Overview

You will immediately feel at home as you slow down to the relaxed pace of country life and take time to experience simple beauty, the attention to detail, the small unexplained things, the dogs the cat the ducks and the horses – the odd shaped rooms - the garden with quirky stone men - the warm and inviting lounge leading onto a large shaded garden with swimming pool, bedrooms with French doors and shutters opening into the garden - the harshness of the Karoo that gives you grace in the evening and gentleness in the morning.

Our guest accommodation and facilities are separate from our own, affording our guests a level of privacy not normally associated with a guesthouse.

We accept credit cards (Visa and MasterCard only) and guests are most welcome to use the Wi-Fi.

Breakfast and other meals

Breakfast is served in the garden under the trees in summer weather permitting and in winter in the main guest lounge with fire place.

The generous Onse Rus farmhouse breakfast is a real treat: homemade muesli, fresh farm dairy products, fruit juice, bacon and eggs with mouth-watering local preserves... and just wait until you taste the cream!

We are fully licensed and cater for large tour groups. Dinner is served upon request with a minimum of 4 guests booking - you might fancy a simple omelette or a three course Karoo dinner - chat to Lisa. If you prefer to eat out we can recommend a number of excellent restaurants all within walking distance from the guesthouse.
