About Ouplaas Town Guest House
Ouplaas Town Guest House is situated in Ottosdal in the North West Province. The sandstone house was built in 1917 and is well equipped for guests travelling by. The fully-catered facility offers great charm and a beautiful garden. Magdalena and Coert are known for their hospitality with style, and Magdalena’s love of music, people, interior decorating, and good food give a distinctive character and atmosphere to Ouplaas.
Ottosdal lies on the R507 between Hartebeesfontein and Delareyville, north west of Klerksdorp. While there is not much at first glance, Ottosdal just happens to be the only town where the wonderstone/pyrophyllite is found and mined. It also boasts the oldest annual agricultural show in the province.
The town features a British fort, ancient war trenches and cemeteries, a Garden of Rembrance for the soldiers killed during the Anglo-Boer War, the Old Water Mill built in 1860 that is a National Monument, and Khoisan rock engravings on local farms. Today it is mainly a farming community with a couple of supermarkets and coffee shops. Aside from the obvious historical value, there is a golf club, an opportunity to run in the town's Nite marathon or Half Marathon, stay on local farms and game reserves, and a chance to visit Bloemhof Dam located just south of Ottosdal, considered one of the best fresh water fishing dams in the country.
