heatlands is a magical place. It is a working farm that is steeped in 8 generations of family history. Come and experience the comfort and luxury of Wheatland’s Country House. The “Big House” as it is known to family was built in 1912 by Arthur Tucker Parkes for his wife Lily with ostrich feather income. The house boasts high, pressed ceilings, wood paneled walls, beautiful handcrafted stained glass windows, book line corridors and antiques that have been collected throughout the various generations.
Set on a beautiful Karoo farm, Wheatlands Country House is in the heart of the Eastern Cape, 50 km south of the attractive town of Graaff-Reinet. Accommodation is exceptionally comfortable in the large, antique furnished rooms and the delicious food that is served in the sizable dining room has been acclaimed in many a national magazine and newspaper. Snuggle up in the corner with a book and enjoy the house’s peaceful atmosphere, go for a walk in the veld and appreciate the natural beauty of your surroundings or chat to your charming hosts Diana and Kirsten Short.
At least our 6th visit since 1997 and it gets better every time. Lovely to meet David and Kirsten this time. We really appreciate the way you make us feel at home. Missed you Di!
