About Us

The farm Kleinbegin has been in the family for the past 50 years. Oupa Nikkie Niehaus (Grandad) started farming in 1962 and got married in December of the same year and together with his wife, Ouma Francis Niehaus built a life on the farm. Oupa (grandad) passed away in 2010.

In 2015 Grandma (Ouma) decided to move to town and the guesthouse Ouma’s Farmhouse was started.

My husband and I were married in 1989. We have a son and daughter whom are grown up and living their own lives. I love people and like to meet new ones. I am a full-time secretary. If I have a little time to spare I love to read.

Ouma’s Farmhouse is a rural holiday home situated on the Seven Passes Road that runs from George to Knysna and offers quality accommodation for a farm style breakaway.

The unit is ideal for a family holiday and can accommodate up to 8 people at a time.

Around the Farm – What to do

The Seven Passes route is a 75km trip. It is the original road that was build by road builder and engineer, Thomas Bain, in 1867 for transporters to and from Port Elizabeth, which would include traversing 10 rivers and 7 gorges. 
 
With the beautiful mountain and green pastures from the farms, silence and beautiful stars at night, it is a lovely breakaway from the rush of the city.
 
Here are lots of activities in the area like horse riding, mountain bike trails, the Map of Africa and golf courses. The Seven Passes route includes single lane bridges, forestry settlements, the scene of a brief gold rush in 1875  and the Woodville big tree.
 
The Wilderness and Sedgefield area, with lovely beaches and excellent restaurants, is only a stone throw away.  
 
Scenic Knysna is only 45 minutes drive and Mossel Bay and Oudtshoorn are about one hour’s drive away and are lovely for a day trip.
