..... a Karoo Experience.

Erin is a place of stoeps, sunsets, stars and silence, on the N9, 10 km south of Middelburg, Eastern Cape en-route to Graaff-Reinet. Middelburg stands on the eastern edge of the Great Karoo, the vast central plateau of South Africa, with landscapes on a grand scale, sweeping skies and wide horizons. Erin is safe and secure as well as child and pet-friendly.

COUNTRY HOUSE - The Edwardian homestead, set in a Karoo country garden and built in the early 1900's, has withstood the harsh elements of Africa and her thick walls have given sanctuary to many.  Two private and spacious en-suite double rooms with wooden floors and high ceilings, are available—one with bath and one with shower  The wrap-around stoep offers a cool and relaxing respite from the heat of the day and a perfect spot from where to enjoy the dazzling display of stars at night.
