About Gardiol Country House

Gardiol Country House is a working farm, with large gardens offering peace, tranquility and rural serenity.
We have luxurious, fresh, country rooms and plenty of space to relax and unwind.

There are four spacious luxury rooms and all have an en-suite bathroom, are decorated with fresh percale linen and styled with contemporary country decor. The rooms have a hospitality tray, fresh drinking water, toiletries, heating/cooling/electric blankets, DSTV & free WIFI. There is one self-catering cottage, sleeping a max of two adults and two children under 18.

Wander around the sprawling park-like garden with its Oak and Yellowwood trees, seasonal vegetable garden and interesting bird life. The farm has historical connections to the Craib and Hofmeyr families, as well as to the Gardiol Oaks at Boschendal and Delville Wood. Enjoy the fresh air and rural charm of a working farm, which is conveniently close (4 km) to the town of Somerset East.

An excellent base and within easy reach for day visits to three National Parks; the Addo Elephant Park, The Mountain Zebra National Park (Cradock) and the Camdeboo National Park (Graaff-Reinet)

Family friendly: Park-like garden with beautiful trees, bird-life, natural vegetable gardens. Collect fresh eggs, pick seasonal berries, feed the ducks and chickens, be part of a working sheep and irrigation farm.
