Make it a destination or a pit stop.


The Post Office:

The old Post Office has been lovingly restored and renovated to provide comfortable accommodation across the four en-suite bedrooms.

With furniture produced on the farm itself from Blackwood as well as Oregon pine ceilings and floors with yellow wood beams, the characteristic features of the building are accentuated with modern fittings taking the otherwise rustic trappings into the 21st century. Rooms have separate entrances for convenience and each has access to a stunning traditional porch ideal for late afternoon reading and relaxing.

Welsch House:

The stunning Welsch House comprises two separate en-suite bedrooms with their own entrances adjoining a self-catering family unit. The rooms have wooden floors and reeded ceilings which make for cool summer temperatures and a rustic feel.

Located on an elevated section of the farm, wonderful vistas of the valley can be enjoyed from the vine covered veranda. A braai area with swimming pool is situated alongside the Welsch House.

House of Grace:

Built from stone and mud during the construction of the Montagu Pass, the House of Grace has been restored to maintain its original beauty with modern necessities being subtly added over the years.

The cottage sleeps six people with two double beds, two single beds, a small kitchen, bathroom, braai facilities and has the most incredible view of the majestic Outeniqua mountains.


Police Station:

The old Police Station has been transformed into a stunning dining area and lounge which despite renovations boasts original features including the wooden floors, doors and windows adding to the charm of this already idyllic space.


Luxurious accommodation and stunning surrounds are complimented by a handy set of facilities, taking Over The Mountain's already generous offerings a step further.


Secure and convenient parking is made available to guests staying in any of the suites. Hiking is available during your stay but you shouldn't have to hike to your room!


A Wi-Fi internet connection is available in the reception area for those looking to keep up with emails or wanting to post about their phenomenal holiday on Facebook or Twitter. Remember to tag us if you do!

Pool and Braai Facilities:

There is a lovely pool on property with ample seating or sunbathing space as well as braai (barbecue) facilities for those wanting to make the most of a hot day.


A delectable 3 course meal is made available on request which promises to please any food enthusiasts. The menu changes from night to night so expect something fresh and interesting every evening. Dietary requirements can be discussed with your hosts on arrival.

Satellite TV:

Local satellite providers, DStv offer an incredibly wide range of programming from popular sports and movie channels to celebrity gossip and local news. Satellite TV is available in the Main Lounge and promises to keep any sports fans or film buffs happy during their stay.

Tea Garden:

A breathtaking Tea Garden forms part of the property, where guests are welcome to relax out in the fresh mountain air. Coffee, tea, scones, cake and toasted sandwiches are served on request.
