Description

The Space

The Biesiehuis (thatched cottage) is situated on a working farm near the village of Great Brak River, centrally located between Mossel Bay and George. We offer a relaxed stay on the Garden Route with beautiful views of surrounding farmland.

The cottage offers a loft bedroom, a bathroom, kitchenette and spacious living area. It is equipped with crockery, cutlery, a coffee maker, microwave oven, gas cooker, towels, and bedding.
We can accommodate parties of up to 4 guests (1 x queen size bed in a loft and 2 x single beds in a private area downstairs). Guests may spend their evenings in the open-air boma watching the night sky while cooking a steak on the fire.

Attractions in the area:

A ten minute drive will get you to the village which offers shops, restaurants, lagoon and beach.

The Bottlierskop Game Farm offers day & night game drives, their famous big cat walk and wonderful dinners in their African Restaurant (±15 km).

For the foodies, visit the world-renowened Transkaroo restaurant in town (±10 km).

There are numerous golf courses in the area such as Fancourt, Pinnacle Point, Oubaai and Mossel Bay Golf Course.

Nearby Oudtshoorn (±65 km) offers ostrich farms open to the public, the Cango caves, and the famous KKNK cultural festival during April.

Other interesting things to do include the Great Brak River Museum in the old school house built in 1902, the Watson Shoe Factory - the reason for the town's existence.

There is a circular route, outlining history and culture, through the village. Southern Right and other whales visit the sea shore from May through November.

The Biesiehuis is reachable by car (no 4x4 vehicle required). For our more adventurous guests we have mountain bikes for hire for short trips into the countryside.

A tarred road leads right up to the farm entrance, with the Biesiehuis about 800m further down a well-maintained dirt road. There is ample parking available right at the doorstep.

There are daily flights available to/from the major centers at the George Airport which is about 25km away from Great Brak River.

Guest Access

Guests welcome to arrive any time after 2pm.
Enjoy moonlit cook-outs in the boma (enclosed fireplace) next door.
Explore the Fynbos surrounding the cottage, or take short walks on the farm.
If bad weather keeps you inside, sip a glass of red wine beside the indoor fireplace.

Interaction with Guests

I usually meet at least once with guests during their stay to welcome them and enquire about any special needs.
