A lovely guest house on a working farm. Pieter is very attentive and helpful. We booked the self catering cottage, on arrival, Pieter recommended we stay in one of the available guest rooms because it was more suitable for us. He showed us both rooms before making a decision and we agreed with him. The room was well equipped and... More

The first thing we noticed was the excellent food, my dad says the filet was fantastic - in fact, the best he has had in South Africa! - and as vegetarians my mother and I... More

Very quaint decorated rooms with fires and electric blankets. Working farm. Piet has wonderful stories about history of the area. We had a birding guide organized with great knowledge of birds. Magnificent sightings of birds especially flamingos

We stayed over for one night as a friend of ours got married close by. We originally booked for 2 nights and had to cancel one night last minute. Pieter (the owner) was very understanding and we ended up only paying for the one night. We had a self catering room for two. The room was very clean and elegantly... More

We had a wonderful time. Breakfast and supper (dinner) is included in the price and the food was absolutely delicious and we had something different every night. The view is lovely looking out on the Chrissiesmeer (lake) the whole time.

Pieter and Aretha made us feel welcome from the moment that we stepped onto their farm. We only spent one night there, but will definitely be going back. Accommodation good in historic buildings. We had asked for dinner and breakfast, and enjoyed chatting to other guests over these meals. Good farm fare, and a nice selection of wines to choose... More

We stayed in one of the new rooms which was well laid out (although a smaller kist at the bed-end would have made getting to the bathroom a little easier). The room was fully kitted with cooker, microwave, fridge - and an open fire which was welcome on a cold evening. It hadn't been used much though, and when we... More

We recently spent the most wonderful relaxing weekend at Miss Chrissie's country house. The atmospher is relaxing and tranquil with cows, geese, sheep and small buck keeping you company. Our daughter loved meeting the calves and even got to have a dip in the lake which she throughly enjoyed. Our hosts were warm and friendly and the accomodation very comfortable... More
