Bedford South Africa - A vibrant country district famous for our annual Garden Festival (second-to-last weekend in October), fun-loving farmers and fabulous hospitality, Bedford is waiting to welcome you.
The historic village is tucked up against the Kaggaberg mountain (part of the Winterberg range) and our farms stretch across extensive grasslands and up into the dramatic Mankazana, Cowie and Baviaans River valleys. Angoras, merinos, beef cattle, goats and game are to be seen all over.
Bird watching, hiking, cycling, fishing, golf, tennis, bowls and bridge are among the local activities we invite you to join. Our area is a treasure trove if your passion is history, botany or geology.
We are very green, setting an example with our eco-friendly kitchen gardens and boasting several plant nurseries and the SA Rosarium (a national collection of old roses.
Our raconteurs tell a story better than anyone in the Eastern Cape and our legendary cooks, inspired by local produce, never fail to amaze.
Huge skies, fresh air, friendly people and overwhelming natural beauty bring our visitors back again. Some end up staying forever.
