It is confined to the mountains around Sutherland on a southern peak, high up in the mountains.

The house consists of a fully equipped open-plan kitchen/living area that is gas operating, and an indoor braai and fireplace with firewood on request.

On offer is the opportunity to experience a working Karoo farm, hiking trails, some game roaming around and spectacular sunsets, all with warm Karoo hospitality

Sutherland is also close to the sites of unique corbel houses. Corbel houses are only found in this region in and around the towns of Fraserburg, Williston and Carnarvon. They almost look like stone beehives and were built from flat stones common to the area where wood was not available.
Mention the town of Sutherland and most people will know that this is the place where people go to look at the skies. It's where one can marvel at the star scopes that sweep the outer limits and where astronomers come to use the telescopes of the South African Astronomical Observatory.

Guest Comments

Very happy with what we had.

We enjoyed the experience of staying on a functioning sheep farm and we were impressed with the service and homely accomodation. The Mullers went out of their way to make our stay both comfortable and memorable.
