About Walkerbouts Inn

Walkerbouts Inn is located in the historic village of Rhodes at the southernmost tip of the Drakensberg mountain range, 16km due south of the border with the mountain Kingdom of Lesotho.

Barkly East lies west of Rhodes above the escarpment. It is 60km or 60 minutes drive from Barkly East on a narrow and winding gravel road that must be driven with care. It is a remote village almost frozen in time, a relic from the past and indeed, a living record of the trials and tribulations of the surrounding farming community.

Accommodation

Walkerbouts Inn is a spacious haven with comfortable en-suite accommodation, fine country cuisine and hospitality in the best traditions of the “Platteland”. The relaxed and hospitable atmosphere makes it a home-from-home where well-behaved pets are welcome by prior arrangement.

The en-suite bedrooms all have a double and a single bed and two of the “family rooms” have an extra single bed. Beds are all fitted with electric blankets and wall-mounted heaters in the bedrooms to help ward off the winter chill. Should winter temperatures really plummet, the inn is also heated by four anthracite heaters and an open “Jetmaster” fire-place adds to the ambience of the restaurant.

The sunny lounge is a great spot in winter from where the soaring mountains can be admired in warmth. The dining area adjoins the lounge and the cosy pub next door boasts a wood-fired pizza oven

Breakfast & Dining

We grow as much of our own vegetables and herbs as weather permits organically in our vegetable garden and heated tunnel. Green asparagus in spring and early summer is an added bonus. The produce ensures that the freshest and tastiest veggies and herbs add an extra dimension to our country cuisine.

To add a bit of extra “colour”, one of our specialities are the best pizzas in Rhodes. Thin, home-made bases allow one to savour the ingredients that guests select from the pizza menu. As far as possible, we use as much locally grown beef, lamb and chicken as can be provided by our suppliers.

Activities and attractions

Activities & attractions in the area include snow skiing in winter at the nearby Tiffindell Ski Resort, horse riding in the Wartrail area, mountain-biking, birding, walks on the village common, rock art by arrangement, 4x4 routes, guided Alpine flower tours in summer by arrangement.

Fly fishing on more than 200km of running water and two great still waters can be arranged at Walkerbouts, headquarters of the Wild Trout Association. Guided outings can also be arranged and at least one day’s guided fishing is recommended to allow enthusiasts to acquaint themselves with local conditions and tactics.
