Die Plek by Ockertskraal
Ladismith - Klein Karoo - Wes-Kaap
The Place is situated in the Klein Karoo wilderness between Ladismith and Riversdale, at the end of a private road in a beautiful secluded valley. Both our units are completely private, with each situated in it’s own unique setting in our valley. We welcome all well-behaved pets!
The Studio Flat (sleeps 2) is all about views of the vlaktes and koppies, Touwsriver valley, surrounding mountain ranges and breathtaking sunsets. Click here to find out more
Red Rock Cottage (sleeps 4 adults and 2 children) is situated in a secluded copse of trees at the foot of a beautiful red sandstone outcrop. The setting is sheltered and peaceful with views of nothing but acacias, Klein Karoo koppies and veld. Click here to find out more
The Place has been in our family since February 2011. Living here in this paradise wilderness has been one huge adventure - so much to do, learn, see, find...The Studio Flat forms part of the original ostrich chick building - we lovingly converted it whilst staying faithful to the building’s industrial origins and opened it for guests in November 2012. The Red Rock Cottage, originally a three-roomed workers cottage, was extended and renovated and opened for guests in September 2014. Our farm house was built in 1845 from adobe bricks made of local mud - we are in the process of renovating and modernising it.
Both the Studio Flat and Red Rock Cottage are fully equipped for self-catering. Freshly baked bread, farm eggs from our 100-percent free-range chickens and any other organic farm or locally produced fresh produce can be purchased when available.
Things to do include exploring the amazing variety of landscape features on the farm – the magical mini-valleys, dry river beds, fossils and strange succulents that make our landscape so unique. Here you can bird watch and star gaze to your heart's content.
