Accommodation

Oudrif-077In keeping with the sense of peace and solitude at Oudrif, it was decided that we limit accommodation to a maximum of 10 guests at one time. This ensures peace and tranquillity and also limits the impact that people have on the sensitive environment.

Each cottage sleeps two guests. They are equipped with one or two beds, an en-suit shower and toilet, a sitting area and a veranda. There are fans for summer and gas heaters in winter.

The 200 year old building method of plastered straw bales as building blocks was used.

Greenhause Architects in Cape Town were closely involved in this project, which is one of the first of its kind in South Africa, and the results have been far beyond expectations! The cottages provide comfort, shelter and greater insulation by utilising the conditions to the utmost by way of their unique orientation and design. Power for lights and water is gathered from the abundant sunshine which is collected by way of solar panels, and water comes from the perennial river.

The rooms are non-smoking; smokers are welcome to smoke outside only.
