The Family Unit - This historic cottage dates back to 1861. It can accommodate up to 5 persons making it perfect for travelling families. The cottage consists of a kitchen with a gas stove, microwave, full size fridge and coffee & tea facilities. A lounge area with a daybed, a main bedroom with a double and single bed, a second bedroom with two single beds and a bathroom with a shower. It also has a private street facing patio with an orange tree and a park bench in the enclosed front garden.

The space
We have three separate units, all equipped with televisions connected to our free 10mb/s WiFi network so you can stay up to date with all the latest shows on Netflix and Showmax. We also offer a communal braai area in the far back corner of the property at the foot of the koppie where you can view the iconic NG Church tower peeking through the olive tree groves while the ducks and chickens graze underneath, adding the final touch to a true farm feeling. We have a farm style pool accessible to all of our guests to cool off in during the warm summer days. Guests are free to pick fruit from our multiple fruit trees at their own risk and within reason.

So after a long day on the road, stop over at Eighteen Sixty One and take some time away from the hustle and bustle to relax and unwind in an old farm style setting before completing the rest of your journey well rested and recharged in the morning.

Limited locked parking is available per prior arrangement.

Where you’ll be

Colesberg, Northern Cape, South Africa

Located in Stockenstroom Square, a safe and quiet neighbourhood that forms part of the historic part of town. The old cottage building dates back to 1861 and was preserved well over the years, still brimming with character to this day. We are within walking distance of a park, picturesque churches and multiple locally owned restaurants where you will be met with customary Karoo hospitality.

My husband Johlan and I met each other in Colesberg and we decided to settle down here, close to our families. Because the town is so centrally located with the N1 and N9 meeting up here, we are free to pursue our shared love of traveling and we frequently visit different parts of our wonderfully diverse home country, South Africa. We decided to open our home up to fellow travelers passing through town so they have a place to rest up before continuing onward with their own journey in the Rainbow Nation.
