About Riverview Cottage

Riverview Cottage consists of a small church converted into 2 en suite double room and 1 single room with private bathroom. We also have a comfortable lounge / dining area with Dstv. There is also a large veranda on the Eastern & Southern side of the house where you can relax with a drink or book, listening to the call of birds and Fish Eagles.

Barkly West is in the middle of an alluvial diamond mining area, and the first diamonds were found here in 1869. There are several game farms, within a 100km radius, where game viewing drives are offered. In the Winter months there are several farms where hunts can be arranged, (from Springbok to Buffalo.) If you bring your own Jetski, boat, canoe or kayak there are several kilometres of river on which to enjoy yourself.

Fly fishing for Yellow fish amongst others can be arranged within a 50 km radius.

Airconditioned room what a blessing. The room was very nice. Ours led directly onto the verandah and our car was parked right there. The staff were excellent, so was the food both dinner and breakfast and we had a lovely chat with our host Paul. Sitting on the verandah we had a lovely view of the river. If our future travels take us that way we will very definitely stay there again.

I was made to feel welcome and comfortable. Dinner was prepared at my request and as very tasty. There is information about local sights and places of interest. The TV was able to receive the football. The room was warm and the bathroom well equipped. The breakfast was excellent. Overall the stay was fine and I would recommend this to others.
