About Oewerzicht Tented River Lodge & Farm Cottages

Oewerzicht farm is located in the peaceful and picturesque Greyton Valley only 9 km from Greyton. Oewerzicht is an operational farm with fresh apples and pears available from January to May. The rest of the 600 ha farm consists of rolling wheat lands, many cattle and a herd of Reebok. Birdwatchers will also be delighted to see, amongst other, blue cranes, secretary birds, and large flocks of guinea fowl. You are of course free to hike all over the place, or bring your mountain bikes along to enjoy the farm. We also have fishing rods, tractor tubes. There are two lovely braai facilities on the riverbank to use.

Oewerzicht farm has six stone cottages each with its en-suite bathroom and seven cottages. Welgeleë and Bergzicht are semi-detached and was the original farmhouse. The old blue gum ceilings and Oregon pine doors creates a real farmhouse atmosphere. The cottages are located on the edge of an apple orchard and about 100 m from the Riviersonderend River where you can do some excellent bass fishing.

Each cottage has its own outside as well as an inside braai facility. The cottages are decorated with old Oregon pine and oak furniture that enhances the atmosphere.

Uitsig are four freestanding cottages set next to each other about 300 m from the river on a hill with spectacular mountain views. Each cottage has two bedrooms with double beds, two bathrooms, and open plan kitchen living room area with inside as well as outside braai facilities. Uitsig cottages do have a swimming pool between the four. All seven cottages are fully-equipped with all essential appliances. Towels, linen and wood are provided. Please note that we only accept two night bookings over weekends. During the week we do accept one night bookings.

Ons kamer was ongelooflik warm en die waaier was def nie genoeg sal aanbeveel vir lug versorgers. Die bedkassie is in flarde so ek kon dit nie gebruik nie. Die gordyne aan die voorkant is nie skoon nie hande merke ens. Ons het bly bel sodat ons kon ys en hout koop maar elke keer net n antwoord masjien gekry, en ons ry toe na ontvangs toe geen mens in sig om ons te voorsien van ons basiese behoefes nie.

                                                              We arrived at Oewerzicht at 10pm, as we were working late. There was no service, and we could not call anyone to hear where reception is so we can get our key for the cottage. After about min of driving up and down, and knocking on the reception door we drove past some campers who showed us where the house is where the lady with the keys stay. We drove back o the same house we were at before, and I had to knock and scream to get attention of this lady. After we finally heard we dont need a key, we were looking for the bridge for another 30 min or so. The lady gave us totally wrong directions,...

                                                              We stayed in Bergzicht which has a lovely view over the lawns to the tennis court and across to the mountains. Really enjoyed playing frisbee on the lawns and making use of the tennis court which was great as there was nobody else there. Overall we had a great experience but I don't think it would have been as good if all the other cottages were occupied. Bergzicht is actually half of an old house and the layout is not optimal. However I would recommend a stay here.

                                                              The whole three days were spoiled by the continuous noise from the pumphouse, it didn't stop from when we arrived at 14h00 on Tuesday until we left on Friday morning. We did report this and were given the opportunity to move but the alternative was only slightly quieter and not worth the aggravation. The stone cottage was OK but nowhere to hang clothes.
