The setting is simply idyllic, with stunning 5 star views of the mountain, green pastures where cattle and horses graze, a serene spring-fed lake, and the lovely Buffeljags River which runs the length of the farm.
The farm has ownership rights to a few thousand hectares of pristine mountain ground with trails through indigenous forest and fynbos to magical mountain valleys, waterfalls and rock pools.
This truly is a paradise for all.
Media reviews:
"I think it is one of the most idyllic places I have yet discovered... it is a piece of paradise right in our back yard." (CEO Cape Town Tourism, Nov 2007).
Perfect where the road ends. Owner Dion Wright has ticked all the right boxes when it comes to creating my perfect country escape. (Sunday Times review of Somerset Gift Getaway farm by Richard Holmes, 3 February 2013)

Somerset Gift Getaway farm has four charming self-catering accommodation options, Fish Eagle lodge, Rose cottage, Loerie cottage and Olive cottage. The cottages are tastefully appointed with Cape cottage furniture, set about 50m apart and staggered for privacy so individually private yet close enough to be convenient for group bookings.

The accommodation is extremely spacious and designed to take advantage of the magnificent settings with large outside undercover furnished living areas for all weather comfort. All the cottages have manicured gardens with large open grassy areas for the kids to play. The Bushbuck pub is set on the water where guests can socialise, watch a game of rugby or cricket while keeping an eye on the kids swimming, fishing, canoeing and having fun on the zip line. The Bushbuck pub can seat 24 at mealtimes so it is a great place for large groups to get together on the farm. Please note; I do not sell alcohol.

Somerset Gift can accommodate a maximum of 25 guests, however for a group booking of adults/couples that do not want to sleep more than 2 per room, the numbers will be limited to 18.

Had a most amazing weekend with family and friends at Somerset Gift Guest farm, the farm is restful, stylish and peaceful and offers so much for each family member from cycling, hiking, fishing , swimming, mountain biking and nature at its best. The climate is unique as it gets its rainfall in summer and so it offers a wonderful winter retreat. Would highly recommend to family and friends !

Superb. 5 out of 5

The surroundings are breathtaking and the cottages are very comfortable. A truly magical getaway for the kids. Fishing in the dam was by far the highlight for the kids. We will definitely be going back in the near future.

We were 14 altogether as a family and it was one of our best family holidays ever. We so enjoyed the setting, the views, the fires, the river, the walks, the trees, the foefie slide, the fishing, the silence, the mountains and canoeing down the river.

Superb. 5 out of 5
