Overlooked by the Compassberg, Nieu Bethesda lies in a fertile valley lined by hills on either side.
Home to a growing number of artists, crafters and other creatives, it’s also home to Helen Martins’ Owl House and Camel Yard.
A host of other activities make Nieu Bethesda a preferred destination to unwind.
