About Drinkwater Guest Farm

Drinkwater is situated 18 km south of Ermelo on the N11. The guest house is on a working sheep and cattle farm, a welcoming oasis of warm South African hospitality. The ideal overnight bed and breakfast accommodation in the Ermelo area as well as offering conference facilities.

The farm acquired its name during the Anglo-Boer war for the clear freshwater springs found on the property. Drinkwater is midway between the Northern Limpopo Province and the KwaZulu Natal Drakensberg Mountain Resort, game parks, Natal battlefields and coastal areas - perfectly located for all sightseeing.

There are eight fully equipped en-suite bedrooms with sleeper couches. The comfortable rooms are set in garden cottages. Enjoy hearty farm breakfasts and dinners by arrangement in our dining room. We offer a full laundry service and Internet access on request. There is secure, covered parking for your peace of mind and a lovely park-like garden to relax in.

                  Super clean, conveniently close to N11 without getting road noise. Child friendly. Wonderful hosts. Great to be back 9 years later to enjoy this stop over just as much as before.

                  What a great overnight stop! Will definitely visit again when in Ermelo. All the animals and space was enjoyed by our kids. Room was warm and breakfast was delicious.

                  My wife and I enjoyed the stop over at Drinkwater very much. The room was lovely and clean. Breakfast next morning was more than adequate and kept us going until we got home.Owner Marianne extremely friendly and pleasant. Will come again if we have the opportunity to do so.

She was most welcoming and accommodating.The room was spacious and the beds comfortable - all you need for a good night's sleep.All-in-all, our stay was an absolute pleasure. I would definitely...
