This historical old Victorian house, built in 1890, was first used as Mine Offices and during the South African War as a mess by the British troops. It was in possession of the Wormal family for 50 years, and in 1996 it was converted into a guest house.
Situated in a "kloof" on the slopes of the Mkhonjwe Mountians, overlooking the town of Barberton and the De Kaap valley, our guest house with its spacious veranda provides an opportunity for relaxation.
The house is in walking distance from the centre of town as well as the various tourist attractions, such as the Jock of the Bushveldt Monument, Belhaven Museum, Fernlea and Stopforth House as well as the Block House, which was used during the South African War.
With one double bedroom-en suite and two twin rooms both en-suite, we can accommodate 8 people with ease.

We highly enjoyed our stay here. The atmosphere of the house and the interesting conversations with the host were memorable and unique. We encountered history and personality in both. The reason I have not marked "excellent" is simple: there is a quality which can't be measured by those standards and this is what we found. Thank you very much U. R. Kleinhempel & C. Perschke
