About Nilspoort Farm House

Nilspoort Farm is situated 28 km from Fouriesburg, in a peaceful and calm place for ultimate relaxation. The house was completed in 1907 by Piet van der Bijl, who lived there until 1925, and it can accommodate 12 guests comfortably.

The mountains and the peacefulness of this location will lull you into a blissful state to be one with nature. The farm house has three bedrooms, a beautiful lounge area, a bar with a fireplace, a dining room, a fully equipped kitchen with a coal stove, a gas stove and a gas fridge as well as an outdoor braai area.

Blesbuck and other wild buck and animals roam the hills and mountains - guests will spot a few of them. There are lovely dams where the keen bass angler can escape to. Off-road cyclists are welcome to bring their bikes, and for the nature lover this is truly something to remember.

Come and enjoy an old-fashioned getaway in the heart of the Eastern Free State, a place that will make you come back again and again. The price is subject to change according to quantity of people.

We enjoyed our stay in this original farm cottage in a beautiful location in the mountains about 30km from Fouriesburg. It's tastefully restored, with lots of original fittings, eg the kaggel.

I would return as often as possible.

Experience the tranquil atmosphere of farm living at its best. Beautifully located on the slopes of the drakensburg mountains.

At sunset one can walk up the hill behind the house and see range upon range of sandstone ridges glowing ochre from the last rays of the sun. When the sun sets, darkness descends quickly on the house. It takes time for the eyes to get use to the soft light of oil lamps and candles. Bats skirt...

A peaceful weekend in a beautiful original home. No electricity adds to the "simple" experience.
