About Limestone House
Limestone House was originally built in 1922 to house a family of five. It had two rooms and an external cold room, all built from white limestone found on the Elizabeth Hill farm.
The Galloway family lived there from 1922 to 1928. In the last 100 years, this little house has been home to a few families, farmers and a even some goats! Since then, it has been thoughtfully restored. This little house has built character over the years and you will feel like you have taken a trip to the past when you spend time here.
We do not have electricity at Limestone House, so come with the expectation of experiencing life in simpler times! We have a working cold room, a paraffin freezer and a coal stove to warm the house on winter nights. We make use of solar lights and oil lamps to light the house. Come and experience a real farm getaway at Limestone House, only one hour out of Windhoek and accessible without a 4x4.
The house is adjacent to a barn, waterhole and small vegetable garden, which you are free to explore and use. You are welcome to take short walks in the veld and a 5km walking loop has been marked for our guests.
Safari: The establishment is on a game farm and you may be lucky and see some wildlife drinking at the nearby waterhole or while walking/cycling.
Family friendly: Children can explore the farm and book a pony ride.
