Geography and History

The many and varied gardens of the district run from the formal to the park-like to the specialist gardens of cacti and succulents.

The historic village of Bedford is tucked up against the Kaggaberg mountain (part of the Winterberg range) and the farms stretch across extensive grasslands and up into the dramatic Mankazana, Cowie and Baviaans River valleys. Angoras, merinos, beef cattle, goats and game are to be seen all over.  Towns close to Bedford include Adelaide and Somerset East.
