Budget Getaways Review

A large working Overberg farm is the setting for Oorvloed Campsite and Guesthouse. It’s big sky country here with swathes of wheat fields and wide open spaces. The farm slopes gently down to the banks of the Breede River, where you’ll find the campsite…but more about that later.

First up, let’s take a look at the guesthouse portion of the Oorvloed platter. This large and spacious farm house is your classic abode of the 1960/70’s. Massive spaces, solid build and perfect for a large family or even two families sharing. The house is neat and tidy and has been modernised with comfortable bedding and furnishings and well equipped with everything you’d need for a super relaxed stay. There are four bedrooms in total, a double (ensuite), a queen room and two twin bedrooms.

Bathroom wise you’ve got two bathrooms with showers and loo’s. All towels and linen are supplied. The large living area leads through to a separate dining room with dining table and built in braai / fireplace. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need for self-catering.

Outdoors you’ve got a patio with braai (wood is available to purchase on the farm) and lovely views out over the farm, as well as a large lawn for the kids. There’s also a splash pool to ease off the summer heat.

Moving along to the campsite, situated some distance from the guesthouse, down on the river banks. The campsite offers three two-man canvas dome tents, which have two single beds and mattresses inside each. The tents are equipped with lighting and a bedside table. You’ll need to bring along your own bedding and towels. Additional campers can bring their own tents, with the site's maximum number of guests being 10. Ablution facilities are shared and are made up of a wash basin, loo and shower. It's back to basics here, you'll need to heat your hot water in the “donkey boiler”, wood is supplied for this.

Keeping busy on the farm focusses around the river, with fishing, swimming and canoeing all on tap (there are two kayaks supplied). There are plenty of mountain biking and walking options on the farm as well. Further afield there’s Malgas and Swellendam roughly the same distance away.

A great option for your next Overberg outing, and with all this space and accommodation you may as well bring the whole family, in-laws and neighbours as well. Like the name suggests, this getaway can handle the ‘oorvloed”.
