"Die Ou Huisie"


Eugene and Alta Heyns offer old-fashioned hospitality on the farm Tienfontein. Tienfontein B&B is a four star establishment and is rated SUPERIOR accommodation by the AA. The farm is situated on the R26 main road halfway between the two towns of Zastron and Rouxville: 12 km from Zastron and 18 km from Rouxville. The farm lies in a picturesque Free State valley, wide and peaceful, with sandstone hills. At the back of the homestead is a koppie where different nomadic bands of Bushmen used to dwell. They left their telltale signs behind for you to find. Die Ou Huisie is where you will stay. It is a quaint sandstone cottage, built around 1880. It withstood several ravages of the Anglo Boer War, including an attempt to set it alight during those turbulent times.


“Die Ou Huisie” at Tienfontein is a unique experience. Eugene and Alta are ready to welcome you into a different world. The old fashioned atmosphere is the first thing that will strike you when  you enter the restored cottage: the exquisite Africana furniture, the large yellow-wood dining table, the yellow wood ceiling and beams and memorabilia from days gone by. There are four cosy bedrooms which can accommodate seven people in all. There are two separate bathrooms with hot water and an equipped kitchen for your convenience. The cottage is fully equipped with bed linen, cutlery, crockery and towels. We offer bed and breakfast or self catering and dinner on request. In summer the pool area is a tranquil place and the beautiful garden a haven for many birds.


Come here to experience truly fresh air and a night sky bar none. Whether you want to relax in tranquillity for a day or two, or rest halfway en route to another destination, Tienfontein will answer to your needs.
