Mount Melsetter

Mount Melsetter has been a working Karoo farm, since 1877,and remains so today. The Karoo House, Mount Melsetter’s original farmstead, is a gracious country home in the heart of the Karoo, elegantly comfortable for guests and warmly hosted by Mike and Candy Ferrar. The Karoo has a rich heritage - palaeontological, historical, technical, architectural, floral and faunal, with information available in the House's Library, and from Mike and Candy too.

The Melsetter Library is a lovely tranquil room, under the gaze of a handsome Fallow Deer Buck. The library contains a wide selection of Fact and Fiction, reflecting a broad interest in spheres biographical, political, historical, travel, sport, some humour, and more, together with classic and contemporary fiction for both young and old.

The books in the library are, in the main, to be found on the shelves in the Library, but also a selection of books are in each bedroom, and on the shelves flanking the lovely stone fireplace in the main Lounge. Mount Melsetter has much of interest – a great place to get away to!
