The historic country town of Tulbagh is situated only an hour and a half's drive north of Cape Town, set in a beautiful landscape and famous for its heritage and magnificent country living.
Tulbagh was founded when the Dutch Colonial Government made land grants to Dutch and Huguenot settlers in 1658; the town developed slowly and over time but many notable Cape Dutch, Victorian and Edwardian houses were built in the valley.
Post the 1969 earthquake every historic home in Church Street was painstakingly restored to its original glory. These 32 buildings now constitute the largest concentration of National Monuments in a single street in South Africa and is a major tourist attraction of the town to the present day.
32B Church Street
It came to be that the Colonial Government hired house no.32 Church Street from two brothers, Ryk and Johannes Meiring, for twenty-five pence per month to use as the first English free school in Tulbagh. Since the outbuilding (now Bain's Barn) with its thatched lean-to roof had already been built, it can be reasonably accepted that this was in fact the schoolroom that was opened on the 22nd of October 1822, as the first "English Free School" in Tulbagh.
Bain's Barn, dating from 1801, offers centrally located, self-catering accommodation in historic Church Street, Tulbagh. Its Cape Dutch architecture features a thatched roof, sleeps two guests in one bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, has a fully equipped kitchen and offers a spacious lounge area and a secluded courtyard.
The ever so romantic en suite bedroom opens onto the secluded courtyard which is decorated with pebble stones and features a beautiful pink bougainvillea tree.
The room is equipped with a queen sized bed, high grade cotton linen, towels, a panel heater and a hair dryer.
The fully fitted open plan kitchen, equipped for two people, includes an electric oven, fridge, microwave, kettle, toaster, coffee maker, pots, pans, cutlery and crockery.
The spacious lounge area is tastefully decorated and furnished to the highest specifications with modern conveniences such as flat screen TV with DSTV.
