Walkerbouts Inn – Rhodes is a spacious country retreat with comfortable accommodation in 6 bedrooms each with en-suite facilities as well as a cosy, well-stocked pub.
We source as many of our kitchen supplies from our own or local gardens where fresh herbs and vegetables are grown, weather permitting. To add to the fresh garden produce in season, we also use locally produced, succulent chicken, lamb and beef for our table. The cosy “Thankshjalot Pub” could keep you entertained for hours, if only the walls could talk!
Walkerbouts is located in the historic village of Rhodes which is situated at the southernmost tip of the Drakensberg mountain range, 16km due south of the border with the mountain Kingdom of Lesotho. The village is more than 1800m above sea level, located on the banks of the Bell River.
The nearest town is Barkly East which is 60km away on a narrow and winding gravel road that must be driven with care.
Thus, Rhodes is a remote village almost frozen in time, a relic from the past. The unique nature of the architecture in the village finds it’s origins in the Victorian era and is a compromise between fashion, availability of materials and practicality. As of July 1997 the village was proclaimed as a Conservation Area.
