We stayed in the Saffron cottage which is situated in a lovely and peaceful part of Middelfontein Farm. The cottage has two rooms, one that includes the bed, dining room table, kitchen and a large fireplace and the other is the bathroom. Although there is no electricity, all the necessary amenities are provided. The farm entrance is less than a kilometre from Sutherland and less than 20 km's from the South African Large Telescope (SALT). With so little light pollution, the stars look spectacular once the sun disappears. There are also a number of walking trails. We tried the 6km trail and found it easy to negotiate and a lot of fun. Quite a bit of effort has been put into a plant identification booklet that names the various plants as you wander.

No better way to spend the day than a peaceful hike on Middelfontein farm. The perfect way to experience the unique ecology of the Karoo. Juanita was just lovely and showed us around the farm before leaving us with a map and guidebook full of plant names and interesting milestones to explore. Definitely worth a visit when in Sutherland.

Very relaxing stay at Saffran cottage. There is no electricty but we managed to charge our phones during the fabulous tour that Jurg does at the other end of Sutherland. We really enjoyed our stay at the small but comfortable cottage with the most amazing starry skies. There is a 2 hob gas burner but no water inside except the bathroom sink although there is an outside tap with a hosepipe that would be good to use. The candles light the cottage very well. A great place to look at the stars, walk in the Karoo and get away from it all.

It's worth doing Jurg's night sky tour, it's fantastic!

middelfontein farm located just outside Sutherland is hosted by Juanita and family. Highly recommend this for couples or families. Indoor and outdoor fireplace, walking trails, fully kitted out for self catering. They run a quiet well equipped farmhouse with all the modern amenities you need. We had an amazing stay. And we will be back

The road out of Sutherland becomes a gravel road half way to the farm and the track to the farm is also gravel BUT it is worth every rattle and bump to get there. Very quiet, very beautiful and very relaxing.

We visited Sutherland in July and stayed over at the farm cottage Middelfontein.
It is such a nice cottage with a fireplace in the kitchen and heating panels in the sleep areas.Very cosy and I loved the view and the fact that we could go for walks in a safe peaceful environment.
Sutherland and the large telescope is a must !
