As you turn off the R62 into the farm you arrive at a farm store displaying all sorts of homemade goodies and a restaurant which serves typical South African Cuisine and scrumptious roosterkoek ( bread placed on a grill). The guest rooms are all decorated...

We (2 couples) stayed one night in two very comfortable double rooms, which were very nicely decorated. The tables were nicely set-up for the dinner, which we thoroughly enjoyed. For breakfast we chose the traditional/local option, which was very nice and different to the usual cooked breakfasts. Staff was friendly and helpful. We loved the eco/support local community approach, and...
