                          Excellent half way stop between Johannesburg and Cape Town. the N12 is perhaps a bit futher than the N1, but Rooidam Cottage is worth the trip! Would actually love to stay there for a weekend.True karoo hospitality, convienient and there is an honesty to the place that that bring back memories of yesterday. They have managed to capture modernday convienice with the building style and decor of yesteryear. Place is a gem!

                          I received a warm wonderful welcome on arrival. My pets were easily accomodated and my puppy absolutely loved the farm. This always my go to place when traveling up from Cape Town. It’s conveniently located and I love the rusks available in the Chalet.

                          Wonderful owner, took us for a walk to see the lambs and encouraged us to pick some wonderful oranges to take with. Cottage so comfortable, beautiful and relaxing. Perfect overnight stop - remember to bring some lamb to braai!!
