Skooltjie wat my verbeelding aangryp.

Die skooltjie van 100 jaar gelede is keurig en karaktervol omskep tot 'n lieflike oorslaapplekkie. Nes jy dink jy het nou al die kreatiwiteit waargeneem, sien jy nóg iets raak waaraan jy jou verwonder. Dit was regtig 'n belewenis. Van vars rose in 'n potjie langs die bed, die kaggeltjie in die woonvertrek met meer as genoeg brandhout tot die knus opgemaakte beddens. Alles spreek van 'n liefde en omgee vir die vreemdes wat van tyd tot tyd hulself daar tuismaak.

Karoo accommodation at Die Skooltjie that captures my imagination.

The little school from 100 years ago has been carefully and characterfully transformed into a lovely place to sleep. Just when you think you've seen all the creativity, you notice something else that amazes you. It was really an experience. From fresh roses in a pot next to the bed, the fireplace in the living room with more than enough firewood to the cozy made up beds. Everything speaks of a love and care for the strangers who make themselves at home there from time to time.

'n Absoluut wonderlike verblyfplekkie.

Hierdie karoohuisie het alles wat jy moontlik mag nodig kry, plus al die "magic" wat mens graag wil beleef wanneer jy reis. Tog is daar niks pretensieus nie, alles net egte, aardse and eerlike elemente. So outentiek en mooi; dit was 'n belewenis wat my Karoohart warm laat klop het. Ons beveel hierdie juweel ten sterkste aan.

Sublime peace and tranquillity.

What a little gem, the old house with thick walls, beautiful wooden furniture - all on a farm away from the noise of the N1, and there is air-conditioning. Laetitea and Jos are great hosts, happy to chat and share about the Karoo, and the farm animals are gorgeous. From the geese swimming in the dam to the little lambs and chickens. It was only an overnight stay, but it would be great for a retreat away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Karoo trek ons altyd terug vir ons om weer te besef hoe die liewe Vader als geskep het. Harde wêreld, maar soveel lewe as jy stil staan en 'n bietjie in die diepte kyk. Die Skooltjie vat jou ook weer terug in die verlede. Wens die mure kon praat en stories vertel.

Hartlik ontvang deur die eienaars en heerlik oorgebly in 'n pragtige en gerieflike Karoo-brakdak.

Die plaas is 'n paar kilometer grondpad van die N1 af geleë. Net vêr genoeg om jou te laat voel dat jy op 'n Karooplaas kuier. 'n Ware Karooplaas-ervaring met sterre en stilte wat soms deur die geluide van die plaaslewe en plaasdiere onderbreek word, wat die stilte van die omgewing dan net weer aksentueer. Aanbeveel vir enige liefhebbers van die plaaslewe, die Karoo en die gasvrye mense van die Karoo.

Warmly received by the owners and had a lovely stay in a beautiful and comfortable Karoo pitched roof.

The farm is located a few kilometers off the N1 dirt road. Just far enough to make you feel like you're visiting a Karoo farm. A true Karoo farm experience with stars and silence that is sometimes interrupted by the sounds of farm life and farm animals, which then only accentuates the silence of the surroundings. Recommended for any lovers of farm life, the Karoo and the hospitable people of the Karoo.

Salig, baie netjies en mooi. Hulle het ons dadelik tuis laat voel.

Ons het bietjie laat gearriveer en toe ons daar kom het die kaggel reeds gebrand en ligte was vir ons aangesit. Alles was mooi en netjies. Vars beskuit was verskaf. Verder het ons die lieflike view, lekker stoepie met 'n braai en plaasgeluide in die dag geniet en ook die sterrehemel in die aand was besonders. Kon lekker rondloop en die omgewing geniet.

Wat 'n aangename ervaring. Karoo-gasvryheid op sy beste. Eienaars gaan uit hul pad om gaste welkom en tuis te laat voel. Ouwêteldse sjarme bring weer rus vir die siel. Die kinders het die diere en uitstappie op die perd baie geniet. Sal beslis weer besoek.

What a pleasant experience. Karoo hospitality at its best. Owners go out of their way to make guests feel welcome and at home. Old world charm brings rest to the soul again. The children really enjoyed the animals and the trip on the horse. Will definitely visit again.

