The Place is a highly recommended B&B with self catering option, providing accommodation in Ladismith for anyone 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, which sleeps two to four guests and Red Rock Cottage, which sleeps six. Both the Studio Flat and Red Rock Cottage are fully equipped for self catering. Please see the individual unit descriptions with photographs below to assist you with your choice.

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 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 reviewvery good

Relly lovely accommodation. We thought it might be chilly inside and would need to light a fire, but it was incredibly warm. the Studio is quite big and felt spacious, comfortable and homely. We enjoyed our stay there.

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!
