Adley House in Oudtshoorn is a magnificent Victorian home and was built in 1905 by Sidney Herbert Adley during the Ostrich Feather Boom.
Hilda and Pieter Retief started the Adley House B&B in 1994 - a retreat for you to enjoy - in true Victorian style. They manage Adley House personally and as true South Africans and residents in Oudtshoorn for over thirty years, they are able to not only give you a warm welcome and real South African hospitality, but also answer all the questions you may have.
Enjoy our olde world charm and relaxing gardens - Welcome to Adley House, Oudtshoorn.
Built in 1905 by Sidney Herbert Adley during the Ostrich Feather Boom this magnificent Victorian home was bequeathed in 1948 to the orphans of the Second World War.
Mrs Macmoran tended 16 Polish orphans until they completed high school in the early sixties. It was then sold.
We bought it in 1989 and undertook the arduous task of restoration - Hilda started a B&B in 1994 which is now a true guest house - a retreat for you to enjoy - in true Victorian style.