Karoogasvryheid en plaasatmosfeer.

Wonderlike en persoonlike gasvryheid. Het so tuis gevoel en heerlik gekuier met beide Lateitia en Josh wat uit hul pad gaan om seker te maak dat gaste gelukkig is. Pragtige ou kothuis, baie mooi en netjies met soveel ekstras. Kuier meer as een aand.

Wonderlike wegbreek na 'n saligheid onbeskryflik met vriendelike gashere.

'n Wonderlike wegbreek vir die moeë siel met pragtige skoon en netjiese geriewe. Die gasvrou en gasheer staan reg om alles perfek te hê vir reisigers wat aankom. Alles is skoon en werk perfek, en die privaat braaigeriewe maak vir 'n wonderlike ontspangeleentheid. Sal graag vir 'n paar dae daar gaan afsaal. Mens moet egter bewus wees daarvan dat die 5 km-grondpad tot op die werf 'n uitdaging kan wees vir laer tipes motors, maar nie heeltemal ontoeganklik nie - ry net stadig en versigtig.

Wonderful getaway to an indescribable bliss with friendly hosts.

A wonderful getaway for the tired soul with beautiful clean and neat amenities. The hostess and host are ready to have everything perfect for travellers arriving. Everything is clean and working perfectly, and the private braai facilities make for a wonderful relaxing event. Would love to go down there for a few days. However, one should be aware that the 5 km gravel road to the site can be a challenge for lower types of cars, but not completely inaccessible - just drive slowly and carefully.

Rus en vrede in die Karoo, met die mooiste sonsopkoms.

Dit was vir ons as 'n vriendegroep 'n wonderlike wegbreek om oor te bly by Die Skooltjie. Die plek is so stukkie hemel op aarde, waar jy die Karoo op sy mooiste sien! Ons was bederf met die mooiste sonsopkoms en het veral die plaaskombuis en die vuurmaakplek geniet terwyl die ganse in die sementdam reg langs ons geswem het. Die enigste teleurstelling was dat ons so gou weer moes totsiens sê. Kan nie wag om weer terug te gaan nie.

Peace and tranquillity in the Karoo, with the most beautiful sunrise.

It was a wonderful getaway for us as a group of friends to stay at Die Skooltjie. The place is such a piece of heaven on earth, where you see the Karoo at its most beautiful! We were spoiled with the most beautiful sunrise and especially enjoyed the farm kitchen and the fire place while the geese in the cement pond swam right next to us. The only disappointment was that we had to say goodbye again so soon. Can't wait to go back again.

Stukkie hemel op aarde!

Sjoe, wat 'n voorreg om by Jos en Laetitia te kon kuier by Die Skooltjie! Dié geboutjie van ouer as 100 jaar is so nice ingerig en mooi gemaak. Heerlike kombuis, sagste beddegoed en handdoeke wat vir dae lank lekker ruik! Die nuwe yster stofie werk soos 'n bom en maak die huisie heerlik warm met sy hout stukkies so groot soos Duplo blokkies! Buite braaikaggel so lekker beskut op die stoepie teen die koue Karoo-wind, met die stok ou peperboom styf teen muur van die ou gebou. En watter 'n lekkerte as 3 Musketiers kom hello sê het: Rosie, die koei'tjie, Klapper die skaap en Kallie die kalf (hans groot gemaak). 'n Móét vir oorslaap, ten minste 3 nagte, op pad Noorde toe. Gaan ry dan 2 dae in die Karoo Park ook rond, want dis net so 21 km weg.

Wow, what a privilege to visit Jos and Laetitia at Die Skooltjie! This building of more than 100 is so well equipped and beautifully made. Lovely kitchen, softest bedding and towels that smell nice for days! The new iron stove works like a bomb and makes the cottage warm with its wooden pieces as big as Duplo cubes! Outside braai fireplace so nicely sheltered on the veranda against the cold Karoo wind, with the old pepper tree tightly against the wall of the old building. And what a pleasure it is that the 3 Musketeers come to say hello: Rosie, the cow, Klapper the sheep and Kallie the calf. A must to sleep over, at least 3 nights, heading north. Then drive around for 2 days in the Karoo Park as it is just 21 km away.

