About Stuurmansfontein Corbelled House

Stuurmansfontein Corbelled House is situated near Carnarvon in the Karoo and has been restored to its former glory to provide guests with an experience of the way life was over 200 years ago. This National Monument offers guests three bedrooms; two furnished with double beds and the other room with two single beds.

The shared bathroom features a large wash basin for bathing and water needs to be boiled for hot water, while the outdoors shower only has cold water. Water is pumped from the fountain to the house with the use of a "windpomp" and the house has a modern flush toilet, as well as a long-drop away from the house. The kitchen is fully equipped, with a Dover stove and a gas fridge and stove. Guests can also relax in the lounge and enjoy the old world feel of the Corbelled House or do their cooking or have a barbecue in the asbosskerm, which is only found in the Karoo.

The Corbelled House is available for self-catering or bed and breakfast and dinner is available on request. Situated on a farm, guests have wide open space to go for walks or cycle along the paths, while the lack of electricity ensures that guests will enjoy beautiful starry nights. For absolute peace, tranquility and security, no better retreat will be found than Stuurmansfontein Corbelled House.

      Having read about Stuurmansfontein Corbelled House in a magazine some 3/4 years ago, I always wanted to visit, as it looked like a very special place to stay at. This year presented the opportunity as I was driving through the Karoo.From the warm welcome from Piet and Charmaine to the moment I had to leave, it was the most extraordinary experience in that meticulously restored and furnished white house. With no electricity, only gas and candles, and no cellphone reception or wifi, and the expansive Karoo views, it provides a sense of peace, tranquillity and security like no other. And looking...

      Stuurmansfontein is an absolute gem. Spotlessly clean with thoughtful touches from Charmaine - fresh herbs, rusks, mosbolletjies... The outdoor shower and swimming dam make a big difference in the sweltering heat. We'll be back to spend a few days here and really enjoy the stark environment and the resident Cinnamon-breasted Warblers.

      We loved our stay at Stuurmansfontein. The night sky was something we will never forget. The accommodation offered everything we needed. We would gladly return to stay longer.

      A remote and private but very special place about 4 km away from the farmhouse. Ideal for a 2 Night stay (or longer if used as a base for exploring the Karoo) on self catering basis. Arrive early and consider driving time of nearly one hour from Carnavon. A historic building but with modern comforts.
