About Erin Farmhouse & Cottages

Erin is a Karoo homestead near Middelburg in the eastern Karoo that offers you individual cottages for farm-style accommodation. Erin is only a few minutes’ drive from the town, and conveniently situated in the fresh, clean air of the open farmland away from lights and any other disturbances. Erin is pet- and child-friendly, with views over the sweeping plains to the nearby Renosterberg mountains.

Erin is situated approximately halfway between Johannesburg and the Garden Route/ Cape Town, providing you with an excellent stopover point. Your accommodation is located just off the N9 between Middelburg and Graaff-Reinet. This quiet, noise-free farmstead is also a perfect place for you to relax and unwind for a few days in the tranquillity of the open Karoo.

Your accommodation is pet-friendly, with all of our four units having a 1.2 m high fence to keep your animals safe and contained. All units are fully equipped for self-catering, including braai facilities and a pack of free firewood for you every night. All units have fans and heaters, but not air-conditioning.

At Erin we respect your right to quiet, undisturbed solitude, and there are no televisions or radios in the rooms, and no music or other disturbances are allowed.

You’ll love to enjoy a sundowner at the end of the day, perhaps with a braai (BBQ), watching the sun set over the Renosterberg mountains in the west. Feel free to go for a walk, watch the birds and the stars, and enjoy tranquillity at its Karoo best.

                  We arrived on Christmas day however Freyni as the host did not mind welcoming us while her family continued with their family celebrations. Freyni absolutely went out of her way to not only ensure that we enjoyed our stay but also offered to collect my order from the local butcher prior to our arrival and kept this in the freezer for me. Excellent service thank you and we enjoyed our stay.I will in future only stay over at Erin Farm Cottages when travelling to Port Elizabeth and can recommend this establishment to any traveller looking for good quality, clean and comfortable accommodation in...

                  We stayed in the apartment. Comfortable and spacious. It met all our needs. We had a little trouble flushing the loo - water pressure a bit low.

                  Lovely hosts, the cottage was humble but perfect as a nights stay for a weary traveller. All facilities were available and we had a braai under beautiful starry night sky. The morning views of the surrounding area was superb