Die Skooltjie is 'n moet om by te bly. Die werf is baie netjies en die huis is ingerig met als wat jy moontlik kan nodig hê, en meer! Elke detail is aan gedink. Met ons aankoms het die houtstofie reeds heerlik gebrand, wat 'n bederf! Ek sal beslis Die Skooltjie aanbeveel vir enigeen, veral as jy kinders het. Die hanskalf het vir ons geselskap gehou terwyl ons buite gebraai het, en daar is verskeie ander plaasdiere reg op jou agterstoep. Ons sal weer gaan kuier!

The male calf kept us company while we were roasting outside, and there are several other farm animals right on your back porch. We will visit again!

Salig in die Karoo!

As jy nie saam met ander mense ingehok wil voel in ‘n gastehuis nie, dan is Die Skooltjie vir jou. Sodra jy die N2 verlaat en die kronkelpaadjie volg begin jou plaaservaring. Die Skooltjie-kothuis is so 100 m vanaf die plaasopstal. Jos en Laetitia ontvang jou hartelik. Die gras voor die huis is so groen soos op die foto, jy wil net plat op jou rug gaan lê en alles inneem. Die binnekant het ‘n lekker rustic gevoel en die dekor is stylvol. Die agterste stoep is ‘n heerlike kuierplek wat braai skreeu met die plaasdam neffens jou. Soos die son sak omvou die Karoo jou in haar sjarme. Die hemelruim is vol van die blinkste sterre en die spektakel geniet jy met die komplimentêre sang van die besies. Soos die son opkom is die tipiese plaasgeluide van wakker word baie gerusstellend. Ek sal maklik in stilte by Die Skooltjie gaan vertoef vir ‘n paar dae en nie net oornag nie. So, pak jou boeke en penne en papier en gaan geniet ‘n skoolervaring soos min.

Bliss in the Karoo!

If you don't want to feel caged in a guest house with other people, then Die Skooltjie is for you. As soon as you leave the N2 and follow the winding path your farm experience begins. The Skooltjie cottage is about 100 m from the farmstead. Jos and Laetitia receive you warmly. The grass in front of the house is as green as in the picture, you just want to lie flat on your back and take it all in. The interior has a nice rustic feel and the decor is stylish. The back porch is a lovely place to visit that screams braai with the farm dam according to you. As the sun sets, the Karoo envelops you in her charm. The sky is full of the brightest stars and you enjoy the spectacle with the complimentary singing of the bugs. As the sun rises, the typical farm sounds of waking up are very reassuring. I would easily stay quietly at Die Skooltjie for a few days and not just overnight. So, pack your books and pens and paper and go enjoy a school experience like few others.

Dit was een van die mees gedenkwaardige plekke wat ek al ooit besoek het. Die gasheer en gasvrou is ongelooflik vriendelik en behulpsaam en sout van die aarde mense. Ligging op die plaas is perfek. Ons as gesin het ongelukkig net een nag hier oornag en ek sal Die Skooltjie enige tyd aanbeveel. Ek sal beslis weer 'n draai maak as ek in die omgewing is. Dankie Jos en Laetitea, hoop om julle gou weer te sien.

Die perfekte oornag stop in die Karoo.

Wat 'n wonderlike tyd het ons nie gehad nie. Die kinders het perd gery, met 'n hanslammer gespeel, ganse gevoer en `n ongelooflike tyd gehad. Jors was die perfekte gasheer. Ons het gebraai onder die sterre, met die geluide van die Karoo om ons. Alles was perfek gewees. Ons sal definitief weer hier bly.

Uitstekende waarde vir geld!

Ons het ons verblyf ontsettend geniet en was eintlik spyt dat dit net vir een nag was. Die geskiedkundige plekkie is uitstekend ingerig, netjies, skoon en alles en nog meer wat jy nodig het. Ons was baie vriendelik ontvang en het baie spesiaal gevoel met al die ekstratjies wat tot ons beskikking was. Die stilte en skoonheid van die omgewing het ons regtig beïndruk. Ons kan eintlik nie wag om weer daar oor te slaap nie.

Ongelooflike positiewe ervaring.

