About Osfontein Corbelled Guest House

Check-in: 1:00 PM

 Minimum stay: 1 Days

Corbelled houses appear only in the Karoo in an attractive small area. These were the first houses built by the Voortrekkers in the early 1800’s.

At Osfontein, guests will have the experience of staying in one of these rebuilt houses and, as it is built entirely of stone with a well-insulated roof, the house is warm in winter and nice and cool in summer. The house has four rooms, one of which is furnished with a double bed and the other with two single beds. The bathroom is equipped with a washbasin, a flushing toilet and a shower. Hot water is also available.

The house is self-catering with the necessary cutlery, bedding and towels being provided. There is an electric stove and a fridge with a freezer. Candles are used for lighting so as not to spoil the atmosphere of this unique experience. The original fireplace with a thick yellow wooden beam can also be found inside and now serves as a barbecue area. Fires can also be made outside and wood can be bought at the farmhouse for R20.

If anything is needed, the farmhouse is within walking distance and also has a swimming pool where guests can cool off. With all the wide open spaces guests can go for long walks or mountain biking.

Sitting outside, guests will see the incredible star-filled sky at night which adds to the unique experience of staying in the Karoo.

The Corbelled house was just perfect for the 3 of us. We had chilly weather , so spent our evenings inside around the cosy fire.

The stars above, the great landscape, the old Building, bornfire, the dogs and last but not least Natasha and Stegmann. It was a stay which we never forget.

We enjoyed the fact that we could emulate history by staying in a corbelled house. Perhaps a stay in spring/summer would have been more comfortable as the shower was never warm in the mornings and the evenings because of the cold outside temperatures. We loved the warm hospitality of the farmer who took the time to show us the different accommodation on his farm and who drove us to see his... Read more
