  • Important Information
Blesfontein is situated 28 km southwest of Sutherland in the Northern Cape. This large working farm offers nine self-catering rooms, each on a different part of the farm.

The stone units are all basic yet offer all the necessary amenities for self-catering. Each unit has its own bathroom facilities and most units have an indoor fireplace or a braai outside.

The farm itself offers a large terrain to explore either by taking a long relaxing walk or heading out on your mountain bike. There is also an abundance of animals and bird life on the farm. In the cement reservoir next to the Poplar trees down the hill we have a lot of friendly Koi fish.

The tame farmyard animals are harmless and friendly. Although all the animals are fed regularly you are allowed to feed them at any time of the day.

10 Reviews on Blesfontein Guest Farm

With true Karoo hospitality, we were welcomed by owners Nicol & Marina. They made us feel right at home, the kids loved the horse riding and feeding the Khoi fish in the farm dam and the two tame pigs and Alpaca herd really delighted them! We really appreciated Nicol getting up at 3 in the morning to do stargazing with us, he is very knowledgeable on the topic of stars and what an experience to feel so close to them! The accommodation was very clean and very comfortable, and a really great time was had by all! My only negative comment would be that the stay was much to short, we will definitely have to go back for another visit!

Road to plato was bad but thes rest was fine considering that its rating is 2 stars.

We could not have wished for a better start to our holiday. It is (far) off the beaten track. We stayed for 2 nights - we should have stayed longer! Our hosts, Nicol and Marina, were very hospitable and made us feel so welcome in their wonderful environment. The farm is so peaceful. The view from the escarpment is breathtakingly beautiful. We drove there with snacks and drinks - there are picnic tables to appreciate the view in comfort. (It would be possible to walk there - for keen walkers/hikers). We took long walks on the farm - it is peaceful and quiet. The farmyard is "open" - amazing to experience: potbelly pigs, chickens, lambs, horses, alpacas, koi fish and rabbits. We made our reservation on rather short notice and landed in the "smallest" annex - it was basic but adequate - and did not detract from the surroundings. We booked self-catering accommodation and the kitchen and indoor braai facilities were sufficient to prepare basic meals. I felt like a child and wish I could have shared this with my godchildren. We had lambs in our room!! And the pig visited on occasion too.... Nicol is a keen and very knowledgeable "star gazer" and the evening spent around the telescope in the amateur observatory was something to remember forever. His enthusiasm and love of sharing his knowledge is a pleasure to see. I am grateful that we were in a 4x4 and would strongly recommend that you arrive long before dark (to appreciate the environment and not to drive on the unknown roads at night) Most definitely going back. Although only about 3 hours from Cape Town it feels like a different (much calmer) world out there.

The hosts went out of their way to allow us a wonderful stay. Great accommodation and magnificent meals. Such lovely people and would love to go back.

Absolutely love the place. It turned what would otherwise have been a boring drive from JHB to CPT into a memorable adventure. The accommodation was great, but the star gazing was outstanding - unrushed and peaceful. The stars were as they should be. The suggestion to watch the sunset from the edge of the escarpment was inspired and the game spotting on the way out was an added bonus. Driving down Ou Berg pass really made whole trip for me. The warning from the Fortuner driver that he was having problems driving up over the drainage humps only added to the satisfaction of this Englishman in a Land Rover Freelander! So much more fun than a day on a 4x4 course. Thanks for a great stopover.
