Situated just 90 minutes from Cape Town in the beautiful Overberg region, Greyton is home to the charming Post House.

The Post House was originally constructed in 1860 and is one of the oldest buildings in Greyton. The main building was used as a trading post and lodging for tired travellers. The Post House country pub, which is well known for the Bells whiskey advert, was also once Greyton’s post office.

The Post House was proclaimed a National Monument on 28 December 1993 and the unveiling of the plaque was done by former State President F.W. de Klerk.

Our guest rooms and restaurant have recently been elegantly refurbished and offer guests accommodation for weekend getaways, midweek conferences and intimate country weddings.

Greyton boasts a variety of art galleries, restaurants, coffee shops and quaint stores.

Greyton is fast becoming a popular mountain biking town offering routes for all levels of riders. Annual mountain biking events take place throughout the year. Greyton has proudly hosted the ABSA Cape Epic in 2009 and it will be hosting the ABSA Cape Epic event again in 2014.

Poespasrivier Cottage

Sleeps 4 in 2 rooms

Weekend Special   PoespasRivier Cottage is one of the original 1865 missionary cottages in the village of Bereaville, just 9km from Greyton.
PoespasRivier Cottage is one of the original 1865 missionary cottages in the village of Bereaville, just 9km from Greyton.

Berea is a peaceful, small, rural farming village. You will hear the cocks crowing, pigs getting excited at feeding time and farm animals wandering everywhere, while donkey and horse carts happily share the roads with modern transport and children playing in the streets.

Poespas means higgledy-piggeldy, here’n’there, deurmekaarspul and was the original name of the village. The name originated because the little river running through the village has its source on top of the Riviersonderend Mountains and runs in a north and south direction.

The cottage has been lovingly restored to its former glory with some necessary modern conveniences added. It sleeps two in the bedroom with double bed and there are another two single loft bunks on top of the rafters, which may be accessed via a slatted ladder, and are possibly only exciting for the younger members of the family or agile adults. Towels and bedding are provided. The bathroom has a large shower with a view, basin and composting toilet. A flush toilet is in the outhouse behind the cottage.

The dining area has a large ‘adobe’ bench with lots of cushions and comfortable seating around the fireplace. The kitchenette comprises a sink, three-plate gas hob and bar fridge with enough cupboard space for groceries. All basic crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils are provided. Guests are welcome to store excess frozen goods in the main house freezer or make use of the microwave there if needed.

The really cozy patio, covered with vines in the summer, has a large braai with ample seating and lovely views of the village and mountains.

Several plugs provide electricity for charging cell phones or using computers. We would like you to experience our country life the traditional way, thus there is no TV. Because the cottage has thick, insulating, ‘adobe’ walls it is cool, even on the hottest days, and not cold in winter. The fireplace heats the cottage very quickly though, with two bags of firewood provided.

The property is fenced with a lockable gate and ample uncovered parking. Mountain bicycles may be stored in the main house garage for safety.

Children are most definitely welcomed. We would like them to experience the traditional way of living in a country village. Pony or horse cart rides can be arranged or riding at the Greyton Riding Club just down the road.

Berea is central to some beautiful drives along the back roads with rolling hills and farmlands. Birdlife is abundant along the main river and even in our own garden 40 species of birds have been recorded over the years. There are 13 hiking trails and several international-standard biking trails in close proximity. Your stay would not be complete without a visit to the Genadendal Museum with the oldest water mill in South Africa. By special request visits to some interesting and varied farms may be arranged.

Greyton South Africa

Greyton  Accommodation
Far from the madding crowd, only 1.5 hours from Cape Town in the sleepy Overberg, you'll find Greyton, a peaceful and picturesque village at the foot of the majestic Sonderend Mountain Range. Mighty oak trees, original thatched cottages, leafy lanes and breathtaking mountain views form the backdrop to this country gem that will enchant and delight you.

Greyton is best explored on foot or bicycle, enabling you to drink in your surrounds. The scenery is fabulous, the coffee shops tempting and the villagers friendly. No matter how appealing it is to limit oneself to a bit of gentle meandering, it would be a shame not to take the time to explore the host of outdoor activities whilst here.

A hiker and mountain-biker’s paradise, there are well-marked trails for every level of fitness and expertise. Greyton is the starting point for the famous one- or two-day Boesmanskloof trail – more commonly known as the Greyton-McGregor trail – and other activities include tennis, horse-riding, yoga and bowls. Golfers can enjoy a round at Caledon or Kleinmond, the two municipal courses within an easy drive of Greyton, or the magnificent privately-owned Arabella Golf Course, which is ranked by Compleat Golfer magazine as the number one golf course in the Western Cape.

The peaceful little hamlet of Greyton lies surrounded by the Riviersonderend (river without end) mountains and farmlands some 90 minutes from Cape Town. Greyton is fast earning the reputation as a perfect weekend getaway.

Essentially lost in time, Greyton, named after Sir George Grey, twice Governor of the Cape, is a picture-perfect rendition of an old town with its gravel roads, thatched roof cottages, pretty little gardens and beautifully restored buildings. The people of Greyton are friendly and the route into the village of Greyton along the R406 as it winds its way through the emerald hills and fields of wheat, barley oats and lucerne of the Cape Overberg, a most pleasurable drive. The sun always seems to shine in this part of the world and the oak-lined streets of Greyton, where ducks cavort in the canals and donkey carts clatter, are as much a way of life as the many outdoor activities.

The historical buildings of the Post House, St Andrews Church, the Smouswinkel and a number of others, are worth the visit alone and, for Capetonians especially, Greyton has become an antique and craft hunters’ delight with everything from bygone treasures to pottery.

There is a craft market every Sunday in the Greyton village square and the annual Rose festival, in October and November is not to be missed. But above all, Greyton is a nature lovers’ destination. It lies at the foot of the Riviersonderend Mountain range and, besides the multitude of day walks in the area there are also a couple of hiking trails.

The Noupoort hike takes one to the summit of Kanonberg whilst the Boesmanskloof Trail takes six hours to reach McGregor, on the other side of the mountain range, during which it meanders through mountain side, the Gobos River gorge, a number of refreshing pools and nine waterfalls. A weekend away in the quaint village of Greyton with its shops, restaurants, pubs and art galleries is simply a pleasure.
