Beracah Cottage is found on a privately owned sheep and cattle farm, situated on the escarpment in the Thomas River area, between Stutterheim and Cathcart, in the Eastern Cape of South Africa.

The terrain is typical rugged South African grassveld and thornveld where Springbok, Mountain Reedbuck, Duiker and Blesbuck can be spotted. Other small animals such as Warthog, Jackals, the odd Mongoose or Meerkat can also be seen while you are exploring.

Birders can enjoy a variety of Birdlife and some bigger species that may be spotted are: the Cape Vulture, African harrier-hawk (Gymnogene), Jackal Buzzard, the Blue Crane, the Crowned (Crested) Crane, and Secretary Birds,  amongst others.


Mountain Biking has become very popular in the Thomas River area.

Feel free to bring your bike to explore the farm or surrounding areas if you like!

It is lovely to run anywhere on the farm. It is also possible to run on the gravel farm roads and one is welcome to take our dogs along anytime for company.

Hunting and Bass Fishing are possible, but if you are interested in either, please notify us, as the possibility to do so will depend on a variety of factors.
