Thank you for a lovely reflective pause in our lives. The hours in the hammock with that view – pure relaxation. Nothing like blooming aloes for the soul. If you can’t find Jock, it’s because we took him home! We’ll be back. Bev and Tony.

Thank you for sharing this corner of paradise with us! The sublime view of the meandering river, drawing your eye up into the mountains, fading into the afterglow, is like a stairway to heaven! The view, the accommodation, the decor, the attention to detail, the Vanity Fairs, the aloes, the birds, and Jock (honeypot of note) makes for the most amazing getaway ever. And I mean that with all my heart. Just perfect. Nicky and Gavin.

We second everything heartily. The greatest jewel here are Bronwyn and Colin. D&G

An outstanding place. What a pleasure to find a self catering cottage that’s not filled with somebody’s leftover furniture, but rather, stylishly put together for comfort and pleasure. Attention to detail from long matches for the indoor fireplace to a deliciously cozy bed spread to a hammock on the stoep. It really is just perfect. Thank you so much for giving us the pleasure of being able to stay there. Nicky

Dear Bronwyn, Thank you for having us on your farm. We had the most wonderful, restful weekend and have already told many of our friends that they should see and experience it for themselves. We certainly hope to visit again in the future. Kind regards, Lesley

Thank you for sharing your incredible farm with us! We came here to celebrate our one year wedding anniversary and are leaving feeling completely contact and full of joy We will be back, next time with friends to enjoy this beautiful place with us. Ben and Lesley
PS After meeting Jock, we are considering moving our “Let’s get a dog” plan up by a year or two. What a little legend!

Coming from Joburg, this is so uniquely different, what a spectacular piece of our country. Thank you for letting us share it with you. We will definitely be back soon. Angus (11 years old) and Dad.

What a fantastic retreat. We love the silence. We’ll be back. Angus and Vicky.

Another great getaway few days. Peace and quiet – getting back to nature wit our family from JHB. Lovely! Anne and Bill.

Peace, Tranquility and a bit of fun…We’ll be back soon. Shan and Michelle


Laat is die son om hier
op te staan
Vroeg is hy om weer
web te gaan
Met die dik mure is ons
In die ou skoolhuisie
kan ons goed uitrus
In Matjiesvlei by die
Gamka rivier
Is oranje alwynblomme en
voelgetjirp ‘n plesier
Die rue, stilte en vrede
neem ons saam
Die dae vlieg hier ongesiens verby,
ons moet nou gaan.

PS Love the book collection!

The perfect tranquil getaway for quality family time! Thank you for sharing this bit of “Karoo heaven” and preserving history in the old farm school. Hope to be back soon. Theo, Danelle, David, Martin.

Had an amazing time! The Skinner family.

A very enjoyable overnight – what a lot of history in The Old School House. A pre-breakfast hike to the river bed whetted appetites for a good breakfast! The road is in such good condition. Thank you very much for a lovely stay – would love to come back. Jennifer, Mariah and Cassie.
