Eighteen Sixty One Accommodation

Welcome to Eighteen Sixty One Accommodation. We lie nestled in a natural basin surrounded by scenic Karoo koppies that paint the perfect picture against the colourful sunset skies of Colesberg. Located in Stockenstroom Square, a safe and quiet neighborhood that forms part of the historic part of town. The old cottage building dates back to 1861 and was preserved well over the years, still brimming with character to this day. We are within walking distance of a park, picturesque churches and multiple locally owned restaurants where you will be met with customary Karoo hospitality.

We have three separate units, all equipped with smart televisions connected to our free 10mb/s WiFi network so you can stay up to date with all the latest shows on Netflix and Showmax. We also offer a communal braai area in the far back corner of the property at the foot of the koppie where you can view the iconic NG Church tower peeking through the olive tree groves while the ducks and chickens graze underneath, adding the final touch to a true farm feeling while still being close to all the necessary amenities. Our guests are free to pick fruit from our multiple fruit trees at their own risk and within reason.


The Family unit (Unit 1) is the old cottage that can house up to 5 people. It consists of a kitchen with a gas stove, microwave, full size fridge and coffee & tea facilities. A lounge area with a daybed, a bedroom with a double bed, a second bedroom with two single beds and a bathroom with a shower. It also has a private street facing patio with an orange tree and a park bench in the enclosed front garden.

The Singles unit (Unit2) has two single beds, en suite shower, a lounge area including a mini kitchen with a bar fridge, a microwave and coffee & tea facilities. It has a small patio in the front with a bistro table and chairs where you can sit back and relax with a cup of coffee under the old apricot tree.

The Couples unit (Unit 3) is the old stables that was remodeled into a quaint and romantic sleeping chamber and separate adjoining bathroom with a shower. The room has a queen size bed, bar fridge, microwave and coffee & tea facilities. It also has a porch with bistro table and chairs and a bench in the garden where you can sit and enjoy the sound of the birds chattering away in the treetops.

So after a long day on the road, stop over at Eighteen Sixty One and take some time away from the hustle and bustle to relax and unwind in an old farm style setting before completing the rest of your journey well rested and recharged in the morning.
