The Appelhuis is a picturesque self-catering cottage with a generous stoep offering magnificent views over the Langeberg mountains. Surrounded by peach and prune orchards, it is a comfortable and romantic retreat from the everyday hustle and bustle.

The Appelhuis was built in the 1930s as a store room for apples and has a thatched roof, thick walls and wooden loft boards. In 2002 it was converted into a cottage to accommodate the third Smit generation returning to Doornrivier to farm. When it became too small for a growing family, it proved to be perfect as guest accommodation.

The Appelhuis sleeps 7 and features two en suite bedrooms with double beds and fine white linen. The large main bedroom also has a single bed. A spacious open plan living area consists of a well-equipped kitchen, dining area with table and chairs, and a lounge with TV, indoor fireplace and two additional single beds. The cottage has underfloor heating and BBQ facilities.


The cozy Damhuis perches on the edge of the farm dam and is a rustic, one-room cottage with a kitchenette and a bathroom with shower.

The Damhuis sleeps 4 (in single beds) and has a wooden deck with BBQ facilities overhanging the water.  With its no-nonsense atmosphere, the cottage is ideal for informal (water-loving) family get-aways.

Located on a working fruit farm off the R62 near Barrydale, are two diverse cottages in a charming farm setting: the Appelhuis and the Damhuis on Doornrivier Farm.

Veilig geleë in die berg-omringde Doornriviervallei tussen vrugteboorde, bied die Appelhuis, Withuis en damhuis ‘n unieke plaaswegbreek ervaring, stilte, vars lug en wandelroetes. Dit kan ook as basis gebruik word om Barrydale & die R62 se vele besienswaardighede te ontdek.

Experience the serenity and safety of a quiet Klein Karoo fruit farm, 7km from Barrydale on the R62-route. The Appelhuis is a beautifully restored old stone cottage, surrounded by orchards and mountains in the Doornriver Valley.
