The Guest House
At the foot of Lancaster Hill, set in a one acre park, our Guest House can accommodate 17 guests.

Our seven comfortable bedrooms are elegantly furnished and decorated with the paintings of local artists. They have private bathrooms with showers or baths and a range of luxury guest amenities. Hairdryers and shavers plugs are conveniently situated for you to use. Our tea and coffee tray offers you the pleasure of making your preferred beverage your room.

All our rooms have air-conditioning and your valuables can be locked away in your room safe.

Our superb honeymoon suite offers a cosy lounge, an extra large bathroom with an oval bath, a private terrace overlooking a secluded portion of the garden and a separate entrance and parking place for your car.

In the middle of the garden our sunny breakfast room offers you our scrumptious full English buffet breakfasts in a quiet and elegant setting.

Days can be spent reading a book by our sparkling pool, lazily sunbathing in the garden, playing pétanque (a popular French game of balls) or a round of golf at the golf course nearby, or walking in the Vryheid game reserve in the company of zebras and antelopes. Children are welcome and our park is a safe place for them to play and if, by any chance, they get dirty we offer a laundry service!

Our garden is a paradise for the many species of birds recorded in the area.

When the sun sets, it is time, to show your mettle on the billiards table before walking safely to one of the restaurants close by.

When you come back after a good dinner in town, your remote control will open the gate for you. Your car is safely parked under protective carports

If you come with a private plane, Vryheid has a modern airport.

Our service brought us many appreciative comments from travel guides such as Lonely Planet, The rough guide, Arthaud, Le Petit Futé. Nous Parlons Français.
