Eclectic rural charm

House, Entire place - Smithfield, South Africa

ID 45397


This charming, eccentric, century-old house easily sleeps a dozen people in four spacious comfortable suites (five bedroooms in total) all with private bathrooms. We are in easy walking distance of the village restaurants, offer fabulous country air, great sunsets and views of the vast open Free State sky spaces. Trading Places is sheltered by the local mountain - we offer guided hiking for the energetic, to see buck and other wild animals, interesting endemic birds, rock paintings by people who lived here long ago. The local golf course was laid out more than 100 years ago during the Anglo Boer War, by British officers occupying the village. Your host at Trading Places is a leading South African journalist and writer with a taste for meeting new people and sharing with them the delights of living in the countryside. We can accommodate four separate groups, or the house could be shared by one large party. Please note that this is not a self-catering facility, and meals are either provided by the hosts or at the local restaurants.
