About Housemartin Guest Lodge

Housemartin Guest Lodge has been AA Highly recommended and is located in the scenic village of De Rust, at the southern entrance to the magnificent Meiringspoort. This 110-year old Victorian manor house offers 12 en-suite luxury guest rooms, set in the garden.

Each luxury room features its own veranda leading onto the gardens, orchard and sparkling pool. In the rooms you will find Muscadel, homemade biscuits, tea, coffee, hot chocolate and magazines. Other features include percale bed linen, and in winter we offer underfloor heating in the bathrooms as well as mohair blankets and electric under blankets to keep you snug and warm. These can be enjoyed at the table and chairs on the private, covered verandas.

The atmosphere lures the guests into gentle relaxation after a day exploring the walking and biking trails in the area or birding, cycling and wine tasting on the local estates. Try driving through the sandstone peaks of one of the highest mountain ranges in South Africa, the amazing Swartberg, or meandering through the Kammanassie and Outeniquas.

The Meiringspoort is a must see and is abundant with fauna and flora. The waterfall is superb to swim in and a great place to have a sundowner.

                                                      Jan and Theresa are great hosts that will go out their way to make your stay enjoyable. Perfect spot to stay if taking part in the race which starts just up the road.

                                                      Housemartin is the perfect stopover - it's superbly clean and beautifully decorated in tasteful furnishings without being cluttered. Great shower and very comfortable bed.The one improvement that could be made is the checking in process. We were directed by the website to the entrance opposite the petrol station, then redirected around the corner where we received a gate code, only to be sent back to the first gate that we'd first gone to. It's not what you need after a five hour drive.

                                                      Had a stopover and were delighted. Theresa and Jan are very generous hosts. Lovely rooms and delightful garden and pool. Strongly recommended

                                                      The people who works there was friendly and very helpful. We enjoyed our stay and had no problems. We would go back there again and also recommend it to friends and family.

                                                      Die eienaars, Garth en Karen , het ons onmiddellik baie welkom laat voel. Veilige parkering met outomatiese hek .Wi-Fi. Ons kamer was luuks met ideale bed. Meubilair en linnen was eersteklas. Badkamer was van 'n hoog standaard. Ons sal seker weer tuisgaan by Housemartin by 'n volgende besoek!
