PC and family are wonderful down to earth, warm hosts. Everyone was involved. My city kids loved the farm experience - riding horses, bottle feeding lambs and cuddling chickens. Wished we’d stayed longer.

New Holme is a home away from home. The care and hospitality we received was amazing. The beds are really comfortable so a great nights sleep was had by all. Marisca indeed is the Queen of the Kitchen so come to dinner hungry after a game drive to see the hippo especially after a long trip!! And that's not all - the night game drive is unbelievably fantastic for star gazing and seeing the night five!! Definitely a place to make our home again and again on long trips - definitely a place that has become a holiday stop over. The windmills and animals and landscape make for incredible photo opportunities so a 2 day stay is a must the next time we go. P.C. and Marisca and their girls are incredibly talented and definitely make the stop over worth while!! We were treated like kings and will be back for calf feeding and more!! Kid friendly is not the right description of what our stop over was like. 2 days is a must!!

We wanted a farm experience in the Karoo and got more than we ever anticipated. From the time we arrived to the time we left we were hosted by two amazing people. PC and the award-winning Chef Marisca are a delight. The room in the old farmhouse was comfortable and the silence were wonderful. The short game drive to the Hippos at sunset was a bonus we did not expect. The dinner and breakfast was what you would expect from that kind of environment. We could have stayed on for at least 2 more days.
