Loadshedding Facilities

What is loadshedding? It refers to the temporary suspension of electricity provided by Eskom, South Africa's electricity provider, to reduce consumption and thereby the load on the national grid. To compensate, South African property owners are turning to solar power, inverters with backup batteries or in some cases generators to keep the power on, wherever feasible.

Verified reviewvery good

Accommodation was very good. Setting is amazing. But oh, the road to get there!!!! Between Ficksburg and Fouriesburg cannot be called a road! Such a pity cause I would go back to this venue anyway!

This is the place to go for all enthusiasts and lovers of all things vintage. We had an amazing time despite the wet weather. Mariette went the extra mile to make sure we had a fantastic stay. She's one of the best hostesses out there. The ox wagon ride was a highlight and seeing the steam train chuggy passed was a huge bonus. Thank you Sandstone for a memorable holiday.
