Die Gat Guest House

From R410 PPS

 

Overview

Die Gat Guest House, a farmstead and historic monument, is situated in the valley of Middelplaas ("the farm in the middle"), near De Rust. It has been in the hands of numerous generations of the Schoeman family since the early 1800s.

Characteristics of the old homestead, such as the paint of German origin on the interior walls of the "voorkamer" (lounge), the original architectural form of the house and the picturesque environment have ensured that many a South African film has been shot here.

Supper is enjoyed with your host and hostess, Anton and Susan, in the "voorhuis" (dining room) or under the pergola and under the starry night skies.

You will be treated on traditional "boerekos," regional dishes that Anton and Susan themselves prepare.
The guest rooms in the outbuildings, previously the school where the Schoeman children were educated, the cart-shed turned winepress, or even an ox wagon used by earlier generations, have been suitably furnished to give you a unique experience of the outdoors.

The tranquility and peacefulness of Die Gat ensures an unforgettable sleep. You can even sleep with doors wide open so as not to miss the grumbling of ostriches.

A sip of "witblits" and "mampoer," traditionally distilled as part of the farming culture of the region, is just the right medicine for low cholesterol and a healthy living. It is even possible to obtain a certificate for tasting "witblits" or "mampoer" as a fitting memento for a fine evening with your hosts.
Safaris on an open Land Rover with Anton as your tour guide may well be the utmost experience for the adventurous, with a braai in the veld and ice cold beer or wine as part of the 5 to 6 hours long excursion into the unspoilt nature.

A visit to the farm and the daily routine, where you get to know the ostrich with its fatal kick, and a visit to the labourers and their families ensure that you get to know the people and life on a typical Klein Karoo farm.

You can also relax at the special pool of Die Gat, with its beautiful view of the majestic surroundings.
