Stellenhof Farmstay Bed and Breakfast

Accommodation in Addo

Stellenhof was built during the late 1800’s by Mr Dougal McBean. Sir Percy Fitzpatrick author of Jock of the Bushveld , got together a group of people to buy land in the Addo area. Some didn’t stay long for the promised amount of water was not delivered at that stage. Sir Percy Fitzpatrick built a big dam to resolve this issue as it was a time of little rainfall and drought.  This farm was originally designed to grow oranges and grapefruit.  Many farms in our area still do the same.

The house was designed to stay cool during the hot Addo Summers. Mr McBean was a perfectionist in every way, whether it was building his house, running the farm or buying antiques.  He had a love for Polo, so he started a Polo Ground in Addo which still exists today. The farm was sold in 1960 and traded owners a three more times.

In 1999 we (The Groenhof Family) bought the property and decided to share the rich history, beautiful landscape and amazing wildlife with our very special guests.  Today you have the opportunity to stay in Addo at our Farmstyle Bed and Breakfast Accommodation.  We take pleasure in inviting you into our home.
