Foster’s Manor Guest House


Experience the days gone by of ostrich feathers and feather palaces at Foster`s Manor Bed & Breakfast (3 star grade) – the embodiment of the ambiance of the era when the ostrich and its feathers reigned supreme in the Little Karoo.

The Ostrich feather palace, Foster`s Manor, was the only one to be established as a charming Bed & Breakfast. The Manor was declared a national monument in 1974 and was restored to its former glory.

The Great British sandstone architect, Charles Bullock, was the creater of the building – his original plans and documents are displayed in the breakfast room of the Manor. J.Foster, a local attorney, instructed Bullock to design a double storey mansion for him. Foster called this mansion “Rus in Urbe”, formally known as Foster`s Folly- later renamed Foster`s Manor.

We, Agnes (Manager), Kahreema and staff, hope that we will have the pleasure of making your acquaintance real soon.

With kind regards from the Little Karoo.
