What a joy to visit Farm 215. Don't expect to be spoiled in high tech 'luxury' instead, enjoy a stay without DSTV and internet and all nature, wildlife, fynbos, great food and the best view. We loved it and will be back. What a joy!

We stayed 1 night at a Fynbos suite and really enjoyed having a place in the middle of nature. The pool is amazing for a nice and cold swim. Dinner is a set menu, which is decided by the cook and is served at a set time. Food is tastefull and made by someone who loves to cook. The suite...

My partner and I had a lovely stay in 1 of the cabins. The sky at night - full of stars, the architectural pool and the private terrace were all big bonuses. The brown tap water (drinkable!) was a bit of a shock for my partner. It is worth to book some activities in the surroundings, such as horse back...

Our 4th visit to this beautiful nature reserve and guest house. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Bed and breakfast is brilliant value and once we get settled we always stay in for dinner too. Only locally/sustainably produced food is served. And go for the Lomond wine - it's the vineyard across the dam in front of you!

This place is a little gem in the hillside. Seriously beautiful open plan rooms in the Fynbos suites - the architecture is such that you feel like you're the only people nestled in the vegetation completely away from civilisation, even though the other suites are fairly close and the farm itself is just off the main road. The suites have...

We stayed for 1 night at this place, we had fynbos suite no3 , which was (as requested) the furthest away from the house. Very peaceful setting, great suite (although missing a fridge), plenty of windows offering great views. Horses are roaming around freely, we saw plenty of tortoises wandering around. Good size pool too. We did a hike up...

The owner was fantastic as were the furry friends. This is an ideal remote place to get away from it all, and I am grateful for the two nights of being able to unwind. Not a drop of rain (which I understand is a problem) and the views are to die for!

The ´fynbos-suites´ in the Farm 215 are huge bungalows in the middle of the nature, There´s a huge balcony (over the whole length of the bungalow), the view over the fynbos to the mountains and the sea is a dream. The space between the three suites is huge and guarantees absolute privacy and quiteness. We had also the chance to...

Our stay at Farm 215 started by turning our Homestead room into the hair and makeup station for myself and my bridesmaids on the morning of our wedding. Their was ample room and the room provided lots of natural light which was key. My husband and I then stayed for two nights to kick off our honeymoon. Our room was...

I support the conservation ethos of this establishment, one of my key reasons for staying there. It's expensive, but because you feel this is contributing to improving biodiversity and conserving local flora and fauna it feels easier to pay the cost... just! Fynbos Suite 1 would be my recommendation for a room - great views and not too far from...
