I recently stayed at De Denne for a wedding taking place on the farm, and from getting out of my car to leaving the property I was greeted with big smiles. Everyone is very helpful and friendly and the facilities were great! My room in particular was amazing, way more than I expected, big room, big bathroom with kitchen-net that... More

We keep coming back to De Denne because it’s such a lovely place and Johan and Louise are such nice people. The farm is about 15 miles outside Oudtshoorn, not too far to go in for dinner, yet you have the advantage of being out in the countryside. We love to sit on the patio and watch the sun set... More

We stayed one night at De Denne in December 2013. The room was booked for us by the Oudtshoorn Tourist Office who gave us a choice of several options. The farm is about 10 mins away by car from Oudtshoorn. To get there we travelled mostly on metalled roads but the final part was on a gravel road, with some... More

I stayed with my mother for one night at the De Denne Country Guest House. The guest house is quite far away from the city of Oudtshoorn and could only be reached by an untarred road.
