About Blydevooruitsig Gastehuis

Blydevooruitsig is a beautiful old stone guest house with all the modern facilities. Gates give you access to the property and there is a double garage with direct access to the house. There is an open-plan kitchen with freshly baked rusks available, and a large living. Enjoy a quiet evening in the lounge with a fireplace as well as a TV.

This guest house offers self-catering in four bedrooms with 2 full bathrooms and self-catering facilities. Accommodation is affordable and comfortable, and bedrooms have crispy clean bedding, snuggle blankets and electric blankets. Guests are welcome to bring their own DStv. Wood is for sales at R25 per bag.

There is a large front garden where children can safely play while the adults enjoy relaxing on the patio.

Mention the town of Sutherland and most people will know that this is the place to look into outer space as it is filled with clear and dark night skies. Sutherland is one of the coldest towns in the country with frequent snow falls during winter. It is truly a beautiful sight to witness the looming Roggeveld Mountains bedecked in snow.

It is rate to arrive at accommodation and have your expectations exceeded. This was indeed the case at Blydevooruitsig. The house is beautiful, well appointed with comfortable beds, electric blankets and plenty hot water for our group of seven people. Thank you so much - we will be back.

We only stayed one night but was very impressed with the accommodation.  The house is beautiful and full of character and the gardens well maintained.  Well positioned.  The house is extremely neat and well appointed with attention to detail.  The kitchen is fully equipped and we enjoyed using the indoor braai room (which would be a very welcome fireplace room in winter).  The beds and linen high quality and very comfortable. Would love to stay there again for longer.  Highly recommended!!

What a lovely spacious and quiet place to stay.  We were a group of 4, staying in a huge house that can sleep up to 12, so there was plenty of space.Everything we needed was provided.A few small things do need a handyman to do some DIY on and some of the lounge chairs weren't very comfortable (though the braai room ones were).Our teens loved their double beds and pillows and wanted to take them home with us - I'll stick to my own at home though!We went in January and due to cloud cover, especially in the evening, we didn't see one star - however, the huge verandah was a great place to sit and...

My husband and I did a road trip from Richards Bay via Bloemfontein to Sutherland and back home via the Garden Route and Blydevooruitsig Gastehius was THE best by far.It was clean,comfortable and all the necessities you can think off. Thank you for this gem.My whole experience in this place was amazing.Including the star gazing.We ate the best Karoo lamb ever.We will definitely stay here again .

A literacy museum in the house where two famous Afrikaans poets and writer brothers, N.P van Wyk Louw and W.E.G. Louw were born in this house. Interesting displays.
