About Blesfontein Guest Farm

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.

                                      Nicol and Marina are very welcoming and friendly hosts. Nicol's stargazing was fascinating and he is full of interesting stories.

                                      This was by far the most beautiful farm I've ever seen, the complete silence allows you switch off and unwind. The perfect weather to snuggle up in a cozy bed and share stories and laughs. A romantic getaway for couples and a lovely place for a family to go on adventures. The drive in the farm bakkie to the escarpment was an absolute thrill. The silence is deafening and the view takes your breath away. It is a sight you'll carry with you forever. The stargazing given by Oom Nicol is magnificent, endless knowledge of the skies, which you could sit and listen to all night. Lovely calm horse ride...
