Thank you! Had a gorgeous time. Made my Attakwas even better. I cannot stay tonight as well – but will be back soon as always. Take care xxx                                Ansa, January 2012.

Dit was baie lekker, soos altyd. Dankie.                                Wilfred and Elize, January 2012.

Hot! But beautiful and peaceful. Love the views. Lots of wildlife on our walks and rides (mongoose, mice, hare, tortoise, gemsbok, fish, black-backed jackal and lots of birds). Oh and a dog! Thanks.                                 PS. A fan might be nice in the bedroom and a sheet (too hot for a duvet!)                                  Cheryl and Jason, January 2012.

Perhaps we never truly recover from the loss of a loved one, but a mountain can remind us of our own impermanence, nature can remind us of the wonder and continuity of life, and a river can carry away a few of our tears.                                                               A dear father and his two sons found some peace and healing here. Thank you.                                                                   January, 2012.

Thanks Bronwyn, You’re very kind. I hope to be back here some day and will show all my friends in Cape Town and London the photo’s so I’m sure you’ll be seeing a few! Best wishes, Ray.                                         January 2012.


Hi Bronwyn, Thanks for an amazing stay. We loved your place and Jock. See you soon.   Anne, Sophie and everybody, January 2012.

We had a fantastic time here! Enjoyed the books, lovely swims and walks (some could be a little better marked) and very warm and friendly hosts! Thank you and Happy New Year!                               Toby and Ashleigh, January 2012.

Thank you for a lovely stay! We loved The Old School House and had a most wonderful swim in the river. We definitely hope to come back again, when we can stay for longer!        Sharone, Matt and Mira, January 2012.

Thanks a lot Bronwyn! Great stay, great view, place ambience, etc. Wonderful dog Jock, joined me for long run into the kloof! Fantastic!                           Shalk, Julita, Chardonnay and Rozanne, January 2012.

Thank you for a wonderful and relaxing retreat! We loved The Old School House and hope to return soon!               Cynthia and Erica, January 2012.


On arrival we were greeted with peace and quiet, nothing but beautiful Karoo scenery and a cosy, rather modern cottage with lovely finishes. We enjoyed our walks with ‘Jock’. Enjoyed watching Bronwyn and family take a leisurely drive on their tractor and trailer with kids, and Greyhounds following behind – it is lovely to see them relax too! We really, really loved the stay. The only little problem we had was the comfort of a too soft mattress that had us aching the following day. We would love to return even for long weekends often, but the mattresses need serious attention. Further more this getaway deserves a 10-out-of-10 rating and I wish them all the best with their little paradise. Thank you so much for a beautiful stay and I hope you let us know when you get comfy mattresses, and we sure will be back in a jiffy.

We would love to visit again, but for longer. It is beautiful there. Bronwyn is very friendly and helpful. The mattress was a bit soft – maybe you can look at that. No other complaints.

Thanks, Birgit and Marina. We have replaced the mattresses with new ones! Kind regards,
