About Outsiders B&B

In the heart of the quaint Karoo hamlet of Nieu-Bethesda, lies Outsiders B&B. Be as private or as sociable as you like. Either way Katrin and Ian, your well-travelled hosts will make you welcome and offer unique advise on what to do locally and beyond. Relax on your stoep and watch village life pass you by at the unhurried pace of bygone times.

ACCOMMODATION

Cosy double rooms offer an en-suite shower with toilet and a private entrance. Cotton linen keeps you cool in summer and warm in winter. On crisp frosty nights, snuggle up in woolen duvets and mohair blankets. With luck, you may wake up to a gentle sprinkling of snow. Fresh towels, tea and coffee and heaters help you feel at home.

Breakfast is served all day in the adjoining restaurant. Enjoy tea, coffee and juice; home-made bread, jams and cottage cheese; farm butter and cereals. Delicious bacon, eggs and Karoo wors are cooked to perfection in Nieu-Bethesda's largest frying pan. Light lunches and evening meals often feature local lamb and venison. With a bit of warning, we also create tasty vegetarian dinners.
