Very nice and comfortable stay in Oudtshoorn. Place is warm, the cottage is perfect and big. The staff is very professional. The dinner is ok, as the breakfast. Do not miss the visit to highgate farm, closer to De Denne.

This original farmhouse has space for groups or couples or singles: original wooden floors and high ceilings, lovely food and hospitality. Thanks for a lovely space to bond as a group and enjoy the unique area of the Klein Karoo.

We called the De Denne Guest house as we were approaching Oudtshoorn and they were able to accommodate us at short notice. We were met and shown our rooms which suited the farm style of the place. As it was the middle of winter and the Karoo is pretty cold we were pleased to find the room already heated for...

We keep coming back to De Denne because it’s such a lovely place and Johan and Louise are such nice people. The farm is about 15 miles outside Oudtshoorn, not too far to go in for dinner, yet you have the advantage of being out in the countryside. We love to sit on the patio and watch the sun set...
