Verkykerskop Plaasdorp (Country Village) lies nestled amongst the table topped sandstone mountains of the Klein Drakensberg escarpment in the eastern Free State province of South Africa. Where five roads from all directions meet, the farms Verkykerskop and Aansluit were the logic point of contact during the Boer War, and the subsequent establishment of a police outpost, one room school, grain mill, blacksmith shop, post office, and auction kraal brought about the birth of this village.

The village layed dormant for a century until city folks, Matt and Beth Hoffman, yearning for their roots, bought the village and started reviving it to its yesteryear glory. An old farm shed now serves as a carpentry workshop, and together with the “Boeresaal”, has hosted regular festivals with performers such as Chris Chameleon, Valiant Swart, Ollie Viljoen, Karen Zoid, Frank Opperman and Shawn Else; the well-known De la Rey musical by Bok van Blerk was shot nearby.

Original homesteads as well as the old school and blacksmith shop were converted into guest houses and cottages. The old general dealer was revived into a pub, tea garden, antique shop and Smileys Restaurant. New facilities that were added include the Central Motel, a deli butcher shop, agricultural shop with fuel, and the modernisation of the police station.

Matt subsequently convinced his friends Louis Grobler and Chris Cameleon to join him in buying the 700 hectare farmland surrounding the village on which the original Aansluit Estate is now being rebuilt as a working farm and conservation area, boasting antelope, an Nguni herd, and the Aboukir Arab Stud.

Our accommodation at Verkykerskop is three star graded and covers the full spectrum including camping, farm and village cottages, guest houses, and the fully en suite motel. We cater for quiet farm stays, family get togethers, tour bikers, mountain bikers and other adrenaline junkies, as well as for weddings and corporate conferences.

With over 30 km of trails on the estate we offer horse, mountain bike and quad bike rides, as well as fishing, wing and game hunting, and wetland birding. The Witkoppen Gymkhana Club has one of their venues on the estate for your enjoyment, with our neighbours the Oakdale Polo Estate half an hour's drive down the road. We are one of only a few establishments who welcomes you with your pets, including your horse.

Its this winning combination of country village and outdoor living that makes this destination so unique. Our country hospitality and the pleasures of farm life will surely see you return.
