A bit of history
Maps to the Farm
Originally purchased by settler Martin Melck in 1770, Kersefontein farm, with its fine old Cape Dutch homestead and rambling outbuildings, has been worked by eight generations of the Melck family.
Now a National Monument, little has changed in terms of beauty, tranquillity and isolation.
Present custodian and farmer Julian Melck has converted a number of farm buildings into luxurious rooms and suites for Bed and Breakfast, and self-catering accommodation.
Guests are invited to relax and enjoy Kersefontein's unique and romantic heritage, or explore the thousands of hectares of farmland and river plains, all in a style and comfort which will complement the peace and magic of a wonderful place.
