Karoo Farm Stay - Erin Farmhouse & Cottages
Managed by owners, Trevor and Kathy, Erin is a child and pet friendly Farm Stay near Middelburg on the Eastern Edge of the Great Karoo, the vast central plateau of South Africa, with landscapes on a grand scale, sweeping skies and wide horizons.
Accommodation Middelburg Eastern Cape - Conveniently situated 10 km south of Middelburg in the Eastern Cape, midway between Johannesburg and Garden Route / Cape Coast and directly off the N9, Erin offers perfect en-route accommodation for a tranquil farm stay with wonderful vistas, champagne air, magical African sunsets, as well as star-studded night skies.
Erin offers relaxed, unassuming and comfortable pet friendly accommodation in Middelburg, Cape. With six accommodation options (some inter-leading and ideal for group stays), all the units have fans and heaters but not air-conditioning. Four of these units are fully equipped for self catering.
There are no televisions or radios in the rooms, so guests can have a break from the rat-race and unwind while appreciating the fresh air, space and serenity.
At the end of day, marvel at the multi coloured sunsets which dim over Renosterberg Mountain and later, watch the dazzling display of stars in the velvet night sky as the Milky Way arches above like a spray of diamonds - and if you are lucky, you may be able to wish upon a shooting star!
Enjoy a traditional Karoo dinner or farm breakfast in the Barnyard dining area which has views over the veld and Middelburg mountain landscapes. All meals are served by prior arrangement and breakfast is served from 07h00. Erin is not licensed, so we suggest you bring along your own alcoholic and soft drinks.
"The evening meal of lamb chops was spot on, the sun set was stunning and an early get away we saw several springbok close to the farm road. Just perfect hosts what more could you want" - Ray Sep 2019
"We absolutely loved our stay at Erin Farm House & Cottages! Magnificent view and sunset over the Karoo, friendly kitties and doggies. What a gem of a place filled with charm, great taste, the most comfortable beds, a deep feeling of safety and hospitality like no other! Kathy and Trevor are kind and generous hosts and Trevor is an excellent cook (not chef) and blew us away with his dishes of butternut soup on a chilly winters eve and a mouthwatering steak served with delicious veggies and potatoes! Farm fresh eggs and a huge plate full of brekkie again served by Trevor with his humor and larger than life personality just enough to make us leave definitely knowing we would be back! Such luxury accommodation in an old farm house just the best! Thank you both!" Jill - August 2017.
"What a jewel we find! We enjoyed our stay! Our kiddies enjoy the freedom of the farm. We have quality family time.. The place is very tidy and well equiped. We will definitely stay there again if we pass Middelburg in the future. Can certainly recommend Erin for anyone who is looking for a quiet place to unwind. Thank you so much Trevor and Kathy for a home away from home! Even my four year old feels so home, that he asked his dad if we can stay in our new home" - Isabel Sep 2019
