A Brief History

A Piece of History

Baillie’s Manor Potchefstroom

After the signing of the peace treaty that ended the First Anglo-Boer War in 1881, Captain Baillie received and accommodated 225 British troops at the manor. The Boers blockaded the garrison in their stronghold for just over 3 months while Captain Baillie, being the noble man that he was, fed and clothed the wounded soldiers and managed to rebuild their strength for their 335Km march to Ladysmith; Natal. The remains of the stronghold can still be seen next to the N12 on the way to Klerksdorp.

Colonel Winsloe in particular sang the praise of Captain Baillie and his incredible hospitality and kindness towards the decrepit soldiers. It is this experience of unconditional hospitality that we wish to share with you during your stay with at Baillie’s Manor Guest House and B&B.


Karoo Aesthetics

Architecture of Yesteryear

Baillie’s Manor was built in the classic Karoo-style of the 1800s. Typical of this Karoo-style is the aesthetically pleasing architecture of which many are nostalgic. High ceilings, brilliantly ergonomic proportions and the use of natural materials give it a special simplicity and elegance.

The exceptional sense of space created by the high ceilings and spacious rooms creates an incredible internal volume as well as thermal efficiency. Baillie’s Manor has been owned by numerous people throughout its 150 years and has thus undergone various alterations, remodelling, and restoration to maintain its venerable allure.

Presently Baillie’s Manor Guest House is adorned with 18th and 19th-century wooden furniture and boasts authentic yellow wood ceiling beams. Upon entering the estate you are immediately transported into an almost forgotten era.

I was given one of the newer rooms and was really impressed with the modern styled interior. Beautifully situated away from the CBD had the ideal country feel. The service was impeccable and would definitely advise anyone to chose Baillies Manor for their stay in Potchefstroom. – TripAdvisor

Baillies is a superior B&B in a tree-filled sanctuary. It is close enough to the center of Potchefstroom/North-West University to be convenient and secluded enough to offer a little piece of heaven. As a writing retreat it is unbeatable. This and the breakfasts and wonderfully accommodating staff is why it remains our preferred B&B. – TripAdvisor

I thoroughly enjoyed by one night stay at Baillies Manor. It’s a beautiful place even in the winter. The host made me feel welcomed and privileged and the fire place in the reception area was particularly inviting. The amenities were excellent and the breakfast was delicious. – TripAdvisor
