The Tradouw Guesthouse is situated in the heart of this small town. You can reach restaurants by feet without walking more than 5minutes. The guesthouse is surrounded with a big garden, lots of flowers and some cute, running chicken. Our room was comfortable and clean. If you like hiking, they can give you advice for some nice trails. Leon even...

What a lovely little guest house! We loved the cozy bedrooms, leafy outdoor breakfast area, quaint bar and fabulous company! Dennis and Leon were more than hospitable, showing us the downtown sights and restaurants in Barrydale. We miss Priscilla and hope she is doing well in Barrydale. I am sure those little chicks are almost full grown now. A must...

What a warm welcome by Dennis and Leon, they just make you feel home staight away. I visited with my friend Buddy who already came here before several times. The house and the garden are so beautifully decorated and the breakfast served in the backyeard is very delicious! A must when coming to the nice little town of Baridale!

Like many, many other people who return to this guesthouse again and again, this was a repeat visit. This time we were able to stay a few days & this was still not enough time to do all the great things Leon suggested! One could spend a good four or five days here and still find plenty to do, especially...

Visiting Tradouw Guesthouse was true experience. It is very personalized with a beautiful garden, a great breakfast under a vine covered pergola. Full of old world charm and hosted by loveable Leon and chef extraordinaire, Dennis. We will never stay anywhere else on Route 62.

Barrydale is like an oasis in the middle of nowhere on route 62. We were warmly greeted by Leon and shown to our room. Charming stable door overlooking their delightful garden, wonderfully maintained by the elusive Dennis!!

This is an amazing place, we were made to feel so welcome. Its a special place if only more places like this existed. Accomodation is comfortable and the garden a perfect spot to relax. Stay for at least two nights to discover the magic of the place and Barrydale.

This was our 4th stay and it is the most amazing B&B ever. The welcome from Leon and Denis sets the tone, with a stunning courtyard where breakfast is served and a relaxing garden. The bar is the centre of the evenings activity for residents. Such a relaxing place to be. Just the best!!

Unique location in the middle of nowhere, where we were warmly welcomed by the owners. Leon looked after us as a father. Fantastic attention to detail. The rooms are great. The gardens are so well maintained and everything is neat as a pin. We only wish we could have stayed longer.
