Great camping sites with the old railway station and tracks one side and the cliffs the other side. Neat grossed camping sites with individual electrical points and shared water points. Ablution facilities were clean with plenty of hot water and soap dispensers and towels next to the wash hand basins. Within walking distance of De Krans wine estate, famous for...

The Ticket Office is a great room. Spacious and well appointed. The welcome was warm and genuine and the bar is relaxed, cheap and well stocked. The station itself is brilliant and will get the "little boy" inside of any guy exited about living in a train station. From stepping over the train tracks to playing with the trolley carts...

Beautiful, everyone should visit the old railway station. Could not believe that there are still places like this in South Africa. There is so much history in this little town. I could actually visualize the presence of the trains passing by during the 1800's

Cheryl and her partner are wonderful hosts.The railway trolly ensured hours of fun for both old and young. The establishment is within walking distance from town, but the wonderful bird-life (even two spooted eagle owls!) and quiet surroundings makes you...

On hearing we might be sleeping in tents after a 130km cycle from Barrydale, there was a little nervousness amongst the team, but when we arrived this was immediately dispelled by Cheryl, the owner. The tents are incredible and this place is so interesting and it was a joy to relax there after a hard day in the saddle. Accommodation...

We had a truly wonderful stay – from the warm and hospitable welcome to the excellent accommodation (beautifully clean and the bed beyond comfortable with excellent bed linen!) to the casual and warm vibe of the bar to the great people we met, to the beautiful, peaceful setting with the ultimate having to be the tortoise and owl sightings.

“We stayed in the tents -- a great treat and highly recommended as the night air is wonderful. But there are beautifully appointed rooms as well if preferred.”
