THE COSIEST FIREPLACES IN THE KAROO HEARTLAND THIS WINTER

As South Africa moves passes midwinter and the thermometer starts its slow climb towards summer, we ponder two things: firstly, that the winter days of the Karoo Heartland are mild, sunny and windless and, secondly, when things turn chilly in the evenings, our region naturally tends indoors towards the fireplace, coffee or wine in hand, for a good book, some painting or quality conversation. 

Our Karoo Heartland members have shared some of their cosiest spots to enjoy winter in the Karoo…

The fireplace at Allendale Guest Farm…just getting started. – Jansenville

A fireside dinner table set for guests (pre-COVID) at Glen Avon Guest Farm – Somerset East

A cosy lounge at Kuzuko Lodge, with a breathtaking view of the night sky only metres away… – Somerset East

A welcoming farmhouse living room at Lowlands Country House – Cradock

Potjie pot at the ready – there’s nowhere better than Nieu-Bethesda for a slow-cooked stew at Outsiders B&B

A cosy reading nook, barman on hand, at Samara Private Game Reserve – Graaff Reinet

An iconic Karoo Heartland fireplace at Toerboer Cottages – Graaff Reinet

A bonus pleasure during the winter months – a wood-fired stove at Toerboer Cottages – Graaff Reinet
