Thank you for choosing to stay with us at Oakhampton Bed and Breakfast in East London. "Oakhampton B&B was established in 1996 by Jon and Marlene Emslie and has won many awards as one of South Africa's best, and we believe we are the best accommodation in East London.

We welcome you to OakhamptonIt was Jon's dream to keep this well established B&B in the Emslie family and now Jon's Son, Greg and his lovely wife Chantel Emslie own and run the Oakhampton B&B. The Emslie family are descendents of the 1820 Settlers, and have a passion for the Eastern Cape and its people. We have made many friends since we opened our doors and trust that you too will enjoy your time with us.


For those of you not familiar with our unique property, Oakhampton B&B has quickly become known for its personal service, high standards, attention to detail and above all ensuring the comfort of our guests.


Please feel free to wonder around the garden paths at your leisure. Take a stroll to the giant Staghorn Fern and the Orchids and if you are lucky, you could meet Our Hadeda ( Ibis) family nesting above Cottage no. 4. We feed a variety of birds on a daily Basis including Mannikins, Mouse Birds, Weavers, Sparrows, Cape Canaries, Doves, Pigeons and many more. Try to identify as many as you can while relaxing in the garden or Browse through the bird books available in the Breakfast room should you need help identifying some of the lessor known species.
