Country Road Guest House

Situated 50 km north of Graaff-Reinet on the Middleburg road, Country Road Guest House is within 35 minutes of Nieu Bethesda, the Mountain Zebra Park and Graaff-Reinet, making it an easy overnight accommodation in a relaxed farm environment.

Surrounded by historical farms, livestock and game can be seen scattered across the vast open Karoo veld, while Bushman paintings and fossils nearby tell of years gone by.

Every place tells a story; come and listen to ours. Wake up in winter to the cries of blue cranes or sheep calling their lambs in the autumn and spring. Visit the Crickleywood Alpaca Breeding Centre, the first alpaca farm in the Eastern Cape. Or simply relax in the garden listening to the singing of the bird life that abound in the area.

The guest house offers three bedrooms, and being an old Cape Dutch-style farmhouse, features include high ceilings and wooden floors. Guests have access to a coffee lounge with a TV, as well as a sun room. Breakfasts and dinners are available on request.

We are pet friendly and a per pet rate applies. We offer different options for our guests such as accommodation only and self-catering. Self-catering includes the use of a kitchen and braai area. Home-cooked meals are available on request.

    "A very well-situated farm, quiet, peaceful and safe. The hostess is a lovely cook, we had venison pie and fresh veggies, salad and a delicious cream tart. The host was extremely entertaining and we enjoyed a bottle of special red wine. Everything was just right."

    "It was an awesome stay. Lovely old house, we enjoyed the evening in front of the fireplace, the next morning we went to see the various farm animals. Most of all I enjoyed taking pictures of the windmill next to the house. Will definitely go back again someday!<br />"

  • "Comfortable stay"

    02 January 2015

    "We were six adults staying over on 20th Dec 2014. The house is old and in need of some repair, but the clean interior, comfortable beds and tasty dinner and generous breakfast spread made up for other things that some guests might not like. It was gorgeous to wake up with all the bird and farm animal noises. Lovely place to stay over with kids."

  • "Absolutely lovely"

    06 January 2014

    "Driving down from Pretoria to Mossel Bay we opted for Country Road Guest House as our overnight stop-over to avoid doing the long trip in one go. Sally was fantastic and very accommodating. The guest house was charming and the surroundings, absolutely stunning. Beds were very comfortable and we were well rested for the remaining leg of our journey. The stay definitely made a good start to our holiday. Thank you. We will most certainly be visiting again!"
