About De Oude Meul Self Catering Country Lodge and B&B

"Little paradise or Oasis" are often words used by guests to describe this little piece of land nestled at the Swartberg foothills.

Surrounded by mountains, river streams with weeping willow trees and a variety of flowers in full bloom, you will find the peace and tranquility you are looking for.

In the late afternoon a variety of wild buck feed on the lawns surrounding the property. Frogs will break the silence of the approaching evenings with their chirps and be awoken by birds announcing the start of a brand new day. Nature at its best!

                                          My wife and I stayed at De Oude Meul for 2 nights. We had a very warm welcome and the hosts very friendly. The accommodation was very comfortable and spacious and very clean and neat. The mountainous surroundings with the views of the whole complex was stunning. Its a perfect place to relax and not to have any worries in the world. Breakfast was great. We really enjoyed our stay at De Oude Meul and the hospitality in Oudtshoorn was fabulous.

                                          Loved every second of it. Clean rooms and super friendly staff all around.

                                          Very luxurious...would have appreciated a bath in the winter though. But otherwise everything was top of the range

                                          Everything was perfect. We ate good meals, the bedrooms were comfortable and nicely equipped as well as the kitchenette. I got exactly more than what I expected.
