WATERMILL FARM is situated 3 kilometers from the Little Karoo village of Van Wyksdorp, off the R62 highway. Ideally suited to Nature lovers, plant and bird enthusiasts and those simply needing to soothe their souls.

At WATERMILL FARM step back into a timeless world, one without electricity, but holding the glow of candles, and a wood-burning Dover stove for comforting warmth.

Limited self-catering accommodation is available in our lovingly restored, thatched “Miller’s Cottage”, the “Old Barn” with it’s magnificent views or in Tant Mina's House. All are fully equipped and beautifully furnished. Creature comforts include a 3 jet table-top gas cooker or solar powered hot water with modern shower/toilet facilities. Tant Mina's cottage also has limited solar power.

All WATERMILL FARM cottages have been sensitively restored with care and concern for the environment, using traditional techniques and materials. Features include whitewashed earth walls, dung floors and woodwork preserved with Aloe juice. In keeping with our environmental ethos, solar cookers and composting toilets are also made available outdoors for the use of our guests.

Van Wyksdorp is very much off the beaten track. We do have cell phone reception, but no tar road access.
There is no petrol available in the village and the supply of diesel petrol - so we recommend that you fill up before heading this way.

No Pets.
Not suitable for Children under 12.
