Milking Shed


Milking Shed

Children under 12 can eat before the adults in the evenings, after which  a DVD can be viewed in our comfortable lounge, close by, whilst the adults enjoy dinner with peace of mind.

In the suites we charge R80 each for children under 12 for supper, bed and breakfast. A third adult in the suite will only be charged R360 each. We welcome children of all ages and your pets are most welcome too.


We love spoiling guests with our warm Klein-Karoo style hospitality.

A hearty breakfast, traditional home-cooked dinners served with a continental touch, is our specialty. We cater for vegetarian, vegan and banting diets. On request, we will go out of our way to accommodate anyone with food allergies and intolerances

Walking trails and hikes

Our walking trails are well maintained, making them clear and easy to negotiate. There are some strategically placed benches along our walks where one can sit, look and listen to the magical heartbeat of the Karoo, a truly unforgettable experience.

Marie, Grant, Ronnie and Merle

Marie and Grant head up the team. Ronnie and Merle, who joined The Retreat at the end of last year, are fitting in very well and are a true asset. All the staff at The Retreat, are waiting to once again make your stay a memorable one.

Misty and Bonny are always happy to welcome visiting dogs and are very well socialized.

The little flock of guinea fowl which started to breed and hang around the  gardens four years ago have become tamer and they come in for their ‘mielies’ (corn) every day – they are now thriving and we are very happy!

We all look forward to welcoming you!
Best regards
Grant, Marie, Ronnie & Merle
