About Smithfield's Mud House

Smithfield has an amazing, colourful and interesting artist by the name of Sue Rosie who built her own mud house from the soil, clay and straw on her property. It is one of the main attractions in the town and although it is still a work in progress, she will be happy to allow visitors to come and look how her dream is coming to fruition. Visits can be arranged at the Purple House Bed and Breakfast at R25 per person.

It truly is worth the visit. Even if you come to Smithfield for this alone!

The Mud House is on the walking route through town within about 5 minutes from the start of the mountain walking trail.
