The kitchens are equipped with electric and/or gas stoves.
Our most popular unit is the Honeymoon Cow Shed.Unit 3
Most of the units were stone built stables which we converted into rather unique accommodation units.The others were old farm buildings converted for convenience, without losing their character.

Come and enjoy stargazing nights with Nicol at his own observatory at the farm.
From Blesfontein it takes about 40min to drive to Sutherland and another 20min to the Observatory. It is a gravel road but we do our best to keep it in order. NO 4×4 needed but a little more ground clearance will always help.
We have been inspected by the Tourism Grading Council of SA and was approved as a Two star graded Guest House.
We do not have a liquor license, and do not officially sell liquor, but will help out from our private collection of cold beer and several wines.
There is MTN signal in our house and on other higher areas of the farm, as well as for parts of the road between Sutherland and Blesfontein, but unfortunately Vodacom and Cell C signal only in Sutherland. Wifi available in main house. (password: 34445810)
