About Overdale Guest House

Overdale Guest House is situated in Rosetta in the Midlands of KwaZulu Natal, 1km off the R103 midway between Nottingham Road and Mooi River at the entrance to the beautiful Kamberg Valley.


The guesthouse consists of three double, en-suite and individually decorated bedrooms equipped with tea and coffee making facilities, toiletries, electric blankets, heaters and for those cold winter nights a carafe of sherry in your room.


There is a cosy, communal lounge with roaring log fire, where guests can watch full DStv, read a book, play a board game or simply relax with a tipple of your choice. A full English breakfast is served in the adjoining dining room any time from 07h30 to 08h45.

Outside you'll find an immaculate garden with a fire-pit and seating. Guests are welcome to use the facilities to have a BBQ, should they require.

Horse studs and large cattle farms dominate the lush landscape of the area and horses, cattle and sheep can be seen everywhere. You are also bound to encounter wild buck, chattering guinea fowl, porcupine, and amazing bird life including raptors and a resident pair of Fish Eagles.

Self Catering

Our three bedroomed (all ensuite) 6 sleeper house (additional single bed in one room can be accommodated) in the village of Rosetta is available on a self-catering basis. Large lounge, dining room, kitchen and stunning outside areas complete this home. Strictly no pets allowed and no smoking inside the home.
