The oldest guest farm in South Africa - since 1938. Melton Wold is our little piece of heaven in the heart of the Karoo, come enjoy Karoo hospitality at its best on an historic farm where time seems to stand still.
Numerous activities are available at Melton Wold, a large games room compliments lawns and gardens which surround the tennis court, bowling green and trampoline. There is also a rustic swimming pool and for the more actively inclined, there are walks and mountain bike rides in the quiet crystal air of the sunny Karoo. In the evenings adults can relax in a comfortable lounge and an attractive ladies bar, "The Deer and Pheasant".
Put away your woes and worries for a week or so. Turn out all disturbing thoughts and let your troubles go. If you’re on a holiday and have no work to do – it will not restore you if your mind’s not resting too.
It is good to be at leisure in the sun to sit, but it will not give you any lasting benefit – if you have a lot of things you’re bothering about. Problems come a-rushing in unless you shut them out.
It is not enough to get away from the routine. You must find an inward peace and make your mind serene….
Do not let your thoughts go working down the same old tracks. Give your brain a holiday. Stop worrying. Relax. Patience Strong - July, 1966.
