About New Holme Karoo Guestfarm

The New Holme Karoo guesthouse is situated on the banks of the Seekoei River to the north end of the Karoo Gariep Conservancy. We strive to accommodate our guests as close to home comfort as possible. It is not a tight hotel atmosphere but a very easy and relaxed home like stay.

Accommodation

The guesthouse sleeps only 11 guests in 6 bedrooms and this makes close and personal attention possible. The rooms are all en-suite, decorated and equipped with bar fridges, electric blankets, air conditioning and with tea and coffee facilities. In mid summer the pool comes to a necessary rescue and is a time consuming activity for the children.

Dining

Marisca is known for her high standard cooking. We make use of the well known Karoo lamb and venison as the basis of our three course dinners. All meats are produced on the conservancy and are organic. We only use of the best Cape wines which compliment the dishes. Home made bread and preserves are served. Most evenings you will sip wine around the braai fire with host P.C. as the bright sunset coullers make room for millions of stars.

On request we do an intimate “picnic braai” on the deck at the hippo pool, this is very informal and lamb chops are eaten off the braai by hand. A popular meal for honeymoon couples. This is a karoo experience.

Location

New Holme is 8 km of the N1 highway. The turn off is on the N1, 20 km North of Hanover and 50 km South of Colesberg.

I honestly couldn’t give a better, stronger, more positive recommendation for this place. I was driving with my girlfriend from Joburg to Plettenburg Bay for a week’s vacation and needed a last minute place to stay for the night in between and split up the 13-hour drive. I booked it only 3 days in advance and honestly didn’t have high expectations. I just wanted a clean place, maybe a glass of wine, food and some scenery. New Holme Guestfarm exceeded my expectations in every way. It doubles as a working farm and we had arrived on a Sunday, unknowingly about two hours after they had hosted 300 people and 90 horses for an event. Despite the lingering feeling that we’d just barely missed a really good party, the property was spotless. While clearly exhausted from the weekend, the owner was as gracious as can be. After we got settled in our spacious, fully stand-alone guest house (kitchen, sitting area, porch, bedroom, full bathroom, great shower) we had a great bottle of stellenbosch red on our porch. Then, along with one of his friendly and lovable dogs (Elvis, the beagle), he drove us to the “Hippo pool” for sundowners on a deck that overhangs the river, where there were indeed hippos and a gorgeous sunset. Once back at the main house, we were served a fantastic, delicious, 3-course meal (cooked by his lovely wife). Shockingly, we were literally the only people there. For R800/night, I dare you to find someplace better. And if you do, seriously, let me know. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - for couples, families on a weekend away or if you’re just passing through like we were. 5 stars.

My kind of life! To our wonderful hosts, Mariska and PC with baby Blesbok Bambi.. cherry on the cake, WELL DONE in every aspect. Henk and I LOVED all we saw overnight stay in a lovely spacious room overlooking beautiful gardens and pool. as 'my' tradition, where there is water, I'll swim, be it a bubbling Drakensberg river, or the beautiful Scarborough Ocean, New Holmes 'passed' with flying colours. Sadly we could only stay one night (we'll be back!) Staying on for breakfast was definitely worth every morsel of a super Karoo spread. Thank you both and the kitchen staff for a fabulous stay! One more thing... the 300 odd lambs being herded by three border collies to outer pastures, a sight to behold! :)) Thank you PC and Mariska for sharing your BEAUTIFUL KAROO JEWEL!. Hope to visit again... Warm and kind regards, Henk & Karin Behnken.
