Oewerzicht is a fully operational farm, harvesting apples, pears, broccoli and cauliflower for most of the year. The rest of the farm consists of rolling wheat lands, large flocks of sheep and if you are lucky, you’ll also see a herd of Reebok roaming freely on the farm.
Birdwatchers will also be delighted to see, amongst other, blue cranes, secretary birds, and large flocks of guinea fowl.
Guests are welcome to hike the trails on the farm or bring mountain bikes along to enjoy the magnificent scenery through the orchards. Bikes can also be rented in the village.
Children will have a wonderful time on the farm with its stretch-out lawns, and guests are welcome to bring their well-behaved dogs (max 1 per cottage, or 2 small dogs, but only on arrangement) along to the self-catering units (unfortunately no pets allowed at the campsite or tents). The owners’ child-friendly Boxer, Katy, loves popping in and saying hello to guests visiting the farm.
There are three (3) farm style cottages (situated about 50 meters from the river):
Bergzicht, Welgeleë and Citrus.
Bergzicht and Welgeleë are semi-detached and both have one bedroom with a double bed and two single beds in the living area. Both these cottages have an indoor and outdoor braai area, as well as a lovely and spacious verandah. These cottages accommodate 4 people each.
Citrus has one queen size bed in the main bedroom and an en-suite bathroom, and a double bed and 2 single beds in one bedroom. The double bed is a sunken bed in a room that is reached by climbing through a “hole in the wall”, which is great for kids and youngsters, but might not suite an elderly couple or those looking for privacy. There is a separate small flatlet at the back with a queen size bed and an en-suite bathroom. Altogether Citrus can accommodate 6-8 people. The cottage has a fireplace, an outside braai area and a large verandah for entertaining.
There are four (4) Uitsig cottages overlooking the river and mountains:
Four (4) Uitsig cottages are situated on the hill (about 300 meters from the river) and with panoramic views of the Riviersonderend mountain range.
All the Uitsig cottages have a living room, two bedrooms (one with a queen size bed and en-suite, one with two single beds), and separate bathrooms, indoor as well as outdoor braai facilities. The cottages have a communal plunge pool (next to Uitsig 1).
We love children and pets (maximum 1 dog per cottage only)
This is a sheep farm, so owners will be held liable for all damage done to animals, dogs to be kept on leads at all times.
