Die Letterhuis

Die Letterhuis is situated on the farm Aswater on the R407 in the Karoo.


The farm is a place of retreat. The house itself  is a beautiful, cosy calligraphic gallery and guest house surrounded by art walks. At night it is enveloped by spectacular starry skies  Die Letterhuis is one of three accommodation options on the farm.

For the more adventurous, we offer catch and release fishing, bird watching' easy hiking and swimming in the dam


‘n Huis vol letters, ‘n omgewing gesaai met letterkuns uitgekap in klip, gebedsroetes en landkuns installasies, kort staproetes, 'n menigte voëlspesies, 'n dam om in te swem en vis te vang en 'n pragtige kampterrein. Kom kyk!
