Avondrust Farm Stay

Avondrust farm is located in the foothills of the mesmerising Swartberg mountains. 50Kms from Prince Albert and 7kms from the beautiful scenic Meiringspoort. Enjoy a truly South African farm-style experience and revel in the abundance of peace and tranquility. Refresh your mind and soul and leave with a lingering sense of calm. We’ve taken great care in creating a home away from home, just for you and your family.

The farm offers three guest houses, all uniquely different. Tastefully restored with a blend of old-world charm and modern convenience, Avondrust Guest House offers four en-suite bedrooms (one of which is wheelchair-friendly), all with fully equipped kitchenettes as well as a two bedroom family cottage (with private patio and braai facility). The spacious communal kitchen (with scullery) and braai patio can be used by all guests. Cool off in the pool and laze around under the old oak tree. Experience incredible sunsets and the Karoo landscape whilst basking in luxury and style.  At full capacity Avondrust Guest House can accommodate twelve guests. 

Môreson Guest House offers two self-catering cottages. Môreson House consists of two bedrooms (one en-suite and second twin bedroom), second bathroom as well as spacious country kitchen with scullery and large entertainer’s patio with exceptional views of the garden and Karoo veld. The cottage boasts two bedrooms (one double and one twin), family bathroom as well as quaint open-plan kitchen, eat-in dining area, lounge and private braai patio. Both cottages are fully equipped, ensuring your self-catering break will be pleasantly remembered.  The pool area with outside shower, bathroom facility, braai boma and spacious lounging areas, all set in a beautiful manicured garden, is available to all guests and perfect for lazing around. Book either cottage or both for larger family gatherings and friend-get-aways…

Ebeneser Cottage caters for small families or a couple of friends. This cottage was tastefully restored without changing too much of it’s original Karoo charm. Enjoy the open-plan dining room and kitchen (with scullery area), lounge and spacious deck overlooking the farm and koppies. Braai under the vineyards and experience unrivalled views of the Swartberg Mountain range. This cottage is perfect for anyone looking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life…

Guests are free to walk on the farm, go hiking in the hills, cycle the farm roads and try your hand at bass fishing in any one of the numerous dams. There is a network of farm roads to explore and for the more adventurous, ask about the incredible self-drive 20km track up to the mountain dam (covered in snow during the cold winter months) surrounded by spectacular fynbos flora, abundant insect life and illusive game.
