About Karoo Werf Gastehuis

Karoo Werf Gastehuis is situated in the historical town of Cradock, a serene but typical Karoo farming town lying on the banks of the Great Fish River. The guest house offers three fully equipped flats, two double bedrooms sharing a kitchen and a separate self-catering garden cottage.

The original part of town is graced with some of the finest buildings. The Dutch Reformed Church is a national monument, designed to look like London’s St Martin’s-in-the-field, and there is the Olive Shreiner House Museum which is devoted to the authoress’s life and works.

The town’s streets are lined with Ilex Oak Trees, particularly on Dundas Street, where they have been declared a national monument. The Old Water Mill is completely restored and worth a visit. The Great Fish River Museum, housed in the converted second Dutch Reformed Church, conveys what it was like to live as a settler after 1806 during the second British occupation of the Cape.

              Lovely old Karoo house with nice interior decor. Very well equiped. Nobody hower was there on arrival but Carien sent Nicolene with the key and the wait was not long. She was very friendly and answered all our questions in a kind and friendly manner. Will return for sure.

              This is a quaint home, decorated with an eclectic range of collectibles and it is a perfect base for chilling and/or short day trips in the area, for example to Mountain Zebra National Park. There are no frills such as DSTV or wifi, but they were not needed. This is particularly ideal for two or three families travelling together, as we were, since you then have the house to yourselves. We loved it.

              We enjoyed our stay. The beds were warm and cozy and the room nice and big. Outside area was neat and garden lovely. The shower can use a new showerhead and the TV only had SABC 2. The guesthouse is known in Cradock as The Olde Pastorie so we had difficulty in finding it when we arrived. We will stay there again!

              The accommodation in pleasant and comfortable.  It is a house that has been subdivided into various ensuite accommodations which are lovely.There tends to be a bit of noise as the movement and chatter of other guests can disturb you. I was able to tune it out, though others in our group were bothered by it. If you use this accommodation, note that the guest house and book in office are on separate premises.  It caused quite a bit of confusion on our arrival at the guest house.
