Fleckview is a wonderful escape from a busy life. We especially appreciate that our dog could spend the time there too.

Die natuurskoon en rustigheid was 'n lafenis vir liggaam en siel. Ons het so totaal veilig gevoel daar op die plaas. Heerlik terrein vir 'n familie saamtrek! Sal dit beslis aanbeveel vir vriende en familie.

What an awesome place for the family. We stayed in the Bosbok unit, overlooking the dame....views were amazing. Kids enjoyed the farm animals and had the opportunity to visit the dairy farm where we could buy fresh milk and free range eggs.

Beautiful location, weather was stunning for our stay and we had the whole place to ourselves. Swam in the damn and enjoyed seeing and hearing all the farm animals. Our host was very friendly and accommodating. Only down side for campers was no communal kitchen area or fridge available.

We will definitely be back with friends.
