The Place is a highly recommended B&B with self catering option, providing accommodation in Ladismith for tourists visiting the Karoo region.

About The Place

Escape to our retreat for nature lovers, situated on the Touw River in the magical untouched heart of the Klein Karoo, easily accessible from Route 62 and the N2 at Riversdal. The accommodation is situated at the end of a private road in a beautiful secluded valley.

Self Catering Accommodation

We offer two accommodation units – The Studio Flat, which sleeps two and Red Rock Cottage, which sleeps six. Both the Studio Flat and Red Rock Cottage are fully equipped for self catering and, for those visiting the Studio Flat, delicious home cooked meals are available by request. Freshly baked bread, farm eggs from our 100 percent free range chickens and any other organic farm or locally produced fresh produce can be purchased when available. A small menu is usually provided with some baked and fresh goodies for you to order.

The Studio Flat:
The Studio Flat is situated 60m from our 160 year old traditional Karoo farm house and is fully equipped with hot water, electricity, Wi-Fi internet and cell phone reception. There is a wood burning stove inside for cosy winter nights.

The Studio Flat is open plan with one double bed. The sofa can accommodate a small child. The private bathroom has a hot shower and toilet. Glazed patio doors give access to a shaded outdoor seating area and a brick built braai. Views of the koppies, Touw River, distant mountain ranges and breathtaking sunsets are all on your doorstep.

Red Rock Cottage:
Red Rock Cottage is situated 230m away from the farmhouse and Studio Flat in a secluded stand of trees at the foot of a beautiful red sandstone outcrop, called Red Rock.

The cottage comprises two spacious en suite bedrooms. Each bedroom has it's own separate entrance and the en suite bathrooms with showers are modern, spacious and completely private. A sofa bench in each room doubles as a single bed for children or adults. The first bedroom has a fireplace and a small private stoepie.

The living area is open plan and consists of a fully equipped kitchen with a gas stove, fridge, double bowl sink and lots of storage. Two comfortable sofa benches also double as single beds for children. The free standing fireplace ensures cosy winter nights. The dining area sits adjacent to large windows and glass patio doors, opening onto the outside area table and seating, braai and uninterrupted views of the surrounding landscape. If you are not the braai type; there are patio fires to keep you warm outside whilst enjoying the spectacular Karoo night skies.

The Farm

Our farm is 100ha and the terrain is very varied. A short wander through will take you to the river and its grassy banks or sandy beaches for a swim in the rock pools after good rains. Alternatively you can explore the magical mini valleys, dry river beds, fossils and strange succulents that make our landscape so unique. The views from our koppies are breathtaking and there are many quiet farm roads to explore by bike if you like. The dam, when full, is a bird watchers' paradise and the pure air ensures some magical star gazing on clear nights.


Well behaved pets are welcome. A small fee per pet my be applicable. Pet owners are responsible for cleaning up after their pets.

Verified reviewexcellent

Our stay at The Place was absolutely perfect - the only thing I would change would be to add a few more days! Lizelle was so friendly and accommodating and we loved the home-made bread. As for the space - the Studio was absolutely perfect. Cosy and warm in the evenings with the wood-burner going, fresh and cool in the heat of the day with doors open. Understated and stylish with Lizelle's gorgeous artwork on the walls. We enjoyed exploring the surrounding land, lazing in the hammock, and a wonderful sunset braai. Highly recommended!
