The Village

Enjoy true country hospitality when you stay at the Mountain View Country Inn.

The charming old Inn is situated in the heart of Lady Grey and it faces the Witteberg Mountains in a most spectacular manner.  Having a sundowner on the veranda can change one’s perspective of life forever. 

 

 The architecturally impressive building is one of the oldest in town and it has a very interesting History. 

 

 The Inn has 15 individually decorated bedrooms varying from single to family size.  It also has a Breakfast Room,  Restaurant,  Bar,  Lounge and  Conference Room (Inkomfa).   

 

The relaxed atmosphere is described best in a poem by Danel Oertel.

With “God’s thumbprint on the mountain” you could only expect Lady Grey to be peaceful, spiritual and magical...  Those are the words often used to describe Lady Grey.  Visitors with the intention to sleep one night often look for property the next morning and end up staying much longer.   

 

Beautifully set in a valley with a backdrop of mountains, many trees, a number of interesting old houses and more gravel than tarred roads, Lady Grey is the most scenic of all the villages in the area.  It has a very interesting history and inscriptions on old headstones in the Cemetery confirms it.

 

During the past few years Lady Grey has become a sought after tourism destination and home to artists and people who wish to escape city life.  Locals have also become more aware of tourists and tourism attractions have been made more accessible and visitor friendly.  Various annual events attract a large number of tourists to Lady Grey. 

 

Lady Grey has a vibrant community which includes many young people.  Something is always happening somewhere.  It could be anything from a performance by the Arts Academy (drama, dance and music or choir recital) to an art exhibition by any of the artists, fancy dress party or bring-and-braai at the Mountain View Country Inn, the “Lang Tafel” or a steak evening at the Country Club or just a day of swimming, picnicking and fly fishing at Karnmelkspruit.

 

Lady Grey is situated in the North Eastern Cape, just below Lesotho, in the Southern Drakensberg.  The village is on the Maluti Route, close to Aliwal North and about 2 hours from Bloemfontein. 

 

Lady Grey is also the perfect stopover for Tiffendell Ski resort.  Jouberts Pass on it’s doorstep is the third highest Mountain Pass in South Africa.
