Olive Schreiner, one of the first voices of literature and feminism in South Africa, lived in Matjiesfontein for a number of years.
Matjiesfontein is a place saturated with history—you simply have to walk down its quiet main street to feel the hum of the past all around you.
Our lovingly curated gardens are an oasis of green amidst the Klein Karoo scrub; a fertile desert hideaway that attracts diverse birdlife.
You’ll find our Farm Stall inside the old Masonic Hotel (also known as Ou Losieshuis); just through The Coffee House.
