About Wheatlands Country House
Wheatlands Country House, built in 1912, is a five-bedroom guest house set on a beautiful Karoo working mohair and wool farm in the heart of the Eastern Cape. We are just 50 km south of the attractive town of Graaff-Reinet.
The house boasts high-pressed ceilings, wood-panelled walls, hand-crafted stained glass windows, book-lined corridors and antiques that have been collected through the generations. Exceptionally comfortable accommodation is provided in large, antique-furnished rooms and delicious food is served in the sizeable dining room that has been acclaimed in many a national magazine and newspaper.
Snuggle up in the corner with a book and enjoy the house’s peaceful atmosphere or go for a walk in the veld and appreciate the natural beauty of your surroundings.
We regret that there are no credit card facilities.
