Watermill Farm – Self-Catering Cottages

Surround yourself with the serenity and tranquility of Watermill Farm. Enfolded within the foothills of the Rooiberg Mountain Range and enclosed by the demarcated Rooiberg Conservancy area, Watermill Farm is situated 3km from the Little Karoo village of Van Wyksdorp, just off the R62 highway.

Step back into a timeless world, one without electricity, but holding the glow of candles and a wood burning Dover stove. Limited self-catering accommodation is available in beautifully restored cottages with magnificent views. All cottages are fully equipped and beautifully furnished. Creature comforts include a three 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 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 environmental ethos, solar cookers and composting toilets are also made available outdoors for guests to use.
