On arrival at this lovely farm location we were greeted warmly by Marian (apologies if wrongly spelt). The property is surrounded by farmland and immediately creates a calm and relaxed feel. We were given the Manor suite which consisted of a large bedroom, sitting area and separate toilet and bathroom.
All were clean and bedding was crisp and relaxing.
We had our evening meal at Oue Weft and the three courses were all delicious. Local wine was top notch.
A highlight was standing after dinner, glass of red in hand looking at the stars on a beautiful clear night.
Highly recommended accommodation and great staff.

I stayed overnight with some overseas friends on our way back to Cape Town. The family are most welcoming and the farm very interesting. The old buildings are in beautiful condition and most of the bedroom units are cottages in the garden around the main house. Our rooms were supplied with a welcoming drink of fortified wine from the local winery. We enjoyed these sitting on the stoep outside my room which overlooked a bird-lively dam.

Very high standard of accommodation altogether. We didn't stay long enough to sample the coffee shop or the swimming pool as we had to head off early the next morning.

Off the beaten track about 15mins north of Oudtshoorn, Oue Werf is a collection of old buildings renovated sympathetically, but to a modern standard. The owners are very welcoming and are 6th generation owners of the property. Comfortable furnishings, wonderful aspect and good food. Well worth a stay.

In our 2+ week stay in South Africa, this was one of the top 3 places we stayed, and most were superior. We loved, the family run theme and the variety of historical artifacts and paintings on display. We felt that we really gained an appreciation of the rural farming history of the area. We were in a cottage that was well appointed and felt very special to be there. The dinner and breakfast on site were served family/buffet style and featured traditional dishes that were extremely tasty and were carried each day. There is an adjacent winery and an Ostrich Farm across the street. Nearby natural attractions include Cango Caves, mountain passes and waterfalls.

Service was friendly and super.

We recommend you consider Our Werf Country House as your base for several days to explore the local little karoo area.

If you go to Oudtshoorn to get away from the city rat race, Oue werf country house is synonym with peaceful accommodation in a relaxing environment but with all the luxury associated with a 5-star hotel. We love this place.

The rooms were extremely clean and had wonderful linens on the beds, Very comfortable room (with A/C if needed), mini frig and even a small tray with a few glasses, dishes, etc for a mid day snack. Outside our room was a lovely pond and weeping willow trees, a perfect place for a drink or coffee!

We visited here while travelling along the garden route. The beautiful converted farm buildings are very comfortable and cosy, they are set in a lovely tranquil gardens with a swimming pool. The staff are very attentive, we also ate here as the nearest town was quite away away, and I’m pleased we did the food was excellent. My only moan we should have stayed another night.
