Come and enjoy the bright stars and peaceful surroundings of the Karoo at the Oude Pastorie Guesthouse (N12 Diamond route and halfway between north and south)
De Oude Pastorie was the first parsonage of the Dutch Reformed Church in Victoria West. Both the (building) plans of the church and the parsonage were accepted on the same night in September 1846. According to the minutes, the cypress trees in front of the house are even older than the building itself. The Church Counsil asked the first Minister, W.A. Krige, to help with the plan of the parsonage. They decided it was too big. IN 1899 they had built four more rooms because the minister of that time had seven children! In later years the house was also used as a boardinghouse. The present owners bought the house in June 2001 and restored it. It opened as a guesthouse on 29 September 2001.
De Oude Pastorie has 5 rooms with en-suite bathrooms and private entrances. Each room has its own tea and coffee facilities and fan / electric blanket. We also have a lovely lounge with TV and fire place.
We serve a nice Karoo dinner with lamb chops or venison and desert (see rates page for prices). If you really want to do your own thing - we have "braai" facilities too.
There is a playground on the premises as well as show poultry - we find that children love it!
We have safe parking and are within walking distance from the Apollo Theatre (the only art deco theatre in the country), hiking trails, museum (with fish fossils) library and some of the restaurants.
De Oude Pastorie is wheelchair friendly.
