Cradock Accommodation

Cradock is a small town in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa. It lies inland and forms the 3rd point of a triangle in which the other two points are Port Elizabeth (to the south) and East London (to the south east). Cradock's bustling nature is due to the fact that it is hub of a successful farming region. It is widely acknowledged as a major centre of South Africa's wool industry and the area is also known for its mohair production. Beef and dairy cows as well as Lucerne are farmed in the area.

The very first inhabitants of the Cradock area were the Khoi herders and later the Xhosa moved into the area too. The Xhosa are the main tribal group in the area to this day. While the Xhosa and the Khoi people lived in the area for many years prior, Cradock was only established as a town in 1812. It was selected as a magisterial seat for the region thanks to its strategic location in the frontier wars between the British and the Xhosa.

Today Cradock is a thriving little town and is a lovely place to visit with many interesting attractions in and around town. Among them are the impressive Dutch Reformed Church and Die Tuishuise. The latter is a series of old houses to be found on Market Street which have been returned to their former mid-Victorian glory thanks to caring refurbishments. A stroll down this street provides a glimpse into the Cradock of yesteryear.

The Olive Schreiner House Museum provides insight into the early years of this world-renowned author, and the Mountain Zebra National Park outside town saved these mammals from extinction in the mid-1900's. Today you can view stunning scenery and a variety of birds and animals in the park.
