  • Coming in to Prince Albert from the N1...
Prince Albert is the prettiest of all Karoo towns. Nestled at the foot of the majestic Swartberg Mountains, at the very edge of the Great Karoo, Prince Albert is a very special place where people come to find tranquility, inspiration and the Lamb, fruits, cheeses and hospitality for which the region is famous. It is also very much still a working “dorp” with a vibrant and diverse local community.

Your hosts, Pete and Megan, would like you to feel that this is a relaxing home away from home. Share our passion for the Karoo and our property! Feel free to wander through our huge fruit and veggie garden and olive orchards (and pick from it for your dinner!). The kids will love to visit our animals in their free range home and are welcome to help at feeding time. There are no streetlights or town noises to spoil that special Karoo tranquility…


There are 4 spacious cottages set in a peaceful garden. Each are decorated with a touch of the old Karoo with attention to detail and interesting rustic little touches.

Special care has been taken to give you home away from home comforts – quality linen, comfy beds, extra blankets, hot water bottles and heaters for those chilly winter nights and fans for the Karoo summer.

We were travelling with our 2 Miniature Schnauzers. Megan closed a gate or 3 and suddenly our dogs had the whole yard to themselves! The facilities were clean and neat, and something we'd love to make use of again!
Superb. 5 out of 5

Thank you Pete and Megan for a magical stay at your guest house. It is a bit like stepping back into history with its olde world charm. Your home made apricot jam is beyond delicious and all the veggies bought at the market were wonderful, a whole new cooking experience for me. The Karoo Kombuis also served us the most incredible dinner in the most beautiful old fashioned little restaurant. These 2 establishments are sooo worth visiting again. Many thanks for your hospitality. Fred +Bev

The variety of things to do from hiking to cycling down a mountain, wine tasting, general relaxing in the various restaurant / gift shops. HIGHLIGHT SWARTBERG PASS!

Prince Albert is a lovely little town at the foot of the Swartberg Mountains.
What struck me in particular is how clean the streets are and the friendliness of the locals.
We went to a movie in “The Showroom” and were surprised to find such an amazing Art deco gem in the middle of the Karoo. “The Showroom” boasts state-of-the-art theatre and cinema equipment, making it suitable to facilitate and attract some of the country’s top performers.
Superb. 5 out of 5
