A Farm Story Country House
A Farm Story Country House is surrounded by pastures and breathtaking views a place to retreat from city life.

Experience today`s accommodation in yesterday`s style and traditional hospitality. A Farm Story Country House is situated between Riversdale and Albertinia on route to Stilbaai.

It was born from a tradition that believes a story speaks to the soul and the heart.
-"Oom Tom se Huis" (The Country House) was established in the early 1800`s on the farm Klein Soebatersvlakte.

- The Kasselman family are the owners of this estate for 5 generations and the land is still well preserved.

- The house played an important part in the history of the Cape, as the stables were used as a hospital during the most southern battle in the Anglo- Boer war in 1902.

- The first ever, gravel road between Riversdale and Stilbaai is still, to this day, being used and accesable on the farm.

- The famously known "Kontrei Winkel" "Oom Boet se Winkel" was the only general dealer in the 1900`s.

Three luxury rooms available with private entrance, en-suite bathrooms.

All rooms have coffee-and-tea trays.

Bedding of the finest linen (300 thread percale) and towels are provided.

Enjoy each unique room with its own historical elements, and story to tell....
