Oudemuragie Guest Farm in De Rust is a picturesque farm situated at the foot of the majestic Swartberg Mountains. In this tranquil and safe unspoiled nature paradise you will experience old world hospitality.
Various accommodation options are available in the farm houses (cottages). These fully equipped self catering houses offer accommodation for 2, 4, 6 & 10 persons respectively.
Each house is privately situated with its own interesting garden, braai lapas and views which constantly reminds one of what it must have been like in paradise. Various premade, frozen dishes (lasagne, chicken pie, bobotie, etc.) are available and fresh meat and sausages may be bought from the Manor.
The swimming pool at the Manor is also available to guests.
The various hiking trails on the farm meander up the mountainside between huge aloes and across the many perennial mountain streams. The nature lover will enjoy the rare bird and game species, age old rock formations and diverse vegetation.
The clear night skies, silence and peacefulness makes a visit to this extraordinarily beautiful and serene farm more than a worthwhile experience.
All of these unique characteristics are supplemented by the true traditional South african hospitality offered by your hostess, Maggie Fourie. Truly an unique experience. The establishment has recently been graded by the Tourist Grading Council as a 3 - star establishment - however, it surely offers five star hospitality!
Oudemuragie Guest Farm invites you to experience a true Karoo birdwatching experience. A variety of different bird species are found on the site and here we represent Southern Africa's birdlife at its best. Amongst them you'll find the famous Weaver, building its nest, hanging from the branch of a Thorn Tree.
The Farm offers a wide range of activities besides the usual expected from a establishment like this. You can also rest assured that your hosts, especially your hostess, Maggie Fourie, will do everything possible to make sure that you enjoy the farm and its offerings to the utmost.
It is no wonder that all the accommodation facilities on the farm are fully booked, long in advance, for the annual Klein Karoo National Arts Festival. One only has to look at the visitors book to realise the extent of guests experiences on the farm.
An absolute bonus is the fact that you can bring your children along and forget about them for the duration of your stay. Amongst others, the farm's resident Staffy will take them on an expedition that will remain in the minds of any child - whether they are from the City or rural areas, it doesn't matter. They will soon find themselves helping out on the farm like old hands!
The animals on the farm will obviously also offer any kid the opportunity to experience farm living first hand. Your hostess will also be only to happy to take the kids on her early morning rounds - an experience in itself as all the animals on the farm have names and each one of them has to be greeted in a special way every morning.
The dam is fed by 7 different waterfalls and makes swimming an absolute pleasure.
Oudemuragie offers you the luxury choice of five different cottages. All these cottages are fully equipped and each of the kitchens are equipped with all the necessary utensils, microwaves, stoves, fridges, toasters, irons, etc. Definitely all your needs are catered for - part of your hosts philosophy to ensure that you can just relax without having to worry about anything.
The cottages are also very aptly named in true Klein Karoo style - giving each one of them an unique character. One of the reasons why guests, on returning to the farm, specifically ask for a certain cottage.
