The Place is situated at the end of a private road in a beautiful, safe and secluded valley, in the Klein Karoo wilderness between Ladismith and Riversdale.

Accommodation comprises 2 self-catering units, both of which are completely private and free-standing; away from the main house and each other. Each unit boasts a private plunge pool on the patio. Well-behaved pets are welcome by request. Only The Studio has Wi-Fi available.

The Studio boasts spectacular wrap-around views of the Touw River valley, surrounding mountain ranges, and breathtaking sunsets; it is fully equipped and features hot water, electricity, limited free Wi-Fi, a Bluetooth speaker and cellphone reception. The semi-open plan space offers a bedroom with a double bed, a fully equipped kitchen, a raised living area, and a further living-dining area with an open fireplace. The daybeds in the living area double as sleeping for two adults or children, whilst the two smaller sofas can accommodate younger children. The private en-suite bathroom has a hot-water shower and toilet. Glazed patio doors in the bedroom and living areas lead out onto shaded outdoor seating areas and braai facilities, with a private plunge pool. A shaded courtyard garden with beautiful views offers more seating and a hammock. A delicious healthy breakfast can be purchased when available.

Red Rock Cottage is situated at the foot of a beautiful, red, sandstone outcrop. The setting is sheltered and peaceful with views of nothing but acacias, Klein Karoo hills and veld. The cottage comprises 2 spacious bedrooms. Each bedroom has its own separate entrance and an en-suite bathroom that is fitted with a shower. A sofa bench in each room doubles as a single bed for 2 children or adults. The first bedroom also has its own fireplace and a small, private patio with seating.

The open-plan living area comprises a kitchen with gas stove, fridge, and ample storage. The dining area sits adjacent to glass patio doors, opening onto the outdoor living area. In the lounge area, sofa benches may double as single beds for children, while the free-standing fireplace ensures cosy winter nights. Glass patio doors open onto the private, outside space with outdoor furniture, private plunge pool and braai facilities.

The establishment’s famous, freshly baked olive and rosemary bread are always available to order. The area is perfect for exploring on mountain bikes; guests are required to bring their own bicycles and gear. Guests are welcome to explore the amazing variety of landscape features on the farm, including the magical mini-valleys, dry river beds, fossils, and strange succulents that make this landscape so unique.
