About Barn Guesthouse

Escape the city bedlam and experience the tranquility of nature. Barn Guesthouse is ideally situated for travellers from Limpopo and Mpumalanga to Cape Province. Barn Guesthouse is a working cattle and maize farm situated on the N1, 22km south of Kroonstad, directly next to the N1.

An old dairy has been converted into an indoor braai which is ideal for private functions or conferences. We also offer outdoor braai / lapa facilities. Bring your quad bike and enjoy the freedom of farm life, or just come and have a peaceful rest on the farm with your host Aljo Schutte.
