About Rosstrevor Guest Farm

Rosstrevor is a late Victorian farmhouse, beautifully restored and just 25 kilometers from Barkly East. Nestled in the foothills of the Witteberg, the southern extension of the Drakensberg and 30 kilometers from Tiffendell Ski Resort.

Find peace and tranquility by strolling along the banks of our crystal streams, or do bird watching or visit our rock art sites. Hiking in the high mountains or forsaking in the river gravels for crystal agars will keep you entertained for hours. We pride ourselves in providing the finest fly-fishing for Wild Rainbow Trout or Orange River yellow fish.

The crystal clear river flows for 18 kilometers around deeply incised meanders and past sandstone cliffs. In season you may like to hunt grey wing francolin, guinifowl or mountain rehbok. The old barn, a beautiful stone building dating back to 1878, once was a dairy, has been renovated into the most beautiful venue for your dream wedding and functions. The Old Dairy restaurant is also open occasionally.

We offer value for money in this tastefully decorated farmhouse and a laid back holiday with healthy activities. It is a must!


The hundred-year old farmhouse has been painstakingly restored and furnished in late Victorian style. The house can accommodate 10-12 people comfortably.

For entertainment indoors there is a cozy bar, built from wood grown on the farm, in a TV lounge. There is an unusual indoor braai to keep you cozy on a chilly winters evening. The kitchen with its agastove is fully equipped and all crockery, cutlery and glassware are provided for self-catering. In the dining room you can enjoy your meals around an old style dining table with an essistove to give it a warm and home full atmosphere.

The house is fully equipped with electric blankets open fireplace and heaters in the winter. We have a separate Rondavel sleeping 3 people with its own bathroom.


We offer you the finest fly-fishing for wild trout. The crystal clear river has many trophy size rainbow trout and yellow fish, and flows for 18 kilometers around deeply incised meanders and past sandstone cliffs.

The vanished Bushmen have left many signs of their passing, in caves and under overhangs are many paintings including the unique twelve meter “dragon” supposed to be painted while in a dragon like trance.

Hiking or riding horse across the extensive property will reveal many species of birds for bird watching and perhaps a mountain rehbok or a baboon. You can go for a nature walk along the beautiful river and cool you of with a refreshing swim in the crystal clear water, or even take your lunch with and enjoy a peaceful picnic on the bank of the river under a willow tree.

In season you may like to hunt grey wing francolin, guinifowl or rehbok. If you like the extreme and adventure with your 4x4 vehicle we can take you on an unforgettable 4x4 drive on our own property or in the surrounding area.
