Melton Wold is a working sheep- and game farm and offers a complete holiday venue, away from the rush of big city life. Established in 1935, it is the oldest guest farm in South Africa.
All the rooms are equiped with a fan, panelheater, electric blanket and old fashioned radio. The farm produces its own livestock, especially Karoo lamb and springbuck, and is the foundation of excellent cuisine. Meals are NOT included in tariff. We are a family orientated guest farm. Perfect venue for weddings
Oasis of the Karoo!
Great stay! The stars were amazing and so quiet!
Melton Wold is amazing, historic and just simply magical! The drive to get to Melton Wold is a bit of a lengthy one, but good things come to those who wait, right?! We were pleasantly surprised at how welcome we were made to feel by possibly the best Airbnb host we've had so far! Thank you for everything Elsa, you are a gem! It would be unfair to just call this place old as it is very well maintained and so so clean! We probed with disbelief, but couldn't find a single cob web or layer of dust anywhere. Everything here is old school though there is a TV and wifi available in designated areas of the building. It is after-all South Africa's oldest guest house and it's location on a game farm makes it all the more romantic. I could write an essay on how beautiful this place is but you really have to see it for yourself. It reminded me a lot of the movie "about time" as it had a very classic family estate feel to it with generations of love and care given to it. Thank you for having us, Ronel!
