Melton Wold Guest Farm

We are a working game and sheep farm. This holiday farm is situated on the R63 between Victoria West and Loxton. Accommodation is provided in a congenial 1889 farm house which is enlarged over the years.
Melton Wold is the oldest guest farm in South Africa – we first opened to guests in 1935.

We are the perfect venue for family holidays, weddings, conferences and big gettogethers! Melton Wold produces most of its own vegetables, bakes its own brown bread and makes its own preserves, as well as all the meat and venison coming from the farm itself, all of those form the foundation of our renowned cuisine. We spoil you every morning with a wakeup call, serving coffee or tea in your room! Whilst the children enjoy the activities on the farm, the parents can relax in our fully licensed ladies bar, The Deer and Pheasant!

The caravanpark opened in 2006. Melton Wold is our little piece of heaven in the heart of the Karoo. Come enjoy Karoo hospitality at its best on an historic farm where time seems to stand still.
