Battlefields Country Lodge & Sports Resort was established in 1998 by Lourens & Nan Roos. This was a 100 ha farm with old farm lands, the old original cottage used as a workshed and the main dwelling with 5 bedrooms.
Two old, broken down grain silos stood next to the old milking shed. The old cottage was first converted into 6 en-suite rooms. The milking shed was not repairable and the roofing was used to build a gazebo, in time for our first garden wedding in 2000. The silos were built up into 4 en-suite rooms for guests, which proved to be very popular, hence the addition of 10 more silos!!
