About Erin Farmhouse & Cottages
Managed by owners, Trevor and Kathy, Erin is a child and pet friendly Farm Stay on the Eastern Edge of the Great Karoo, the vast central plateau of South Africa, with landscapes on a grand scale, sweeping skies and wide horizons. Conveniently situated 10 km south of Middelburg in the Eastern Cape, midway between Johannesburg and Cape Town and off the N9, Erin offers the perfect en-route stopover for a tranquil farm break for those wanting to experience wonderful vistas, champagne air, magical African sunsets, as well as star-studded night skies. Erin is a relaxed, unassuming and modest farm stopover which is down-to earth but comfortable. With six accommodation options (some inter-leading and ideal for group stays), all the units have fans and heaters but not air-conditioning. There are no televisions or radios in the rooms, so guests can have a break from the rat-race and unwind while appreciating the fresh air, space and serenity.At the end of day, you can marvel at the multi coloured sunsets which dim over Renosterberg Mountain and later, watch the dazzling display of stars in the velvet night sky. Enjoy a traditional Karoo dinner or farm breakfast in the Barnyard dining area. All meals are served by prior arrangement and breakfast is served from 07h00. Erin is not licensed, so we suggest you bring along your own alcoholic and soft drinks.
