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, Blesbuck, Impala and Kudu can be spotted. Other small animals such as Duiker, Warthog, Jackals, the odd Mongoose or Meerkat can also be seen while you are exploring.

In 2020, six Zebra were introduced to Rexfield Farm for the very first time!

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, Trail Running and Hiking are all 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 or hike 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. We have begun to mark trails and maps of the farm are available to use.

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

Other ways you can spend your time are enjoying a picnic anywhere on the farm, going for sundowners at Sunset Rocks, flying a kite on the runway, enjoy a Reflexology session, watching sheep shearing (in season) or milking of the cows (in season) or watching your own batch of coffee being roasted!

Picnic anywhere on the farm


Thomas River Tavern is approximately 15 minutes away and is a lovely spot to spend an afternoon; exploring the antique museums and stone art, visiting the Chapel, having a swim and enjoying a scrumptious Pub Lunch. Kiddies can enjoy the play area too.

Rexfield is 30km from both Stutterheim and Cathcart, where one can purchase emergency supplies, grab a cup of coffee at one of the coffee shops (Vinkel & Koljander in Stutt is recommended) or do a hike to the waterfall in the Stutterheim Forest. Stutterheim also hosts PARK RUN every Saturday morning at the Country Club.

Both Stutterheim and Cathcart have doctors on hand to help in an emergency. 

Rexfield to East London: 100km

Rexfield to Queenstown: 92km
