About Orchards Guest Farm
If you are looking for an escape from the stresses of life, why not relax in the countryside in your own private house tucked away between the apricot and nectarine orchards. The house is rented out on a self catering or bed and breakfast basis.
Orchards is set on Odessa, a working fruit, olive and wine grape farm in the picturesque valley of Tulbagh with its majestic mountains (snow-capped in winter), enchanting vineyards, fruit orchards and olive groves. The farm is situated approx 6km from the historic town of Tulbagh with its many restaurants and art galleries.
This recently restored guest house has all the comforts of home, coupled with views that are out of this world!
The house is rented out on a self catering or on a bed and breakfast basis and has 3 spacious double, en-suite bedrooms which open onto a reed covered veranda which has beautiful views of the surrounding orchards, mountains, spectacular sunsets and the tranquillity of the countryside. One of the rooms boasts a queen sized brass bed and a fireplace for chilly winter days. The other 2 rooms have oil heaters. They all have fans for summer.
The living area is open plan and has a fully equipped "industrial style" kitchen (also used as a cooking school) with a separate scullery containing a dishwasher. The dining area seats up to 8 at an oregon table. The spacious lounge is comfortably furnished and has a fireplace, TV and CD player. There are French doors onto the terrace which has a built in braai. The house is fully equipped with linen, towels, crockery and cutlery.
The ever changing Mountains form the backdrop to this picturesque farm. This is a perfect retreat, a place where the "Absolute Peace" will restore weary souls, and the only sounds are bird songs and the cry of the fish eagle.
