About Cavers Country Guest House
Set in the picturesque Cowie Valley, Cavers Country Guest House (4 star in the Guest House category) offers guests a unique opportunity to enjoy luxurious accommodation, warm hospitality and spectacular views of the tranquil surroundings.
Cavers is a fifth generation family-owned farm with one of the most beautiful gardens in South Africa, 16 km from the scenic village of Bedford. A stone double storey homestead, built in 1850, is used exclusively for guests.
From the kitchen comes fine country cuisine. Farm lamb, beef and venison, prepared to your preference with a home grown selection of fresh farm vegetables.
Candle-lit dinners are served in the dining room of the main stone double storey homestead. A traditional barbeque around the pool or in the veld under the African stars is also a favourite.
English or Continental breakfasts are served on the patio or in the guest dining room. Home made bread, butter, preserves, cheese and yogurts are offered.
The Guest House was opened in 1994 and, apart from minor alterations, the originality of the homestead has been maintained. Guests and friends from more than 25 countries world-wide have been accommodated since then.
The Bedford district is renowned as one of the premier stock farming areas in South Africa and also for abundant plains game and bird species. Cavers is a working stock farm with Merino sheep, Angora goats and a pedigree Holstein herd started in 1926 by Keith Ross. Milk is processed on the farm and products (yoghurt, amasi and cheese) are sold locally.
A garden festival is held annually during October when many of the beautiful gardens in the district are on show plus other activities which make the festival an event not to be missed.
