Osfontein Corbelled Guest House in Carnarvon

Corbelled houses appear only in the Karoo in an attractive small area. These were the first houses built by the Voortrekkers in the early 1800’s.

At Osfontein, guests will have the experience of staying in one of these rebuilt houses and, as it is built entirely of stone with a well-insulated roof, the house is warm in winter and nice and cool in summer. The house has four rooms, one of which is furnished with a double bed and the other with two single beds. The bathroom is equipped with a washbasin, a flushing toilet and a shower. Hot water is also available.

The house is self-catering with the necessary cutlery, bedding and towels being provided. There is an electric stove and a fridge with a freezer. Candles are used for lighting so as not to spoil the atmosphere of this unique experience. The original fireplace with a thick yellow wooden beam can also be found inside and now serves as a barbecue area. Fires can also be made outside and wood can be bought at the farmhouse for R20.

If anything is needed, the farmhouse is within walking distance and also has a swimming pool where guests can cool off. With all the wide open spaces guests can go for long walks or mountain biking.

Sitting outside, guests will see the incredible star-filled sky at night which adds to the unique experience of staying in the Karoo.

"Wonderful"

Had a great stay. Owners are very friendly and we had a great Karoo experience.

review by Morne Binedell, South Africa

"Small piece of history"

We stayed at Osfontein on our way back home from the Western Cape. The beautiful scenery, Karoo night sky, full moon and great accommodation was absolutely wonderful. Our hosts greeted us with so much warmth we felt right at home. The house is really something to see! It is small but perfect for a couple or small family. No lights (only candles) which is absolutely wonderful and gives great ambiance to the house. Definitely worth a visit!
