Pastures Cottage ( Sleeps 4 )

 

Welcome to our beautiful, newly built 4-sleeper. This special unit is in-fact built within one of our grazing pastures, and frequently has very curious Oakhurst cows come up to the fence to welcome our new guests.

 

Pastures has two spacious queen rooms, each with a private bathroom. Both bedrooms and living spaces have large slider windows, boasting beautiful views of the rolling pastures and mountains. The living room and one of the two bedrooms, opens up onto an expansive wooden deck, offering incredible, uninterrupted views. This unit has a large built in braai, a secluded outdoor shower and a private wood-fired hot tub, that is located just a step off of the stoep. We add a large amount of complimentary wood, so that you can get the braai and hot tub going as soon as you arrive!

 

Pastures Cottage boasts the perfect balance of indoor & outdoor living and dining, and is certainly the perfect place to find peace and tranquillity away from the daily hustle and bustle. This is a fully self-catering unit that offers all that is needed to make your stay as comfortable as possible! Percale linen, bath towels and soaps, as well as free WIFI are included with your stay.

 

 

 

The Forge ( sleeps 6 )

 

 

 

At 180+ years old, The Forge is one of the oldest buildings on the farm. Authentic in every way, this charming cottage boasts thick stone walls and exposed timber beams.

 

It features two spacious bedrooms with king-size beds (one bedroom has a wheelchair-friendly en-suite bathroom). There are two additional single beds for kids in a loft room, as well as a second shared bathroom.

 

The living area wraps around the cottage, and comprises a fully-equipped kitchen with gas stove, dining area and super cosy lounge with wood-burning stove. The living area opens out via glass doors onto a quaint covered deck with beautiful views across the open fields towards the forest.

 

With its secluded, outdoor shower and private plunge pool, The Forge is perfect for bridesmaids groups and of course, the bridal couple.

 

Firewood, percale linen, bath towels, soaps and unlimited
WiFi are all included.

 

 

 

 

Farm Cottages ( 5 Units - each sleeps 6 )

 

 

 

Our Farm Cottages have been a part of Oakhurst for the past 30 years.

Kween’s Kaya, Awies Attic, Lenies Lair, Hans’s Hollow and Nick’s Nook site alongside each other (15 m apart), separated by hedges. The cottages enjoy a fantastic position along the forest’s edge. A gurgling stream gently meanders through the area, flowing more strongly after the rain.

 

The cottages have fully-equipped kitchens and welcoming living areas that open onto large wooden decks with private braai areas. Tuck into a moreish meal around the large wooden table or simply soak up the peaceful farm vibes and enjoy Oakhurst’s fine mountain air.

 

Each cottage has three bedrooms - one self-contained double room and two twin rooms. The twin bedrooms and inter-leading and the second twin room is accessed via the first. Each cottage has a shared bathroom with shower. Garden Route winters can be cold; a roaring fire in the kitchen’s wood-burning stove sets the perfect scene for a cosy night in.

 

Linen, towels and unlimited WiFi are all included.


 

 

 

The Schoolyard ( 3 units - each sleeping 5)

 

 

Once the school rooms for Oakhurst’s farm children, this building has been lovingly restored and converted into three fully-equipped, semi-detached, character-packed units, each with a double and twin bedroom.

 

Landon’s Loft, Holly’s Hangout and Anna’s Apartment all have kitchenettes, a bathroom with showers, and private patios with braai areas.

 

Take Note: Holly's Hangout and Anna's Apartment are inter-leading via internal doors, making them ideal for two families or groups which want to be close together.

 

Linen, towels and unlimited WiFi are all included.

 

 

 


Africamps glamping tents ( each sleeps 5 )

 

 

The ultimate in luxury camping, the eight Africamps at Oakhurst tents come fully stocked with every creature comfort you could possibly want: two queen beds and a single bunk bed (suitable for adults), fully-equipped kitchen, lounge and dining area, deck and braai area, air-conditioner and indoor fireplace, and a special treat in the form of private wood-fired hot tubs.

 

Linen, towels and unlimited WiFi are included.

Our wedding on Oakhurst Farm surpassed what we had envisioned for our day. We had the ceremony in the beautiful church, which was built in the early 1800s. The raw beauty of the farm’s landscape made the outdoor setting perfect for the reception. What we loved most was creating a relaxed, homey space between the trees. We are forever grateful towards you for helping make our wedding the most magical weekend. thank you!

The graceful All Saints Church on the beautiful Oakhurst Farm was the location of our wedding. The magnificent Outeniqua Mountains act as the perfect background to the church, which is set partway along a striking avenue of trees in a rural idyll of long green grass, happy cows, dams, hay bales and horses. The Oakhurst staff were professional, helpful and cheerful and were a large part of the success of the wedding weekend.

From the initial enquiry into a wedding at Oakhurst through to our special day, we could not have asked for more. The service from Oakhurst, the attention to detail, the beautiful setting, relaxed vibe and impeccable accommodation made this the perfect place to host our guests. The historic chapel and breathtaking open-air setting made for the most wonderful evening with family and friends. Oakhurst made the memories.
