Compass view is a quirky, cosy cottage in the heart of town. Beautifully appointed and comfortable, you will feel right at home in the space, no matter what the weather forcast says. Handmade sleeper wood beds and quality mattresses and linen will have you snoozing the afternoons away, and the small but well equipped kitchen has everything you need. The conservatory which used to be used to grow orchids in years gone by has been transformed into a colourful reading room inspired by the crushed glass in Helen Martin's owl house. The large garden which is dotted with trees is a great place for kids to play, and the entertainment area is perfect for summer night barbeque's with new found friends.

Area Information:

Nieu-Bethesda (Dutch for New Bethesda) is a village in the Eastern Cape at the foot of the Sneeuberge, approximately 50 kilometres from Graaff Reinetand Middelburg. It was founded in 1875 as a church town, like many other Karoo villages, and attained municipal status in 1886. The name is of biblical origin (John 5:2-4) and means "place of flowing water" A natural spring and lei-water (furrow) system supply residents with crisp water, and provide the kind of soil perfect for roses, pear trees and weeping willows to thrive. It is a desert rose amongst the aloes of Graaff Reinet and Middleberg, each 50km away. Nieu Bethesda, however, is something quite special. Stuck in time, the town is a marvel. Here you will not find a tarred road, a petrol station or an ATM. What you will find is quirky residents, mysterious artists, donkeys, pear trees, and chats over coffee that last all day. You may find snow in the middle of summer, and you may find yourself never wanting to leave.

The Bushman Heritage Museum is a world class museum in addition to perfect quality gifts of quilts, pictures, amazing pillow cases and bags. The Tower B and B is excellent accommodation and food in quiet surroundings with remarkable landscape. Descendants of the bushmen tell you their amazing myths. Unforgettable.
