About Riverstill Guest Farm

Riverstill Guest Farm is a nestled in a deep and secluded valley, about 6 km from the hamlet of Groot Marico. There are four guest cottages on the farm, each with privacy in mind. The cottages date back to the first half of the last century and give one a good idea of how folks used to live in those days.

The biggest cottage can accommodate seven people and the smallest cottage is equipped for two people. All cottages have fireplaces for the winter months, and verandas. Riverstill is a self-catering establishment with a central lapa for the use of larger groups.

The Marico River runs through the farm and is definitely the biggest drawcard with canoes on the water and a nifty swing. Riverstill co-hosts the annual HC Bosman Festival an there is a labyrinth to be walked, trails to be hiked, fishing in the river and amazing stargazing at night. Guests are welcome to pick from the herb gardens that grow around the main house to spice up their salads, and to sample the locally distilled mampoer.

Please supply your own firewood and bring your own towels. There is lovely little restaurant in town called Marico Memoirs; please book ahead of time. Visit the Marico Information Centre and the Bosman Living Museum while you are in town.

We loved our stay! The cottage was cozy and we LOVED the dogs who kept us company :) The setting is beautiful and it was a relaxing and wonderful stay.

We travelled as a family from New Zealand (3 adults, 2 teenagers). The accommodation is very rural, cottages nestled in the bush on a farm on the outskirts of Groot Marico. Down a pretty rough road through three farm gates. We weren't entirely use to the wildlife, both outside and inside the accommodation! Made for an interesting overnight stay in a lush area of the country.

We thought the stone cottage and surrounds were enchanting. It is well fitted out and comfortable. The owner's many large dogs were somewhat intrusive and necessitated living with doors shut to protect our snacks and to stop them wandering into bedrooms at night. Pity. Would not recommend the access road for a 2x4.