Ek beveel aan dat enige persoon wat van en na die Kaap via Beaufort-Wes reis, by Die Skooltjie moet oorslaap. Dit gaan jou as mens verryk. Meer kan ek nie sê nie. Gaan en gaan kyk self. Jy sal nooit spyt wees nie. En ek het die mooiste foto's van my lewe daar geneem. En as jy van 'n skaaptjoppie hou, koop asseblief so paar by die eienares om die aand daar te braai.

Incredibly positive experience.

I recommend that anyone traveling to and from the Cape via Beaufort West should stay overnight at Die Skooltjie. It will enrich you as a person. I can't say more. Go and see for yourself. You will never regret. And I took the most beautiful pictures of my life there. And if you like a mutton chop, please buy a few from the landlady to grill there that evening.

Absoluut fantasties gewees, die stilte was oorverdowend, net wat ons verlang het.

Dit was 'n wonderlike ondervinding om hier tuis te gaan, die hemelruim was iets om te aanskou en die stilte was slegs onderbreek deur skapies wat blêr, ganse en hoenders, wat 'n fees. Ons het ook die geleentheid gehad om in 'n sementdam te kon swem saam met die visse en die ganse. Die plekke is werlik volledig toegerus vir self catering en om te ontspan. Ek sal beslis weer daar oornag as ek in daardie rigting ry en kan die plekke beslis aanbeveel vir enige persoon wat lief is vir die natuur en van baie stilte hou. Die ontvangs was puik en daar is na al ons behoeftes omgesien. Hoop om julle weer eendag te besoek. Nogmaals baie dankie, julle het absoluut 'n wenner plekkie daar in die Karoo. Sterkte en alles van die beste.

Absolutely fantastic, the silence was deafening, just what we wanted.

It was a wonderful experience to stay there, the skies were something to behold, and the silence was only interrupted by sheep, geese and chickens, which were a feast. We also had the opportunity to swim in a cement dam with the fish and geese. The accommodation is truly fully equipped for self-catering and relaxing. I will definitely stay there again if I drive in that direction and can definitely recommend the places to any person who loves nature and loves it. The reception was excellent and all our needs were taken care of. Hope to visit you again someday. Thank you again, you have absolutely a place in the Karoo. Good luck and all the best.

Fantastiese ondervinding!

'n Wonderlike verblyf op die lang pad tussen die Noorde en die Kaap! Nie net die fantastiese fasiliteite nie, maar ook 'n Karooplaas-ervaring en gasvryheid uit die boonste rakke. Die beskutte braai-area en vuurpit roep vir lang kuiers onder die sterre. Ons sal definitief terug gaan vir 'n vol winterwegbreek om die omgewing en veral die fossiele beter te verken. Ons beveel die Skooltjie sonder enige voorbehoud aan!

Fantastic experience!

A wonderful stay on the long road between the North and the Cape! Not just the fantastic facilities, but also a Karooplaas experience and top notch hospitality. The sheltered braai area and firepit call for long walks under the stars. We will definitely go back for a full winter break to better explore the area and especially the fossils. We recommend the Little School without any reservation!

Hoogs aan te beveel - uiters keurig met wonderlike gasvryheid.

Wonderlike gasvryheid en baie aandag gegee aan klein dingetjies om ons verblyf so gerieflik moontlik te maak. Die heerlike Karoobraaipak is ‘n moet en die rustigheid van ‘n Karooplaas is net wat nodig is na ‘n lang reis!

Highly recommended - extremely refined with wonderful hospitality.

Wonderful hospitality and a lot of attention paid to small things to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The delicious Karoo toast is a must and the tranquility of a Karoo farm is just what is needed after a long journey!

Rustige, veilge omgewing met heerlike braaigeriewe.

Ons het die heerkike gasvryheid van Jos en Laetitea baie geniet. Die kospak met skaaptjops kan ek aanveveel. Tjops het presies die regte hoeveelheid vet. Karoolam bly bo. Hou in gedagte daar is 4 km-grondpad na die verblyf.

Quiet, safe environment with delicious braai facilities.

We really enjoyed the wonderful hospitality of Jos and Laetitea. I can recommend the food pack with lamb chops. Chops have just the right amount of fat. Karoolam stays on top. Keep in mind there is a 4 km dirt road to the accommodation.
