Had the pleasure to spend two nights at the beautiful Berluda guest house in Schoemanshoek, Oudtshoorn. Room and bathrooms are spacious and well appointed. A spa bath was a welcome bonus. Stunning gardens on the property. Great food and very friendly and attentive staff. Most enjoyable stay. Highly recommended.
Nestled in the foothills of the Swartberg Mountains on a typical Little Karoo farm, you will find Berluda Farmhouse and Cottages. Enjoy a comfortable and relaxing stay with luxurious touches, personal service and South African hospitality.
Our family history in the area dates back 200 years, when the Schoeman ancestors started leaving their footprints in the valley. Today we are proud to share this valley with you when you visit our farm. The name Berluda is derived from an apricot variety, and today the annual harvest and jam production still forms a central part of our business.
Authentic experiences on the farm for the whole family range from working ostrich farm tours, sunset drives and meerkat encounters. As the Little Karoo is part of the Cape Floral Kingdom, our guests can have a close encounter with this unique fauna and flora. We also offer exceptional bird-watching opportunities, and star gazing – offering the “High Five”. Trigger all your senses with our rejuvenating spa treatments, in our tranquil garden setting or therapy room.
Our local restaurant specializes in signature ostrich and Karoo lamb dishes like you’ve never tasted before.
As Berluda lies just off the R62, the longest wine route in the world, we invite you to come and pair our local Little Karoo cuisine with award-winning wines and ports from the region. Within easy reach of the world heritage site of the Swartberg Mountain pass and the world famous Cango Caves, Berluda is perfectly situated to explore the Little Karoo.
