De Hoop (Isolated Winter Cottage)

This is a very primitive and rather dusty old Tanqua Karoo house totally isolated and without service. Ideal for the nature lover. There is no electricity and no cell phone reception. A landline phone is only available when the baboons have not broken the line. There is no one on site so you will need to operate completely independently. De Hoop has a wood stove and a wood-fueled “donkey” for warm water. There are four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a kaggel inside braai. We supply beds with mattresses, cooking utensils, pots, pans, braai grids, plates, cups, dishes, knives, forks, glasses, broom, mop, etc. and wood for the donkey. You will need to bring everything else! Please pack your own food, drinks, linen, duvets and towels as well as toilet paper, soap, matches, dish washing up liquid, dish towels etc. There is firewood for the braai and kaggel for sale, using the honesty system. Use what you need, but please keep track of your purchase.

Verified reviewvery good

Set away from the town of SUtherland this farm offers peace and tranquility. We stayed in the ex cow shed and it was really atmospheric. The in room cooking facilities were a bit basic, but we made do for two evening meals. We ate one evening and all breakfasts in the farm restaurant area and the food was really tasty and freshly cooked to order. Our hosts were extremely helpful and friendly and made us feel most welcome. The animals on the farm were varied, springbok, tortoise, alpaca (amazing), meerkat (amusing), horses, cats, dogs, geese, goats, pig etc. In the end we spoend most of our time lazing arund the farm - and we are basically English town folk! We would definitely return if we are in the area again.
